Rick Stockstill is still feel the high of shocking No. 25 Miami 45-31. The MTSU head coach made a joke after his team’s win.
On Wednesday, Stockhill spoke to 247Sports’ Matt Howe on Middle Tennessee State’s win over Miami:
“They ran for 194 yards against Texas A&M, the number whatever (ranked) team in the country,” Stockstill said. “They ran for 68 against us, they averaged 1.6 yards per carry, they gave us $1.5 million but they got 1.6 yards per carry. I don’t know where that came from.”
Middle Tennessee State outgained Miami in total yards accounted for 507-to-367. The Blue Raiders also forced 3 turnovers from Miami.
