We have reached week six of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a conference USA showdown when the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders make the trip to Joan C. Edwards Stadium to take on the Marshall Thundering Herd.
The Thundering Herd have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders
The Middle Tennessee State Bule Raiders have had an up and down season but they come into this game off a really big win.
They took on FAU in the last game and it was an up and down battle all afternoon but in the end they came out ahead 25-24.
The Blue Raiders are led by quarterback Brent Stockstill who comes into this game having thrown for 971 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions.
What the team does the rest of the season will probably fall on Stockstill and how far he can carry this offense.
On the defensive side of the ball the Blue Raiders have been bad. They are currently giving up 36.2 points per game.
In this game the Blue Raiders need to slow down the pace of play, and make it so the Thundering Herd’s offensive possessions are limited.
Marshall Thundering Herd
On the other side of this matchup is the Marshall Thundering Herd who have had a really nice season and the only loss came against NC State.
The Thundering Herd in years past have been known as a great offensive team but this year it’s not as much about how well the offense has played.
They come into this game averaging 26.8 points per game and they are going to need to probably score more than that to win this game.
If they can run up the score in this game and the defense can step up big late, that is going to be the best chance for this team.
