Date:

Middle Tennessee senior QB Brent Stockstill accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Stockstill (6'0"/215) will dual it with quarterbacks Jake Browning and Manny Wilkins (knee), among others, at the All-Star game. As a senior, Stockstill threw 29 touchdowns with 10 interceptions while averaging 7.9 yards per pass attempt for 3,544 yards. Those are pretty decent numbers and he's been doing so for years now. It's possible that Stockstill gets some NFL looks, but he needs to impress at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl to make that happen.

Middle Tennessee redshirt freshman RB Chaton Mobley rushed for 45 yards on 10 carries and added three receptions and 36 yards as a receiver in Saturday's 45-13 bowl loss to Appalachian State.

Mobley made two nice plays -- he had a 27-yard run and a 25-yard catch -- but he was otherwise quiet in a sloppy game by the Blue Raiders (8-6) offense. QB Brent Stockstill was hit often and Middle Tennessee State couldn't give Mobley many rush attempts while trailing big for most of tonight's game. Looking ahead, the Blue Raiders will be on the look for the next great quarterback with Stockstill graduating, but Mobley should enter 2019 as the Blue Raiders' No. 1 or No. 2 offensive weapon along with WR Ty Lee. Mobley should improve on his 624 rushing yards and four touchdowns next season, and it would be a total surprise if he isn't more involved as a receiver with senior pass-catching RB Tavares Thomas off to bigger and better things.

Middle Tennessee senior RB Tavares Thomas rushed for 13 yards on six carries and caught four passes for 51 yards in Saturday's 45-13 bowl loss to Appalachian State.

Middle Tennessee couldn't get much going on offense with Appalachian State getting consistent pressure on QB Brent Stocksill, but Tavares still managed to make a few plays as a receiver to end his career at least on an okay note. As a senior, Thomas scored nine total touchdowns with more than half of his yardage coming as a receiver. With Thomas graduating, it's possible that redshirt freshman RB Chaton Mobley picks up more work as a receiver in 2019.

Middle Tennessee junior WR Ty Lee caught four passes for 55 yards in Saturday's 45-13 bowl loss to Appalachian State.

Appalachian State put a ton of pressure on QB Brent Stockstill and also did an excellent job of limiting Lee, who is Middle Tennessee State's best play maker. Lee was completely quiet outside of his 28-yard catch-and-run, but it was still a quality year for the junior even if he didn't quite live up to the lofty preseason expectations. Lee will head into the 2019 season coming off a 71-883-7 campaign, but next season could be challenging with Stockstill heading either to the NFL or to the coaching business. Lee has a chance at four-straight seasons with at least 63 receptions, 699 yards, and five touchdowns.

Middle Tennessee senior QB Brent Stockstill completed 25-of-37 passes for 330 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Saturday's 45-13 bowl loss to Appalachian State.

Stockstill was constantly under pressure, so it took a valiant effort and a positive mindset to rack up the 330 yards tonight. It wasn't the ending the Stockstill family wanted -- his father is the Blue Raiders coach -- but it was quite the career for the senior quarterback. Stockstill threw 106 touchdowns across 3.5 seasons at Middle Tennessee State with three 3,200-yard campaigns. With that much production, Stockstill has a shot at getting NFL looks but his planned future is to get into the coaching business. For the Blue Raiders (8-6), the 2019 season will likely be a re-building year as they look for a quarterback.

Middle Tennessee will play in the New Orleans Bowl against Appalachian State on December 15th.

Appalachian State (10-2) has been announced as a New Orleans Bowl participant for a while but found out their opponent today. These teams have played just three times in their history with the last meeting in 1992. Middle Tennessee (8-5) is 2-1 in their all-time series.

Middle Tennessee senior RB Tavares Thomas rushed for two yards on three carries while catching two passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 26-24 loss to UAB in the Conference USA Championship Game.

The Blue Raiders were almost completely shut down on the ground, failing to rush for even 100 yards as a team in this one. Thomas (6'0/245) did manage a 19-yard touchdown grab just before the end of the first quarter, but would mostly be shut out in the box score for the rest of the contest. While the senior rushed for a healthy 507 yards (5.5 YPC) and nine touchdowns in just eight games last year, he has only managed 226 yards on the ground in 11 games this time around.

Middle Tennessee junior RB Terell West caught three passes for 81 yards in Saturday's 27-25 loss to UAB in the Conference USA Championship Game.

West (5'10/203) did not receive a carry in this one, but managed to bolster by minor degree what would have otherwise been a nothing day with his work as a receiver. His long catch went for 55 yards. On the whole this year, the junior has rushed for 288 yards and a touchdown while catching 20 passes for 171 yards across 12 games played. His production has been relatively modest, but he does offer some versatility when called upon.

Middle Tennessee senior QB Brent Stockstill completed 29-of-45 passes for 362 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 27-25 loss to UAB in the Conference USA Championship Game.

Stockstill burned UAB for the most passing yards they have allowed since the program was rebooted in 2017, but his was not a completely clean game and the Blazers were able to overcome the hefty yardage total when all was said and done. For the campaign, Stockstill has now thrown for 3,203 yards with a 28/8 TD/INT ratio across 13 games played. He has thrown for at least 30 touchdown passes in two seasons to date and will try to hit that mark one last time when Middle Tennessee takes part in their bowl game later this winter.

Middle Tennessee junior WR Ty Lee brought in seven receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown in a 27-3 rout of UAB on Saturday.

Lee had big expectations coming into the season, but failed to live up to them over the first six games. It's fair to say that's no longer the case. He's scored in six straight games, and he goes over the century mark for the second time in three games. He's also had back-to-back seven reception games, giving him 65 on the year. Expect another similar catch total next week in the rematch with UAB for the Conference USA title.

Middle Tennessee senior QB Brent Stockstill threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns on 22-for-29 passing in a 27-3 rout of UAB on Saturday.

The win gives the Blue Raiders the Conference USA East title, and sets up a rematch against UAB in the title game next week. Stockstill was superb against the Blazers on Saturday, throwing (almost) everything on time and accurately while picking up his 25th and 26th touchdown, respectively. IF Stockstill plays like this again next weekend, the Blue Raiders have an excellent chance of coming away with the Conference USA belt.

Middle Tennessee redshirt freshman RB Chaton Mobley ran for 98 yards on 16 carries, and caught five passes for 62 yards and a score in a 34-23 loss to Kentucky on Saturday.

The Blue Raiders came up short, but there were some solid offensive efforts in this one; particularly Mobley. The 6-foot-1, 245-pound bruiser was one of Brent Stockstill's favorite targets in the game, and he hauled in his first touchdown reception of the year in the loss. Mobley has really come on strong, and he'll be a name to keep an eye on in 2018. UAB is next.
Sat, Nov 17, 2018 03:23:00 PM

Middle Tennessee senior QB Brent Stockstill completed 30-of-33 passes for 293 yards with three scores and an interception in a 34-23 loss to Kentucky on Saturday.

A lot of this damage was done with the Blue Raiders down three scores, but you have to be impressed with what the senior signal-caller was able to do against one of the better defenses in the SEC, if not the country. He did have the one interception, but outside of that the southpaw was accurate and on-time with his throws. This was a really impressive effort, albeit in a losing effort. Stockstill and the Blue Raiders will look for their eighth win next Saturday against UAB.
Sat, Nov 17, 2018 03:19:00 PM

Middle Tennessee redshirt freshman RB Chaton Mobley rushed 15 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 48-32 road victory against UTEP.

Mobley wasn't as impressive as last weekend, when he rumbled for 198 yards and 7.9 yards per carry, but he still had a decent afternoon. He has found the end zone twice in the past three games. Mobley's usage is up lately and he is giving Blue Raiders fans a glimpse of the future and life after QB Brent Stockstill. The Blue Raiders step out of conference next Saturday with a trip to Kentucky.
Sat, Nov 10, 2018 07:48:00 PM

Middle Tennessee junior WR Ty Lee registered 10 receptions for a career-high 158 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 48-32 win at UTEP.

Lee recorded his sixth-ever 100-yard day, and his catch total and yardage total both represented career bests. He is working on a four-game scoring streak with a total of five touchdowns. Lee is working on a seven-game run with at least four receptions, too. He'll get a chance to show what he can do against an SEC opponent on the road against Kentucky next Saturday.
