Middle Tennessee State has been red hot this season, winning nine of its first 10 games, including victories over Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. The Blue Raiders are No. 7 in the (albeit early) RPI right now. This is not some middling Conference USA squad wandering into the Siegel Center Saturday. This is a potential conference champion capable of springing multiple upsets in March. Will Wade is acutely aware of these facts, and he’s determined to have VCU ready at 7 p.m. on Saturday. While Middle Tennessee State isn’t a name brand, this is a game where the Rams are going to need a raucous crowd behind them. We hope to see all of you Saturday with your ears pinned back, ready to wreak some fan havoc.

While most student-athletes graduate spring semester, there are a few that participate in the fall semester ceremonies. VCU Athletics didn’t want them to feel left out, so the department makes sure to honor this group of graduates each year.
