    Week 2: Memphis @ Mid Tenn St

    It started like a peewee game. Both MTSU's Dasher and Memphis' Hall threw two INT's in the 1st quarter. The back and forth pickfest only resulted in one score with MTSU's Suber taking one back to the house from 52 yards out.

    After a MTSU FG, the score at the start of the 2nd quarter was 10-0. It wouldn't stay that way for long. Memphis' leading man would get going throwing 2 TD passes in the second with Curtis Steele adding one on the ground.

    With the Blue Raider offense sputtering and the starting Quarterback and Halfback getting pulled after inconsistency and turnovers, they needed a big play. Then Jawan Carson answered..[YOUTUBE]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZhmyTpEWoCY&hl=en&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZhmyTpEWoCY&hl=en&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    After halftime, the Tigers showed they weren't going to be put away easily. Arkelon Hall threw one more TD pass to Carlos Singleton from 15 yards out.

    Turns out that was the last breath of life out of Memphis. From then on it was the D.D. Kyles show. He rushed for TDs from 3, 27, and 6 yards out in the 4th quarter to cement his place as the starting Halfback. Final score 45-28 to move MTSU to 2-0 on the season.

    After an opening week surprise blowout over Clemson, the fans in Murfreesboro are starting to rally behind these Blue Raiders. Could they be the next team to push for a major bowl? Boise State came out of nowhere at the first of the decade. MTSU definitely has the weapons to win several games this year. That said, they need to settle on a quarterback before getting too ahead of themselves.

    Hey man - nice game report. One thing - you need to change your YouTube setting to public or people can't view the videos.

    Week 3: MTSU @ Maryland

    After losing in Murfreesboro last year to open the season, Maryland was looking for some payback. They didn't get it. With their offense bogged down with inconsistency and their defense bending a little more than you'd expect, it was a rough day for the Terrapins.

    The redshirted freshman QB Brent Burnette got the start after coming in at halftime last week to save the game against Memphis. He responded to the new role immediately with this 40 yard strike to Malcom Beyah.

    Then another to RB D.D. Kyles with pressure in his face.

    At halftime the score was 13-3 Blue Raiders.

    With the game very much still in reach, the MTSU defense had to step up also. They bent a little bit themselves, giving up a passing and rushing TD.
    Going into the 4th quarter, the game was 20-10. Both teams would put the ball in the endzone twice. Just like last week, the MTSU defensive backs put the game on their back with these two beauties.

    After adding one more dagger, the final score was 34-24, making the Blue Raiders 3-0 going into the first conference game of the season. A week 4 matchup with rival North Texas. Hopefully the strong performances keep coming.

    Players of the Game:
    MTSU, D. Kyles: 26 car, 87yds, 2 TDs, 6 catches, 96yds, TD
    Maryland, D. Drummond: 7 tkls (3 TFL), 3 Sks.
