In a game from NCAAF Week 6, we will see Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders at Marshall Thundering Herd.
The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders could have easily been 1-3 if not for the Tavaras Thomas’ touchdown with just a few seconds remaining on the clock. Brent Stockstill then found Gatlin Casey for the 2-point conversion, giving them the win by 25-24 against FAU. Brent Stockstill has thrown for 982 yards, eight touchdowns, and three interceptions so far in the season.
Marshall improved to 3-1 after defeating Western Kentucky last week. Marshall quarterback Isaiah Green has thrown for 1,108 yards, eight touchdowns, and six interceptions. He has been very dynamic but he is also very unpredictable. His raw talent is visible but his decision making is questionable at times. The leading rusher of the Thundering Herd is Keion Davis with 177 yards and one touchdown, while Tyler King has 170 yards and one touchdown. Tyre Brady leads all receivers for Marshall with 26 receptions for 369 yards and five touchdowns.
Middle Tennessee are 1-7 against the spread in their last 8 away games. Marshall’s offense is showing more life than their opponents’ one and given the fact that they will also be playing under their own turf, I believe that the Thundering will cover the spread.
