The Marshall Thundering Herd and the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders will meet up on the college football circuit Saturday. 

Marshall enters this one at 2-2 overall. The Herd have victories against Ohio 33-31 and VMI 56-17 but have otherwise fallen to Boise State 14-7 and Cincinnati 52-14.

In the Bearcats loss, Marshall QB Isaiah Green had 131 yards passing, while Brenden Knox posted 49 yards rushing. Knox also led the receivers there with 50 yards on four catches. 

Over on the Middle Tennessee side, they’re 1-3 this season. The Raiders took a win over TN State in Week 2 but have dropped to Michigan, Duke and Iowa otherwise. 

In the 48-3 loss to Iowa, Middle Tennessee QB Asher O’Hara posted 110 yards passing and led the rush with 33 yards. Jarrin Pierce was the top Raiders receiver on 43 yards from six grabs. 

The Herd are 2-6 ATS in their last eight overall and 1-5 in their last six road games versus a team with a losing home record. Marshall is 1-5 ATS in their last six after a straight-up loss of more than 20 points and the over is 4-0 in their last four after a straight-up loss. 

Meanwhile, the Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last five conference games and 1-4 in their last five after an ATS loss. MTU is 1-5 ATS in their last six overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five after a straight-up loss of more than 20 points. 

Marshall is a little puzzling this year, as they’ve looked very competitive in their first three games, but didn’t get much going at all against Cincinnati. MTU is in something of the same boat, as they’ve scored just 21 points over their last two outings but started out fairly strong.

All things considered here I feel like Marshall has this one in control.
