Middle Tennessee nearly made history in its last game before losing in overtime to a nationally ranked Missouri team on the road. It would have been the Sun Belt's first-ever win against a ranked team.

Now the Blue Raiders are ready to make some more history this week. When Temple (0-4) visits on Saturday, it'll be the first team from a BCS conference ever to visit Floyd Stadium.

"I think it's a positive for our school and fans to have a member of a BCS conference come in here," MTSU coach Andy McCollum said. "Our fans will be excited about it, and we know we'll have to be really good as a football team."
