Tennessee State Tigers (3-0)


Despite losing starting QB, Tennessee State poised to remain undefeated

(STATS) - Tennessee State is off to the program's best start in four years, but if that success is to continue it must come with a new - yet familiar - face under center.

With sophomore starter O'Shay Ackerman-Carter done for the season because of a knee injury, senior Ronald Butler takes over the reigns of the offense Saturday as the Tigers (3-0) open Ohio Valley Conference play against visiting UT Martin.

Ackerman-Carter threw for 598 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions before he was injured in the first half of a 31-24 victory at Bethune-Cookman on Sept. 17. The Tigers conveniently had their bye last week so were able to put plenty of time into preparing for life with a new signal-caller.
