    Why Marshall Will Win

    The Blue Raiders aren’t the same team they were a month ago, when they nearly beat Illinois and Vanderbilt. Middle Tennessee is banged up, and was hammered in October by Western Kentucky and La Tech. The Herd’s league-best D, which has all-star performers at each level, will maul a depleted Blue Raider O-line.

    Why Middle Tennessee Will Win

    Last week’s bye could not have come at a better time for the Blue Raiders who are approaching full strength again. MTSU has been a much stronger team in Murfreesboro this season, going 3-1, and its D will get a break against a Herd offense that’s been just average this fall.

    What’s Going To Happen?

    If Marshall is going to stumble before meeting Western Kentucky on Nov. 27, this would be place it’ll happen. Despite its struggles, Middle Tennessee remains talented and tough at home. The Blue Raiders will hang with the Herd into the second half before faltering to a terrific defense yielding an average of just 12 points over the last five games.
