The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders don't appear to be intimidated at all by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Playing in the less than friendly confines of Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta, the Blue Raiders have been aggressive in their attack and go into halftime tied with their hosts, 21-21.
At the end of the first quarter, the score was all knotted at seven. But 10 seconds into the second quarter, MTSU scored on a 60-yard rushing touchdown by Benny Cunningham to give the Blue Raiders a 14-7 lead. Georgia Tech would answer on a well orchestrated, 11-play, 69-yard drive that ended with a three-yard touchdown run by Tevin Washington, evening the score, 14-14.
Middle Tennessee then returned fire and shocked the Yellow Jackets on a 12-play, 88-yard drive that ended with another rushing touchdown by Cunningham, bringing the score to 21-14. Georgia Tech evened things up late in the quarter on another touchdown run by Washington, capping off a nine-play, 45-yard Yellow Jackets drive.
