Blue Raiders Lose to Louisiana

Blue Raiders football had another disappointing weekend, losing to Louisiana 45-20 before a hometown crowd of 13,500.  Chip Walters provides this game recap:

Middle Tennessee never got on track either side of the ball.

The Blue Raiders inducted five new members into their athletic hall of fame earlier in the day but could not close the monumental occasion with a win at night. 

Logan Kilgore threw for 239 yards on 22-of-40 passes, including a high of seven to Malcolm Beyah for 86 yards and the lone touchdown toss.

William Pratcher led the Middle Tennessee ground game with 73 yards on 19 carries.

Gorby Loreus and Roderic Blunt paced the defensive unit with nine tackles apiece with both players registering five solo stops.

The Blue Raiders face Tennessee in Knoxville this weekend.
