We have reached week five of the season, and if teams want to be players towards the end of the season they need to start making their moves now.
It’s a Conference USA showdown on Saturday afternoon at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton. The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders come to town to take on the Florida Atlanta Owls.
The Blue Raiders have won the last nine games played between the two teams.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders come into this game with a 2-2 record and a lot of question marks coming into this game that need to be answered before the opening kickoff.
The biggest question for this team is if Brent Stockstill will be the guy under center when the offense trots onto the field on Saturday.
He has missed the last two games with a cracked sternum and a separated collarbone. Without him starting they are a completely different team and not in a good way. Stockstill has a big arm and is one of the best mid major quarterbacks in the country, and his presence will really be missed if he isn’t able to go for this game.
If he isn’t able to go look for Sophomore John Urzua to go in his place. He struggled against the Gophers, but looked much better against Bowling Green Falcons.
They will need him to have a game like he did against the Falcons if he starts. He just needs to be confident in his stuff and if he is able to do that, he could lead this team to an upset.
Florida Atlantic Owls
On the other side of this match up is the Florida Atlantic Owls who come into this game having only won one game and that was against an FCS level school.
In their last game they played the Buffalo Bulls and they couldn’t get the late touchdown and that led to a 34-31 defeat.
In most of the games so far this season it has been a combination of bad defense, and bad offense that has led to the defeats.
In the first game of the season against Navy they were only eight point underdogs, but they ended up losing 42-24.
To win this game the defense needs to get pressure early and make however is the quarterback for the Blue Raiders uncomfortable early on.
If they can do that they can get their second win of the season, but it won’t be an easy task.
