The bottom line in this game, a Big 10 team playing a Sun Belt team should always be a favorite, and Minny is 6-2 ATS their last 8 versus the Sun Belt conference. The KEY in this game is that Middle Tennessee who is a GOOD football team, has lost the services of all world QB Dwight Dasher to suspension. We was the 7th ranked offensive player in total yard production in 2009 and will be sorely missed. I liken it to the San Fran 49ers losing Joe Montana right before the Super Bowl. Minnesota has some issues on defense, but their offense is led by Adam Weber making his 39th start at QB and the guy can flat out get it done. Minnesota also has been known to be a bankable team over the years in their openers going 7-1 the last 8 years SU. Without Dasher at QB for MTSU in this one, and a JUCO transfer starting his first division I game against a BCS school, I like Minnys chances here to outscore MTSU on the road and win by 8 to 10 points.
