Herd from Holliday

UAB is a much improved football team. They have put up over 500 yards of total offense against Mississippi State, played extremely well and right up to the wire. They have done that a lot throughout the year. They have a receiver, (J.J.) Nelson, who is probably the fastest guy in our conference. I think he had 220 return yards against Louisiana Tech, which is a good team. They have a running back (Jordan) Howard, who will be the most physical running back that we have played all year. It will be a great challenge for us on the road.

Herd heads to the Legion of Doom

Grant Traylor: Head2Head

Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato continues to excel with decision-making and taking care of the football. The last time he was at Legion Field, he didn't play well and he wants to make amends for that loss. UAB quarterback Cody Clements leads Conference USA in completion percentage, but also has a tendency to throw interceptions.

Grant Traylor: 5 points to ponder

How Marshall handles the crowd will dictate how the game goes. At most venues, you have to worry about the opposing crowd being an intimidating environment or too loud for the offense to get its signals. Such is not the case at UAB's Legion Field, where the capacity is over 70,000 thousand, but the crowd is more like 7,000. The last time that Marshall visited Legion Field, it left with a disappointing loss as the team didn't have its focus and didn't treat the scenario as a game. UAB left with a 38-31 win that, in the end, kept the Herd out of a bowl game after finishing the season at 5-7 in 2012. The Herd needs to come out fast and take care of business because UAB has shown that, when allowed to stay in a game, they can push anyone to the limit.
