If you think back a month you’ll recall Marshall was actually in the top 15 and the AP pool and then they took it on the chin as at 24 pt favorite losing to Rice of all teams.
Marshall is 6-1 SU/ATS in bowls under Doc Holliday but with three major players missing RB Knox being the key we don’t see many point on their end and this is probably one of the best D’s Buffalo has faced
all season long so point count be at a premium.
Projected Score: Buffalo 31, Marshall 17
