Forget the fact that it is the top two scoring offenses in Conference USA. Those units don't go head-to-head against each other. Instead, focus in on the most fun matchup to see: Marshall's top-ranked defense against Western Kentucky's high-powered offense.

"The great thing about this week, and I know the fan base is excited too, is getting the chance to honor 19 seniors. All of those 19 seniors are responsible for getting this program back to where our fan base wanted it -- us winning championships. A lot of those seniors getting honored are going to go down as legends; a lot of those players -- the (Rakeem) Catos, the (Neville) Hewitts, the (Jermaine) Holmes', the (Tommy) Shulers, the (Chris) Jasperses, a lot more of them -- will go down as some of the best players to ever play here."
