The Show's Rundown

The Starting Lineup

The Starting Lineup is the very first segment for each episode of Blue Raider Extra Point. The starting lineup looks at upcoming college football games beyond the C-USA. The segment briefly compares key members and stats for for each team in the lineup and gives a general overview of what to expect going into each of the games.

The Big Blue Review

Kicking it over to the next segment we have the Big Blue Review which takes time to look at news stories coming out of MTSU athletics for that week. Whether it's statements coming from MT Athletic Director Chris Massaro, major upcoming games and victories, or other major news surrounding sports at MTSU, the Big Blue Review covers the latest in athletics.

Around the C-USA

Around the C-USA focuses on two matchups 

within the conference for that week and discusses key stats for both the teams and players. Around the C-USA is similar to the Starting Lineup but goes more in depth  and focuses only on the C-USA. At the end of the segment the hosts present a few more matchups within the conference to keep an eye out for. 

Blue Raider Spotlight puts the focus on a student athlete at MTSU. The feature package compiles a series of interviews and highlights for the player of the week and gives them their share of the spotlight. The feature packages are submitted by student reporters in the school of journalism.

Blue Raider Spotlight
The Scouting Report

Picks of the Week

Every episode of Blue Raider Extra Point ends with the Picks of the Week. This segment is when the hosts discuss who they think will win games this week and their reasons why.
