Speaking of local teams playing each other, the MTSU and TSU football teams announced earlier this week they will renew their series by opening the 2019 season against each other. That game will be played in Murfreesboro. After that, there’s a good chance the two teams will play at Nissan Stadium. “Hopefully we can continue to play Middle Tennessee in the coming years,” said TSU athletics director Teresa Phillips. “We are discussing the possibility of bringing the game to Nissan Stadium.” It won’t be the first time the series has been played at a neutral site. MTSU and TSU played at Vanderbilt Stadium from 1973-1978 and then again from 1986-1993. – Mike Organ, dnj.com – Read More
