The Herd’s goal to hoist the Conference-USA Championship trophy begins Saturday against Middle Tennessee to kick off conference play.
“We’re trying to start off 1-0 and come together as a team,” redshirt sophomore running back Brenden Knox said. “Conference play brings out the best in people and everything we want to achieve as a team is ahead of us.”
Marshall is coming off a tough loss of 52-14 against the Cincinnati Bearcats at the Joan C. Edwards Stadium in front of 32,000 fans.
The Herd (2-2) can treat the out of conference matchups as learning experiences to face in conference foes.
