Middle Tennessee (or just “MT,” per athletic department branding) is a Conference USA team that’s struggled of late, with losing seasons in 2020 and 2019. This year’s team looks like a mix of young and new in lots of places, so it’s hard to say if this squad is looking at an uphill season, or if they’ve been restocked and recharged.

Last week they faced FCS/Big South member Monmouth, which has made regular playoff appearances the past few years. For the first half, Monmouth gave MT all they could handle, though a stream of mistakes ended the upset attempt. Unfortunately, ESPN’s JV crew filmed the game, with many plays beginning with a tight zoom on the QB, and even the “wide” overhead shots were often tight on the box, which left out receivers from the frame, so there’s some inferring to be made. The available highlights are even worse, so apologies in advance for not having much video this week.
