The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders (3-5, 1-3) couldn’t muster the offense to defeat the Marshall Thundering Herd and fell in their annual Blackout game by a final score of 38-10 in Murfreesboro.
The loss was not the only negative part of the night, as star receiver Richie James left with an injury that could likely be season-ending. James was one of the few bright spots on the night, reeling in five passes for 37 yards and a touchdown.
Middle Tennessee has some things to work on during their upcoming bye week, with turnovers and offensive stalling hurting the team more than ever. The defense is not without fault either, as they must find a way to consistently get the ball back into the offenses hand. Look for this team to hit the ground running at practice on Sunday and begin work on their final four games of the season.
