Middle Tennessee didn’t have much to get excited about on Saturday.

MTSU lost its home opener 28-6 to in-state foe Vanderbilt and only put up 215 yards offensively. The Blue Raiders were down 28-0 the only time they reached the end zone — a Brent Stockstill touchdown pass to Richie James early in the fourth — but they almost scored again in the final minute.

On third and goal from the 20, Stockstill lobbed one up to Ty Lee in the corner of the end zone. Lee almost came down with the pass, but it fell incomplete — something whoever controls the fireworks at Floyd Stadium did not realize. Watch this awkward moment.

A little too quick on the trigger right there, folks. Too funny.

Woo hoo! An incomplete pass!

The Blue Raiders tried it again on fourth and goal, and again Stockstill’s pass fell incomplete. There were no fireworks that time.
