Middle Tennessee 42, Florida Atlantic 35 (OT): Logan Kilgore connected with Kyle Griswould on a 19-yard touchdown pass in overtime as the visiting Blue Raiders defeated the Owls in a battle of former Sun Belt Conference foes.

After Griswould reeled in the go-ahead catch, Middle Tennessee (3-1, 1-1 Conference USA) made a defensive stand as Dearco Nolan sacked Jaquez Johnson on the Blue Raiders' 9 to seal its eighth win in eleven meetings against Florida Atlantic (1-3, 0-2).
