MTSU will host Minnesota to start its 2010 college football season

Middle Tennessee State University will host the Minnesota Golden Gophers of the Big Ten conference to open its 2010 football season, according to a recent report in The Tennessean. The game will be played on Thursday, Sept. 2.

This continues the recent success the program has enjoyed when it comes to scheduling home games with teams from BCS conferences. This year, the Blue Raiders host Mississippi State from the Southeastern Conference. In recent years, they have hosted Maryland and Virginia from the Atlantic Coast Conference.

It is interesting that this game will be played on a Thursday. As we saw last week, teams playing on Thursday of the opening week of the season get more exposure. Even unsexy match ups like the South Carolina/North Carolina State game got a lot of attention.

Nice work MTSU.

Now, let's improve those special teams.

I can only hope that Luther AND Dauber will be there!

Seriously, I'll be at that game, just like I'm gonna be at this year's game 'gainst Miss. State.
