Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Marshall Thundering Herd vs Rice Owls 11/02/2019 – The Marshall Thundering Herd and the Rice Owls collide this weekend in a battle of Conference USA teams. Football game betting favors the Thundering Herd to prevail over the Owls. Marshall is coming off a win over Western Kentucky in a thriller of a match. The Rice Owls, on the other hand, continue to struggle. They are coming off a loss to Southern Mississippi although they did put up some good defense. That tenacity could help them even out the odds, especially against Justin Rohrwasser.

Marshall Thundering Herd
The Marshall Thundering Herd are looking to bag another win following that last thriller against Western Kentucky. They are aiming for a fourth straight win which will also allow them to win the East Division crown and compete in the C-USA championship. Isaiah Green will continue to give Marshal a dual-threat option. He has thrown for 1,607 yards and 11 touchdowns and ran for as many as 95 yards against Middle Tennessee. They also need to ensure that their defense holds up. Tasked to do that is Darius Hodge who accounted for six of the C-USA best 29 sacks. Out to help him are Omari Cobb and Tavante Beckett.
Players to watch I. Green QB 134 CMP 228 ATT 1,607 YDS 58.8 CMP% 7 AVG 75 LNG 11 TD 6 INT; B. Knox RB 137 ATT 803 YDS 5.9 AVG 43 LNG; S. Evans RB 51 ATT 289 YDS 5.7 AVG 21 LNG; A. Levias TE 32 REC 346 YDS 10.8 AVG 75 LNG; B. Thompson WR 15 REC 289 YDS 19.3 AVG 54 LNG
The Rice Owls came close to getting their first win against UTSA but still fell short. It could be a different story against the Herd but a lot needs to be done. Wiley Green has yet to break out for the Owls with a good passing game but it appears it may not materialize this Saturday. For him to shine, Green’s teammates need to help out. Running back Aston Walter could be that guy but is questionable. He is still nursing a shoulder injury and missed their last game against Southern Mississippi.
