The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Marshall Thundering Herd square off Saturday in a week 2 college football contest at Notre Dame Stadium. The Marshall Thundering Herd look for a 2-0 start after smashing Norfolk State last week. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish need a win after losing their opener to Ohio State.

The Marshall Thundering Herd has won 4 of their last 6 road games. Henry Colombi is completing 92.3 percent of his passes for 205 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception.

The Thundering Herd are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in September. The Fighting Irish are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Thundering Herd last 7 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Fighting Irish last 7 home games.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are capable of blowing the doors off here, and they'll be motivated for a bounce back showing at home after falling apart late against Ohio State. The line is probably accurate. With that said, Marshall isn't a pushover as the Thundering Herd have racked up some nice wins over the years, and they have some high level talent on the offensive side. Marshall has playmakers at receiver, and Colombi is talented enough to where he's 2 other programs signed off on him. Notre Dame should win, but we're getting almost 3 free touchdowns with the road team. Give me the Thundering Herd.
