Through 3 Quarters

The Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. Sitting on a score of 28-15, they have looked like the better team out there today, but there's still one more quarter to play.

The Blue Raiders have enjoyed the tag-team combination of WR Jaylin Lane and QB Bailey Hockman. The former has caught four passes for one TD and 86 yards, while the latter has passed for two TDs and 202 yards on 22 attempts. No one has had a standout game offensively for the Monmouth Hawks, but they have gotten two touchdowns from QB Tony Muskett.
