Week two games kick off on Friday as the Marshall Thundering Herd travel to the famous blue field to take on the Boise State Broncos.
This will be the first meeting between these two teams since 1994.
Marshall Thundering Herd
The Thundering Herd put on an offensive show, beating VMI 56-17. They will now look for their first upset of the season against the Broncos.
Marshall racked up a total of 620 in their week one game.
They had 340 passing yards and 280 rushing yards. Isaiah Green led the way in passing, throwing for 238 yards, 4 touchdowns an one interception. As for the rushing game, they were led by Tyler King. King rushed for 75 yards, but only carried the ball 10 times.
As a team, they had 4 different guys who ran for 40+ yards, showing that they like to get all their play-makers involved. Same goes with the receivers.
Corey Gammage was the leading receiver, and had 82 yards with a touchdown. As of right now, Marshall ranks as the 6th highest scoring team in the country.
Defensively, Marshall was able to effectively shut down VMI. They allowed 257 total yards. Only 56 of these yards came on the ground, while the other 201 were through the passing game. They ended up allowing just 17 points which will be a focal point to beating the Broncos.
Marshall was not really tested in their first game, so it is hard to believe they will have the same success against Boise State.
Boise State Broncos
Boise State was involved in one of the better games last week. Not necessarily because of who they played, but more so how the game ended. The Broncos took on Florida State in a game that was moved to Tallahassee due to the Hurricane.
The Broncos fell behind early and were down 31-13 late in the second quarter. They then proceeded to score the next 23 points in a row, picking up a 36-31 win.
The Broncos totaled 621 total yards in the game against the Seminoles. Hank Bachmeier led the way, throwing for 407 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. They also ran the ball 57 times for 214 yards. Robert Mahone was the leading rusher with 142 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Defensively, the Broncos got shredded in the first half. However, they looked like a completely different team in the second half. They allowed a total of 426 yards. They were hurt through the air the most, allowing 327 yards.
On the ground, they allowed just 99 yards. If the Broncos can tighten up their secondary play, they will have a great chance to win this game.
Most impressively, the Broncos held Florida State to 1 of 12 on third downs. This is good for just 8%. On the other side, the Broncos went 10 of 19 on third downs for 53%. This was a big reason why they were able to outplay the Seminoles in the second half and make the comeback that they did.

I really love Boise State in this game. The second half Boise State played against the Seminoles is what I expect them to do in the full game against Marshall. I look for the Broncos to win by 2 or 3 scores and to start the season 2-0.
