Marshall vs. Akron Game Preview

Game Time: 12:00 pm
Venue: Joan C. Edwards, Stadium, Huntington, WV
Network: CBS Sports Network
Can the two offenses ramp it up? Akron was held in check by a dominant Wisconsin defense, but the pieces are there to bomb away, while Marshall finally started its season last week by throwing for 313 yards against Morgan State.
Akron’s secondary has had big problems so far allowing VMI and Wisconsin to hit 75% of their throws for 592 yards and five scores with no picks. Last week, Marshall QB Chase Litton connected on 13-of-16 throws for 3-9 yards and six scores – he’ll have no problems pushing the ball all over the field.
Expect the two teams to combine for well over 600 passing yards with lots of fun and lots of bombs, but Marshall will do more at home. The Herd will be fully tuned up for Louisville.
