Nashville, Tenn. – The Tennessee State football team was picked No. 21 in Athlon Sports’ annual Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Preseason Top 25 poll.

The Tigers are coming off of their best season since 2001 and their 8-3 record included wins over Eastern Kentucky, Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M.

Big Blue also returns 20 starters including All-American cornerback Steven Godbolt III, who led the Ohio Valley Conference’s top-ranked pass defense last year, and fellow All-American tight end A.C. Leonard who was pivotal for the nation’s 25th best passing unit.

The only other OVC team to crack the list was Eastern Illinois, coming in at No. 20.

The Tigers will square off against the Panthers on Oct. 26 in Nashville at LP Field for TSU’s Homecoming.
