MTSU’s ongoing athletics ascension is meteoric, to say the least. In recent years, the Blue Raider men’s basketball team has cracked the Top 25 national ranking and enjoyed multiple fantastic runs in the NCAA Tournament, elevating MTSU to the level of a national brand. In addition, our football teams have been bowl-eligible nine out of the last 12 years and won the Camellia Bowl in 2017. Our other sports programs are also enjoying great success on the courts and fields of play.
