MTSU drops road game to Kent St. 28-3 MTSU couldn't capitalize on scoring chances and lost their third in a row to open the season. MTSU received the opening kickoff and drove to the KS 30 yard where the drive stalled. The long FG attempt came up short. On KS first offensive play CB Khari Burke drilled the running back in the flat and forced a fumble to set up first and goal from the 9. MTSU wasn't able to cash in and had to settle for a FG and its only lead of the game. The Blue Raiders were able to limit the KS raid offense for a few drives, but ultimately KS got it rolling and they couldn't be stopped. MTSU's rushing attack was held in check all game and the passing offense was hurt by untimely drops. MTSU was only able to gain 121 total yards in the game. "I know we were credited with 6 drops, but our receivers have got to help out the QB more. I counted atleast 10 balls that fell off of their hands onto the turf. I need guys to buy into what we are doing here at MTSU." The schedule doesn't get any easier as MTSU plays BCS opponents Tennessee and Georgia Tech the next 2 weeks.
