Minnesota vs. Middle Tennessee State Preview
On Thursday, September 2nd, the Minnesota Gophers and the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders will go toe to toe in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. This game won't be a "gimme" game like most Big Ten schools play in their opening game. The Blue Raiders went 10-3 last season and were the Sun Belt Conference Runner-Ups. They return a lot of players from that team, with 8 starters on offense including dual threat quarterback Dwight Dasher. However, Dasher is under investigation by the NCAA and may be suspended, but that remains to be seen (he owes an 80 year old $1,500 for a poker debt, seriously). Middle Tennessee State is considered the favorite to win the Sun Belt this season. The game is now one week away.
