The Owls like to score 14 points against Middle, and have done so five of the last seven times on the field - including the last two games.

Think we can break that trend?

We will need to in order to win, IMO.

Latest line has FAU a +7 underdog.

Good stuff .

MT's board is at www.BlueRaiderZone.com

Hope to see some FAU fans at the game. Loved your new stadium last year (except could not get little daughter away from playing in the palm tree sand).

Ask any questions here and I'll answer to the best of my abilities.

Who is going to win the battle for the worst in the BELT. the team that barely beat an FCS team or the team that lost to one. Btw raider it looks like mtsu draws even less fans than us.I think u guys r in for a surprise on saturday because FAU is goin to play everybody. the last 4 or 5 years u guys have won, this year we r on the same level should be a shootout.

I've never seen even 18k, our attendance this past Thursday, on any of my previous trips to Boca or Ft. Lauderdale for a game (4 trips).

But if we keep losing, our attendance will certainly tumble.

You drew 14k for your home opener with a new coach.

From a cursory glance, it looks like you've drawn more than the 18,690 we drew last Thursday just three times in the history of your program. Your first game ever, opening the new stadium, and hosting USF a few years back. Those are the only times you've eclipsed 20k fans at a game. We eclipsed 20k three times in 2011 alone.

No surprise here, but Pelini said said Wilbert will be leading the Owls into Murfreesboro on the league call this morning.......

?

Really…FAU and Middle are going to argue over attendance?

Now one has any room to talk here, let's talk about The game,  oh yea no one really has any room to brag there either.

How's the weather in Murfreesboro?  ;)

GO OWLS!
