Middle Tennessee State University is an American university located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Middle Tennessee State University's colors are Royal Blue and White.

Nickname

Its nickname is the Blue Raiders. Female teams are known as the Lady Raiders. The nickname's origin goes back to a 1934 newspaper contest. An MTSU football player, Charles Sarver, won $5 from The (Murfreesboro) Daily News Journal with his winning entry "Blue Raiders", which he later admitted borrowing from Colgate University, whose teams were known as "Red Raiders" at the time. No official nickname existed prior to 1934, when teams were called "Normalites," "Teachers," and "Pedagogues". Contrary to popular belief, the "Blue Raiders" nickname is not related to the American Civil War, in which Union soldiers, wearing blue, raided Murfreesboro in 1863 on their way to the Battle of Stones River.
