Marshall (5-2) vs. Southern Miss (3-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
This is what we call the old desperation time for Southern Miss.
The offense was fine a times, but the wins came against a slew of bad teams. And now, after losing to Charlotte and with a trip to UAB up next, lose this week at home, and there’s a big, big problem.
Marshall came up with its best performance of the season in a blowout win over Southern Miss, and it now has real, live Conference USA championship possibilities if it can keep it all going.
The Southern Miss downfield passing game isn’t showing up, and the offensive line has a problem, but the problems are all stemming from a horrible turnover margin.
The defense is doing a nice job of getting off the field, and the team isn’t committing a lot of penalties, but the O has given it up 19 times on the year and two or more times in every game but the win over Rice.
Marshall leads the league in takeaways. That will be enough to get by on the road against a team that has to pull this off.
