1. Marshall showed up in a bowl game. Again.
Well look at ol’ Doc Holliday getting this thing done.
Utah has turned into the current standard for bowl game excellence winning 14 of the last 15 games including the last five. But Marshall is keeping up the pace with its seventh straight bowl win and its 12th in the last 13 bowl games.
The program’s last bowl loss was to Ohio in the 2009 Little Caesars Pizza, and that’s been it since dropping the 1997 Motor City against Ole Miss.
Holliday remains perfect. He might have missed out on getting the program to a bowl game in a few years, but this win makes is six-for-six, and it’s the fourth by double-digits.
His teams get up for these games, they play well, and now it’s more than just a coincidence that Marshall is one of college football’s best post-season teams.
