TSU Tigers will offer Skyhawks tough task as homecoming foe
Posted: Thursday, October 2, 2008 3:59 pm
They will likely need every bit of that average to beat their homecoming opponent, the Tennessee State University Tigers, when they pay a visit to Hardy M. Graham Stadium for a key Ohio Valley Conference game at 2 on Saturday afternoon.
The Tigers are the second highest scoring team in the Ohio Valley Conference, averaging 32.8 points per contest behind quarterback Antonio Heffner. The Tigers' QB is averaging 259.8 passing yards and 313.6 total yards per contest.
The Skyhawks (4-1, 2-0) will try to take advantage of TSU's propensity to turn the ball over. UTM is plus-6 in turnover margin and scored two defensive TDs in last week's 63-38 win over Murray State, while the Tigers (4-1, 1-0) committed three turnovers to stall drives in their loss to Florida A&M.
