Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders 2016 Schedule Breakdown

We continue the Conference USA schedule breakdown with Middle Tennessee:

9/3 Alabama A&M
9/10 at Vanderbilt
9/17 at Bowling Green
9/24 Louisiana Tech
10/1 at North Texas
10/15 Western Kentucky
10/22 at Missouri
10/29 at FIU
11/5 UTSA
11/12 at Marshall
11/19 at Charlotte
11/26 FAU

Notes: September is an interesting month for MTSU, and there is plenty of potential to make a huge early splash. I see solid wins against both Alabama A&M and Bowling Green, and a chance at a Power 5 SEC upset at Vanderbilt. Louisiana Tech will be a challenge on the road, and that could leave the Blue Raiders with a 3-1 opening month.
October is another month loaded with opportunity, and could leave MTSU as the only Group of Five program with a 2-0 record over the SEC if they can pull a win over Missouri in Columbia, which I think they can. There are 3 road games in the month, but I still see MTSU winning 3 of 4.
November should be another month where MTSU wins 3 of 4, as the road game at Marshall looks like a loss to me. Still, the Blue Raiders should pick up wins over UTSA, Charlotte, and FAU.
Overall Projected Record: 9-3
