We have reached week five of the college football season and most teams are now in the conference portion of their schedule.
But this weekend there is still a few games that are non conference and that is the case in this one.
The Marshall Thundering Herd make the trip to Cincinnati to take on the Bearcats. This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2008 when the Bearcats won 33-10.
Marshall Thundering Herd
The Marshall Thundering Herd have had a nice season so far coming into this game with a 2-1 record, but they have covered the spread in all three games.
The only game they lost was against NC State. They were 21 point underdogs in that game but only lost by 17 points.
In their last game they played Kent State, a really bad team and was probably a good warm up for this weekend winning by a final score of 21-0.
Marshall is led by quarterback Chase Litton who has been a bit inconsistent at times. He comes into this game having thrown for 781 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.
To win this game the Thundering Herd are going to need to get a lot of production from the offense. They have struggled at times getting things rolling offensively and that can’t happen in this game if they want to pull the big upset.
On the other side of this match up is the Cincinnati Bearcats who come into this game having a really up and down season so far this year.
They come into this game with a 2-2 and also 2-2 against the spread. They come into this game off a loss against Navy, although they didn’t even play that bad offensively.
The struggles for the Bearcats all came on the defensive side of the ball. They couldn’t slow down the run and they let Midshipmen run up 42 points on them.
To win this game it all comes down to the defensive side of the ball. They can’t let the Thundering Herd march up and down the field or it could be a long afternoon.
