Marshall (7-3) vs. FIU (8-3) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
If FIU wins, it takes East title and plays UAB for the Conference USA championship. If Marshall wins Middle Tennessee gets in.
The Thundering Herd have won two in a row and four of the last five games thanks to a defense that continues to be among the beat in the league – ie allowed 13 points or fewer in three of the last four games.
FIU is on a roll offensively, coming up with 87 points in the last two games and 36 or more in four of the last five.
The Golden Panthers are the best in the league on third downs thanks to an efficient passing game that doesn’t screw up. The defense is solid, but it’s been the play of QB James Morgan and the O that has the team on the verge of playing for the conference title.
And they’ll get it done.
Marshall’s run defense has been a killer, and the defense is great at taking the ball away, but in a tough battle that will be played down to the Herd’s level, FIU will be a +1 in turnover margin and will move the chains just a wee bit more than the Herd in the fourth quarter.
