Date: Tuesday, October 5th, 8:00 ET
Location: Johnny Floyd Stadium, Murfreesboro, TN
Game Line: Middle Tennessee St -3
Over/Under OTB

Much was expected of the Middle Tennessee St Blue Raiders at the start of the season, but All-Sun Belt QB Dwight Dasher’s suspension and a 2-2 start have dampened expectations for a team that quite a few experts thought could run the table. However, the Blue Raiders are currently 1-0 in conference and with Dasher returning to take over the starting job from Logan Kilgore, MTSU is in good shape coming into the game that will probably decide the winner of the Sun Belt conference. Middle Tennessee St got off to a strong start in conference play last Saturday, coasting to a 34-14 road win against the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns. Running backs Phillip Tanner and D.D. Kyles dominated the game for MTSU on the ground, with the two combining to carry the ball 22 times for 188 yards and three touchdowns, while Kilgore was efficient enough through the air for the Blue Raiders to secure the win. Meanwhile, Troy comes into this key match-up 1-0 in conference as well after last week’s 35-28 victory against Arkansas St. In the victory, Troy put up over 500 yards of offense led by QB Corey Robinson who threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. Troy will need to shore up a defense though that is allowing 32.5 PPG despite facing only one BCS opponent in their first four games. Another interesting note for bettors to consider is that all four of Troy’s games have been decided by seven points or less. Thus, gamblers should expect a close high scoring game with Middle Tennessee St eventually pulling away and the Blue Raiders putting themselves in the driver’s seat for the Sun Belt title.
