LOSS

Taking a glance at this and seeing a Big-10 team playing a Sun Belt team with a field goal to beat the number makes it look very appealing. Hold on! Rick Stockstill has won 20 of his 29 conference games since roaming the sidelines for the Blue Raiders and this is a loaded offense that finished No. 7 in the country last year, winning 10 games for the first time. They were 5-1 at home (while Minnesota went 2-4 on the road). The MTSU line returns four. They are without their QB but the line reflects that (the line has shifted by a touchdown). This team won on the road in ACC country last year which is never easy. Tim Brewster has struggled to get things going in Minnesota where his teams are a horrible 14-24. They return just two starters on defense, with an entirely new defensive line. They are facing a high-octane, experienced offense on the road. This is simply not a good spot for Minnesota and I like Middle Tenn to spring the mild upset.
