Maryland struggled mightily to defeat Delaware in its opener, so you knew things weren't going to get any easier Saturday when the Terrapins traveled to Murfreesboro, home of the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders.
Fear the Turtle? They rolled out the welcome mat. Among the out-of-towners taking in the festivities was reader Greg, who sent in several shots of the party scene.
Middle Tennessee rolled to a 24-14 victory, yet another embarrassment for the Atlantic Coast Conference this young season.

Blue covered everything, from light posts to fans.

Several Maryland fans made the trip, including this one who had his cell phone in one hand and camera in the other.
Middle Tennessee's mascot is a blue winged horse named "Lightning."
