MURFREESBORO, TN — Redshirt freshman Cody Clark’s 40 yard field goal with 1:49 left, the second of his short career, boosted Middle Tennessee State to a 17-15 win over in-state rival Memphis. The Blue Raider defense preserved the win with key sacks on Memphis’ last gasp drive.

MTSU took over on their own 35 with 3:31 remaining and down 15-14. Pass plays of 18 and 25 yards by Logan Kilgore to Marcus Henry and Tavarres Jefferson helped the Blue Raiders reach the Memphis 23.

Memphis reached the MTSU 36 after the field goal, but sacks by Alexandro Antoine and Jared Singletary of Tiger quarterback Paxton Lynch, the last one leaving no time for another play, pushed the Tigers out of field goal range.

The MTSU Blue Raiders continued their dominance in the series with Memphis, running their record in the series to 17-8-1, including 11-2 at home. Memphis’ last win in Murfreesboro was in 1939. The eighth largest crowd in Floyd Stadium history — 23,922 — was on hand to honor its 2013 Hall of Fame class.

Memphis outgained MTSU 350 to 284 and had over nine more minutes of possession time, but committed 15 penalties for 145 yards. The Tigers had 11 of their penalties for 114 yards in the first half.

MTSU scored on their second possession, going 92 yards in 13 plays, with the help of two pass interference calls. On a favorable overturn after an official review, Kyle Griswould’s catch of Kilgore’s bootleg pass and dive at the right pylon from seven yards out was ruled a touchdown.

The Tigers answered two possessions later with a 21 yard field goal in the second quarter by Jake Elliot. The Memphis drive started at the MTSU 38 following a punt out of the end zone.

The Blue Raiders needed only eight yards to extend the lead to 14-3 with 3:39 left before halftime on a one yard plunge by Jordan Parker. T.T. Barber’s interception at the Memphis 32 and return to the 16 plus an eight yard penalty set up the score.

Elliot’s second field goal of the half of 41 yards made the halftime score 14-6. Bakari Hollier’s interception of a Kilgore pass at his own 22 and 33 yard return started the drive at the MTSU 45 with 1:12 remaining.

The Tigers had to settle for Elliot’s third field goal from 27 yards on their first possession of the second half to make it 14-9. A false start on second and goal at the MTSU five stalled the drive.

Lynch’s one yard rollout pass to Alan Cross on third and goal at the one gave Memphis a 15-14 lead with 13:38 remaining in the game, capping a 10 play, 69 yard drive. Lynch’s two point conversion pass was incomplete, leaving the margin for a field goal to win instead of tie.

The Blue Raiders raised their record to 2-1, while the Tigers fell to 0-2.

Notre Dame leaving Big East for ACC; Football stays an Independent

To no one’s surprise, Notre Dame will be leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports but football. The ACC announced on Wednesday that the catholic university will play five football games every year against the league’s programs but will be a full member in all other sports.

The league also said that it is increasing its exit fees for the conference’s schools to three times the annual operating budget, which would be more than $50 million.

With this development, the Big East seems to be in trouble as far as a basketball conference goes.

They’ve lost Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC, and West Virginia to the Big 12, now a national brand in Notre Dame and the retirement of Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, basketball seems to have taken a hit. Only Louisville, Cincinnati, Villanova and Georgetown are left.

But the Big East has added Memphis, Temple, SMU, Houston and Central Florida. Of that group, only Memphis and Temple have strong basketball programs.

The University of Cincinnati Bearcats football team and their 10,000-plus fans made the eight-hour road trip to Memphis for the Liberty Bowl and came out victorious over the SEC’s Vanderbilt Commodores, 31-24.

Head coach Butch Jones, who had a 4-8 team last year said the seniors were the reason for the team’s resurgence to 10-3 and a Big East championship.

It marks only the fifth time that the Bearcats have won 10 games in a season, 1951, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

With UC’s 13th all-time bowl appearance, their record is 7-6 overall.

The Bearcats wore a new helmet for Saturday’s game. It featured a matte black finish. The usual C-Paw logo was on the left side of the helmet, with the players’ jersey numbers on the right side.

The helmets were made for the Liberty Bowl only. The football team gets to keep the helmets as part of their bowl gifts.

The rest of their uniform was the same.
