The athletes of Tennessee State are still finding a way to compete with each other despite the stoppage of intercollegiate athletics by the NCAA due to Covid-19. The Tigers are competing in a TSU ran game show known as Tiger Facts.

Each week four contestants face off to see who can figure out the most facts about their fellow Big Blue athletes.  The game show has allowed fans, as well as the competitors; learn more interesting details about the participants.

Football player Josh Trueheart participated in the first episode and has remained on serving as the host for the show.

Who has been swimming with sharks?
Who played in the Little League World Series?
Who is skilled in Ballroom Dancing?
Who has flown a helicopter?
