The Tigers are coming off an impressive win against Mississippi Valley where they only won by 6, but were the much better team throughout. They will look to build off the momentum they gained in that last game as they travel to play the Blue Raiders, who will offer a much tougher challenge.
The Blue Raiders are coming off a loss, but there were plenty of positives they can take out of their defeat to #7 Michigan. They will now look to put one in the win column at home against much easier competition.
Tennessee State Tigers
Starting QB Cameron Rosendahl had a great game in the Tigers victory last time out throwing for 330 yards and 1 touchdown. His number one receiver in that contest was Chris Rowland who exploded for 172 yards and a touchdown on 11 catches.
These guys will both need to be outstanding on Saturday for the Tigers to hang with the Blue Raiders.
The rushing game, on the other hand, was not so great only getting 117 yards and only averaged 3.2 yards per carry.
The defensive side of the ball was outstanding for the Tigers in that last game as they held their opponents well under 300 yards and held Mississippi Valley to only 42 yards on the ground.
That is an unlikely result in this game, but this defensive unit will look to build off that performance to try and keep this score as respectable as possible.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
The Blue Raiders are coming into this one off the back a pretty good loss against #& Michigan who nobody thought would be able to make that game even mildly interesting.
They were -33.5 point underdogs, but only ended up losing by 19.
The Blue Raiders starting QB Asher O’Hara ended up having a nice game getting 217 yards through the air and a 2-1 TD to INT ratio. He was also the team’s leading rusher with only 32 yards and a touchdown.
All things considered the defense was pretty decent allowing the Wolverines to get 453 combined yards.
They only allowed 220 yards through the air on 19-33 passing and that leaves plenty for this secondary to be proud of and to build off of going into this matchup against the Tigers.

The Blue Raiders should cruise in this spot as they are coming off a really solid performance against Michigan.
The Tigers were also impressive in their first game, but against far worse opposition and I can only see a crushing win for the Blue Raiders in this spot. Look for Asher O’Hara and Co. to put up some nice numbers and get back to 1-1 on the season.
