Marshall vs Florida Atlantic Game Preview
Why Marshall Will Win
Well there we go.
Marshall is on a three-game winning streak with the running game kicking it all in against FIU, the passing game rolling against North Texas, and with the turnovers not quite as bad after losing to Middle Tennessee with six giveaways.
Florida Atlantic’s offense is too inconsistent. The offensive line allows too many plays behind the line, the running game hasn’t been able to do enough against anyone but the mediocre, and now it deals with a Marshall D that generates a whole lot of pressure.
Why Florida Atlantic Will Win
Which offense will show up?
When it’s balanced and the ground game is rocking, Florida Atlantic wins. When it gets stuffed, it has a problem.
It’s 4-0 when getting to close to 200 yards on the ground – and it beat UTEP last week even though it struggled to do anything offensively. Marshall stuffed FIU, but gave up over 200 rushing yards in four straight games before last week.
The defense has been great at taking the ball away over the last few games, it’s +2 on the year in turnover margin, and it only had real issues with turnovers once, going -3 in the loss to UAB.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s the battle for the Conference USA East title … for now, at least until WKU has more to say about it.
Both teams have been wildly inconsistent and both have a ton of problems, but Marshall’s offense will be stronger on the road to overcome a rough day by the run D.
