Sun Belt Football: MTSU @ ASU on ESPN2 - 7:00 pm

ERROR: A link was posted here (img) but it appears to be a broken link.



Arkansas State takes on Middle Tennessee in their first ever nationally telvised home contest on ESPN2…looks to be a good game with some implications…

ASU MTSU Series:

The series dates back to 1948 and has seen the Blue Raiders outscore the Red Wolves 328-140 in the 11 games played.  Middle Tennessee won the 1948 and 1949 games and the two teams did not meet again until 2001 as Sun Belt foes.

While Arkansas State is 2-9 all-time versus Middle Tennessee, the Red Wolves picked up a 31-14 victory over the Blue Raiders the last time the two teams met at ASU Stadium (2008). A-State's only other victory also came in Jonesboro, a 13-7 win in 2002.The Red Wolves snapped a five-game skid against the Blue Raiders with its 2008 victory, but dropped a 38-14 decision last season in Murfreesboro.

In the most recent meeting, Arkansas State saw Middle Tennessee score on its first three possessions and was unable to recover, suffering a 38-14 setback against the Blue Raiders at Floyd Stadium. The Blue Raiders raced out to the early advantage on an 80-yard pass from quarterback Dwight Dasher to D.D. Kyles, a 39-yard field goal by Alan Gendreau and a 12-yard pass from Dasher to McClover.  Dasher threw his third touchdown pass of the game with 6:20 left in the second quarter to put the Blue Raiders up 24-0.

Dasher passed for 263 yards and four touchdowns, while also adding 73 rushing yards to lead the potent Blue Raiders' offense.

ASU 37-17.

MTSU looks like crap, when do they bail on Dasher, he sucks as a qb. He can run good but………..

They have been poor for the most part ever since he came back and it looks like he has ruined the team chemistry.

Pretty BAD attendance at ASU too, for a game that still matters!!!! MAYBE a quarter full?????

ANOTHER Dasher pick followed ANOTHER ASU TD. 44-17. Maybe they finally bench him, for the yar IMHO. Lucky he only got a 4 game suspension and not banned for the season, OR IN JAIL!

Making FAU look good. WE dominated ASU for 3 qtrs. and then all hell broke loose on us. Gotta say Arky St. not too bad a team!

ASU has once again benefited from TO's for sure…but 44 points??

IMO, we have a good chance in our game against MTSU.

Defense is suspect at best…….

If ASU wins tonight…which looks like it will be the case, this will even out in the conference standings a little and maybe it'll help us.

Now if ASU looses @ FIU since they'll probably beat W Kentucky… and at the end of the season we remain at only 3 losses in conference play and we beat M Tennessee, this could really help us out.  But, there's just too many "what if" scenarios

Final 51-24 ASU!

Does MTSU not have a back-up qb? Is he hurt or has he already walked off the team since Coach Stockstill has put all his eggs in the Dwight Dasher basket. For the night 17 of 34 (most being gimme completions with the game out of hand) for only 146 yard or only 4.3 yds per ATTEMPT! Oh and 4 picks (easily could have been 6!) and a fumble to boot. Nice night! Good game ASU!

Coach Stockstill, you should have taken the East Carolina job, you won't get another offer that good, EVER. Besides it ws you OC and DC that made your team last year and they both left after you passed on EC. You really miss both, but ESPECIALLY Diaz, who is doing a great job with the D as Miss. St.

Your felon qb sucks AND your D sucks, nice game MUTS!
