For the first time since the 2009-2010 season, the Middle Tennessee State University Blue Raiders are suiting up to take the ice. This comeback season, lead by junior Riley Mackenzie, will feature nine ice hockey players and a series of games played at the newly opened Ford Ice Center, their home ice, in metropolitan Nashville. The Blue Raiders will also be playing in an adult ice hockey league starting October 5th, and will play every Sunday. The schedule is still being finalized, but the Blue Raiders do have some games set up outside of the league. Those games include:
November 9th: MTSU vs. Vandy @ Ford Ice Center (away)
February 22nd: MTSU vs. Vandy @ Ford Ice center (away)
February 13th: MTSU vs. MSU @ Ford Ice Center (home)
February 14th: MTSU vs. MSU (location TBA)
The team is currently in talks with LSU, Alabama, and Auburn to get games set up with them as well.
