As for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, they knocked off North Texas 49-14.
Kick off is set for 7:00 PM EST Friday night.
For a team that wasn’t expected to do much and that hasn’t done much in the recent years, is silencing a lot of critics as they enter this clash with Marshall.
Southern Miss sits at 3-2 and continues to dominate on the both sides of the ball as they try to pull off another conference win this week.
Golden Eagles backers have also loved this team as they are 5-0 ATS this year. They easily covered the number last week in their 49-14 route of North Texas.
Southern Miss racked up 573 yards of total offense and really were doing whatever they wanted when they wanted too. QB Nick Mullens led the way as he finished with 325 yards to go along with 4 touchdowns on 27 of 36 passing.
Southern Miss also combined for 190 yards of rushing on just 25 carries as Justice Hayes and Ito Smith both found the end zone once.
Known for their offensive juggernaut ways, the Marshall Thundering Herd are actually winning games thanks in large part to their defense. Marshall held Old Dominion to just 7 points last week in their 27-7 win.
Through the opening 45 minutes of the game, Marshall was limiting the Monarchs to just 117 yards of total offense. Old Dominion found the sticks just 6 times in that span.
Overall, the defense is allowing just 19.0 points per game and that number shrinks to just 15.0 at home.
QB Chase Litton comes in off a game that saw him throw for 212 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 21 of 35 throwing.
RB Tony Pittman led the rushing attack as he finished with 127 yards on 32 carries with a touchdown.
