Talking the business of sports
The Marshall Thundering Herd will be playing 60 minutes on Saturday, but they’re expected to have things wrapped up well before that. They are staying on the road to face off against the Bowling Green Falcons at 5 p.m. ET Sept. 17 at Doyt L. Perry Stadium. The Thundering Herd won’t have the home-field advantage, but they do enjoy a 16.5-point advantage in the spread.
Marshall didn’t have too much breathing room in their matchup with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish last week, but they still walked away with a 26-21 victory. RB Khalan Laborn was the offensive standout of the game for Marshall, rushing for one TD and 163 yards on 31 carries.
Meanwhile, Bowling Green fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels last week but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 59-57. Yes, you read that final score correctly. And yes, they were playing football.
Marshall’s win lifted them to 2-0 while Bowling Green’s loss dropped them down to 0-2. We’ll see if Marshall’s success rolls on or if Bowling Green is able to steal their positive momentum.
