We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Joan C. Edwards Stadium in Huntington, West Virginia. The Miami of Ohio Redhawks make the trip to take on the Marshall Thundering Herd.
The Thundering Herd have won the last three games played between the two teams.
Miami (Ohio) Redhawks
The Miami Redhawks got out to a terrible start last year, and it really hurt their chances to feel really good about what they accomplished last year.
They came out of the gates losing the first six games, before ratting off six straight wins and making a bowl game. This year this team needs to get out to a better start because they can’t expect a second half surge like last year.
The strength of the offense this year is the quarterback position. Gus Ragland had an explosive second half last year, just like the rest of the team and they are expecting big things out of him this year.
The strength of this team is still the defense though. They finished 25th in the country in total defense, and they expect to be up around the same area again this year.
Nine starters are back from last year team and they are going to lean on them for success.
To win this game the offense needs to be good. They can’t get out to the slow start they did last year or it could be a long game.
Marshall Thundering Herd
Last year the Marshall Thundering Herd really struggled going 3-9 and having one of the worst seasons in recent memory.
The offense really struggled last year and a lot of that had to do with the offensive line. Opposing defenses were gashing them last year and it led to a lot of quarterback pressures and sacks.
They have brought in some new guys along that line to try and sure it up, but they are going to need to step up quickly, especially against the good defense of the Redhawks.
On the defensive side of the ball they weren’t much better. They couldn’t get off the field on third down and it really hurt any chance they had of having success.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Redhawks ML
The Redhawks are the better team and will show it from early on in the game. I think that they will get out to an early start and then the defense will really shut them down.
