Without Tyler King, the first-string running back released last week, the Herd was able to make the game a running battle by racking up 309 total rushing yards. The Bobcats ran for 223 total rushing yards.
“I was thankful, and I just did my job,” redshirt running back Sheldon Evans said. “My offensive line was so good, and I just ran behind them.”
The game started off fast for Marshall as they hit the game running with a 26-yard touchdown by redshirt junior Xavier Gaines within the first three minutes of the game. The Bobcats answered back quickly with a 44-yard field goal by redshirt senior Louie Zervos.
