Middle Tennessee State. The game on the schedule that many had pegged as the easiest. And despite this fact, a game that is not being played at 11am (I know, I know...I too am shocked). While MTSU is not a MACtion team, they appear to have MACtion offensive abilities. At least when playing a team the caliber of Savannah State (who they beat 61-7 last week).
The Gophers are 1-0 all time against MTSU. That means Middle Tennessee has the inglorious distinction of losing to Tim Brewster they only time they faced Minnesota. The Gophers better be prepared, because if I was MTSU I'd want to avenge that horror ASAP.
