Game Day

It's that time again.

West Virginia University (1-1) hosts N.C. State (2-0) at noon Saturday in Milan Puskar Stadium while Marshall University (1-1) hosts Ohio University (1-1) at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

Quarterbacks — Ohio: Nathan Rourke has proven his mettle over the last few years as a dual-threat quarterback for the Bobcats. The one thing that stands out about Rourke is his efficiency. He simply does not make mistakes. Rourke also can hurt you with his feet, having thrown for 5,000 yards while rushing for just under 1,800 yards in his career. Marshall's Isaiah Green looks to get back on track after a tough performance in Boise.

HUNTINGTON — Before the first World War ever took place or before the Titanic was even a thought, Marshall and Ohio met in battle on the football field. The inaugural game took place in 1905 with Marshall earning a 6-5 win over the Bobcats in Huntington. Fast forward 114 years later and everything about the game has changed — rules, protective gear, schemes — everything.
