I thought Tennessee State played where the Titans play, and that place seats well over 60K. That may have been why the did that.

1984 was a long time ago. There are a few people who need to realize that the past is over. I am very familiar with Middle Tennessee, and my wife is at BYU. They are members of the FBS Sun Belt Conference and typically do very well having defeated Maryland and Vanderbilt over the past few years and caused fans of Alabama, Virginia, and others to sweat bullets. Utah State knows MTSU very well. They lost to them more often than not when they were Sun Belt members. Yes, they lost to McNeese, but color me unimpressed with a meager victory over the absolute worst team in the PAC-12 and FCS Weber who also lost to McNeese. When I think about the principles for which BYU was founded and then see these arrogant, self-righteous comments from people who associate themselves with the school and thus the LDS Church, it is no wonder fans of BYU opponents love to attack the Church and BYU's Honor Code. A little bit of humility and grace sure would be nice and would go much further.

Tennessee State does play at LP field. MIDDLE Tennessee State plays in a stadium on its campus that holds 31,000 and has literally never been completely full.

USU and MTSU only played twice as sun Belt Conf. members and they split the series 1-1.

As Sun Belt members perhaps. MTSU is 2-1 against USU between 2002 and 2004. USU never won in Murfeesboro. My point is that BYU would do well not underestimate what Middle Tennessee can do no matter what their record looks like.

And Wildcat from Ogden, Wyoming UNLV, and New Mexico are beyond pathetic and these schools don't recruit the Southeast like MTSU does, and everyone knows the southeastern schools play better football than schools in any other region of the country. I would take MTSU over those three schools including CSU-Fort Collins any day of the week.

This Tennessee State stuff is confusing.

Middle Tennessee just beat Georgia Tech in Atlanta. I hope we can beat Georgia Tech when we play them. Middle Tennessee will be a quality opponent for BYU.
