NOTEBOOK: Home Finale on Tap for Football

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Middle Tennessee football heads into the final home game with momentum after last weekend's 50-10 rout of FIU, but their opponent, Old Dominion, perhaps has the most momentum of any team in C-USA at the moment.

The Monarchs started the 2021 season 1-6, with their only win in their first seven games coming against FCS foe Hampton. But since Halloween weekend, ODU has rattled off three straight C-USA wins, edging out Louisiana Tech 23-20 at home, cruising 47-24 over FIU, and dominating on defense and special teams to beat Florida Atlantic last week, 30-16.
