The Marshall Thundering Herd will hit the road for the first time this season as they travel to Bowling Green, Kentucky to take on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers on Saturday Night at 7:30. The Herd will try to remain unbeaten on the year, while the Hilltoppers are looking for their second consecutive win.
Marshall Thundering Herd
The Thundering Herd has been very good to start the season and even got a win over a top 25 opponent in the AP Polls. The last time out they took down Appalachian State 17-7 who was ranked #23 in the nation.
Marshall may have themselves a future draft pick on their hands with freshman QB Grant Wells. Wells has done really well offensively and is fitting in perfectly in Doc Holliday’s attack. He has completed 27 of 48 pass attempts for 470 yards to go along with four touchdowns and one interception. Wells also has a rushing touchdown to his credit.
As a team, the Herd is averaging 254 passing yards and 249 rushing yards per game.
Defensively, Marshall has been very solid and has only let up one touchdown in eight quarters of football. They have yet to be tested though on the season and the Hilltoppers could be a real threat on the offensive side of the ball.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
Western Kentucky accomplished their first win of the season over Middle Tennessee State to snap their two-game losing streak. This week they will try to put an end to another streak as the Thundering Herd are going for their third consecutive win. The Hilltoppers are winless in their last three matchups with Marshall but have covered the spread each of the time.
Senior transfer Tyrrell Pigrome has been the starter for the Hilltoppers through the first three games. Pigrome has played well for WKU but isn’t getting any help from his defense. He has completed 49 of 84 passes for 510 yards to go with five touchdowns.
The most impressive stat that Tyrrell has on his sheet is the fact he has yet to turn the ball over. Turnovers were a reason why he got limited playing time at Maryland but it seems things are going better in Kentucky.
The Hilltoppers haven’t played well defensively, giving up 27.3 points per game. They gave up 17 points in their last game and will need a comparable performance if they want to beat Grant Wells and Marshall.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Pick:
I think Marshall covers this game easily as they are the far better team. Grant Wells is going to be a name you hear around college football a lot over the next few years. Wells has all the tools a five-star QB possess, he just needs the playmakers on the other side of the ball. Marshall is 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against the Hilltoppers, but are 4-3 in their last seven straight up. I like the Thundering Herd to flex their muscles a bit and put up some points on this Hilltoppers team as they have given them trouble in the past.
