He specifically brought up Middle Tennessee as a possible opponent for the neutral site game."For example, Middle Tennessee," Pearl told "We're going to be involved in a 2-for-1 involving Middle Tennessee but it's going to be a neutral site Birmingham, neutral site Nashville and then a home game at Auburn."Middle Tennessee finished 24-9 last season and in a tie for the Conference USA regular season championship.
