UCF 48, Marshall 25: 5 Thoughts On The Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl

2. Marshall lost a bowl game?!

How big a deal was it that Marshall lost a bowl game?

The program dropped the 1947 Tangerine in a 7-0 thriller against Catawba, and after getting up to the FBS level, it lost a 34-31 fight to Ole Miss in the 1997 Motor City.

After that, the Herd won 12 of its next 13 bowls – only dropping the 2004 Fort Worth to Cincinnati – and was 6-0 under head coach Doc Holliday.

UCF ended that with a thud.

Marshall is still one of the best bowl programs in college football with a 12-4 all-time record.

And with the team that’s returning and where the program is at under Holliday, it’ll almost certainly get a shot at starting a new streak next year.

NEXT: UCF is still amazing
