Murfreesboro, TN– Cody Clark kicked a field goal from 40 yards out and Middle Tennessee ended the game with back to back sacks, leading to a 17-15 win over the Tigers…the Blue Raiders 5th win in six games against the U of M.

Making just his second career start, redshirt freshman Paxton Lynch completed his first ten passes of the second half, throwing his 1st career touchdown…a 1-yarder to Alan Cross to give the Tigers a 15-14 fourth quarter lead.  But Lynch also threw two costly interceptions.  Throw in 15 penalties for 145 yards and the U of  M opens the season 0-2 for a 6th straight year.
