Week 14 of the college football season is filled with conference championships, but not all games are that way and that is the case in this one.
It’s a non-conference showdown when the Marshall Thundering Herd make the trip to Blacksburg to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies.
These teams have played five times so far with the Hokies winning all five games.
Marshall Thundering Herd
The Marshall Thundering Herd have had a nice season so far this year and really should get a good bowl game, especially with a win in this game.
For the Thundering Herd they are a decent defensive team but their real strength is on the defensive side of the ball.
They have won three games in a row and in those games they have given up 25, 0, and 13 points respectively. On the offensive side the Thundering Herd are led at quarterback by Isaiah Green who has thrown for 1840 yards, 14 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.
To win this game the Thundering Herd need the defense to be strong early. If the defense can flex their muscles early they should have a good chance for a victory, and that end the Hokies season.
The one thing the team can’t do is fall behind early. If they fall behind it’s going to be really hard to come back, especially on the road.
Virginia Tech Hokies
On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Tech Hokies who needed a win in their last game to even get a chance to win this game.
The Hokies haven’t had a good season but a big reason is that they lost their starting quarterback early in the season.
In has stepped Ryan Willis who has played decent this year throwing this year for 2185 yards, 18 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.
The one thing he doesn’t have is the legs that Josh Jackson has. In this game they need to get out to a fast start and Willis needs to play well.
If he struggles and turning the ball over, their season could be finished after this game.
