Fifty days from now, MTSU will open the 2007 season at Florida Atlantic in what promises to be a most intriguing matchup.
The Blue Raiders are coming off a 7-6 season and their first trip to a bowl game (Motor City). However, they did lose their final three games.
FAU, meanwhile, started 0-4 but finished the season winning five of its last eight games. More important, the Owls return 19 starters and two specialty team starters.
