MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Former Florida State Head Coach Bobby Bowden was in town today and spoke with the Blue Raider football team prior to practice. Coach Bowden came at the request of one of his former quarterbacks - Middle Tennessee Head Coach Rick Stockstill. 

A standing room only crowd met in the Gameday Room prior to today's workout as Coach Bowden addressed the team for about 15 minutes. Bowden gave a very inspirational talk and shared some old stories with all the players. 

At the conclusion, he shook hands, took some photos, and spend a couple extra minutes with Stockstill and his father before taking off for a speaking engagement in Nashville. 

The Blue Raiders are preparing for Saturday's SBC opener against FAU. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 PM at Floyd Stadium.
