Marshall vs Louisiana
QB Levi Lewis, Louisiana: His head coach might be gone, but the fifth-year senior for the Sun Belt title champs, knows how to run this attack without any help. He didn’t run a whole lot – 269 yards and five scores – but he was efficient with 19 touchdown passes and just four picks. He keeps everything moving.
DT Zi’Yon Hill, Louisiana: The fifth-year senior is more than just a 6-1 278-pound anchor for the veteran line, he produces in the backfield. He’ll hold his own against the run and be fine against the run with 56 tackles, and he pushed for 6.5 sacks snd 9.5 tackles for loss.
QB Grant Wells, Marshall: Which Wells is Marshall going to get? He’s not a runner, but he scored seven times on the ground. He threw 12 interceptions, but he was careful over the back end of the year and finished with 16 touchdown passes and 3,436 yards. If he’s on, and isn’t throwing picks, Marshall is dangerous.
LB Abraham Beauplan, Marshall: After showing promise in 2020, he took his game up a few notches as the team’s leading tackler who also turned into a disruptive force at times. He might be a tad undersized at 6-2 and 223 pounds, but he can fly with a great burst into the backfield.
