Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
Middle Tennessee is in the middle of the no-mans land between Memphis and Nashville. It is so much in the middle of Tennessee that its football field is thought to be the geographic center of the state. Beat that Central Michigan and Central Florida!
Their former mascots were Nathan Bedford Forrest, a guy dressed in the Klan bedsheets, and a slave-sniffing hound dog. Now it is a Blue Raider, as in they burn crosses in front of any house that voted blue in 2008.
MTSU and Idaho participated in I-A's highest scoring game in 2001, a 70-58 barnburner. This record stood for two years until Tennessee had enough of that and paid Arkansas to have a 7 overtime game.
