They got a lot of guys back from a year ago that their defense led the conference. Their quarterback, Jaquez Johnson, he is a pain in the neck. He can run it, he can throw it, and I am sounding like a broken record because it seems like we get that type of thing every week. He is a hard guy to tackle and get on the ground. </p> 'Rock 'n' Jock' show GRANT TRAYLOR 2014-10-25T08:32:19-04:00 <p> Marshall University plays at home today against FAU.

Leaders: Passing, Driphus Jackson 1,185 yards, 11 TDs; Rushing, Jowan Davis 517 yards, 2 TDs; Receiving, Mario Hull 14-265, 3 TDs. </p> Grant Traylor: 5 Points to ponder The Herald-Dispatch 2014-10-24T23:39:30-04:00 <p>While many will say it is quarterback Jaquez Johnson because of his ability to be a dual threat as a quarterback, the best player on the field for the Owls will be wide receiver/return specialist Lucky Whitehead. Last week, Whitehead was brilliant with the football in his hands, catching eight passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns. He won the game for FAU when he took a screen pass in the final two minutes and raced 61 yards for a score to give the Owls their first lead of the game. He's lightning in a bottle, and he'll be going against thunder in the Herd's defense on Saturday. </p> Butler back to old self GRANT TRAYLOR 2014-10-24T00:24:13-04:00 <p> HUNTINGTON -- Often times, injuries don&#39;t only affect a player physically.</p>
