In NCAA Football Week 8, we will see Marshall at Florida Atlantic.
The Marshall Thundering Herd are 3-32 on the season and they are just coming off a 31-17 win over Old Dominion. The team is in the middle of the pack both offensively and defensively and it is mainly relying on the run to give them points- ranked 32nd in rushing. Brenden Knox is the leading rusher with 499 yards on the ground for 5 touchdowns. QB Isaiah Green is completing just 57.2% of his throws for 1171 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions.
On the other side, we have the Florida Atlantic Owls. They started the season with two losses against ranked sides but they have been perfect since then. The Owls managed to beat the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, 28-13 in a game where RB Malcolm Davidson finished the game with 149 yards on 21 carries for 1 touchdown. QB Chris Robinson completed just 50% of his passes for 145 yards and 1 touchdown.
It is clear that Florida Atlantic has a much better defense than Marshall. They also have a better passing game and I believe that they will crush them through the air. The Owls also managed to stop the run effectively in the last two games they played.
