Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
Toward the end of the 2013 college football season, the Marshall Thundering Herd and Rice Owls met up in a clash to determine the Conference USA champion.
Marshall entered the game as a six-point favorite, but was demolished by the Owls in the contest, 41-24. Still, the Herd were invited to compete in the Military Bowl, which they won against Maryland, 31-20. They finished the season with a 10-4 overall record.
Fast forward to this July, and while seemingly the rest of Conference USA has been hit relatively hard by the college athlete turnover, Marshall conversely comes in sitting pretty with a core group of players returning for another title shot.
