Marshall redshirt freshman RB Tyler King rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in Saturday's 30-23 win over Western Kentucky.

Lovely workmanlike performance from King. He scored from 10 yards out early in the third quarter to account for his singular touchdown on the evening. This was the 5-foot-11, 190-pounder's third 100-yard performance this season and his seventh game of at least 70 yards rushing.
Nov 11 - 10:29 PM

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton completed 17-of-28 passes for 190 yards and an interception in Saturday's 30-23 win over Western Kentucky.

Litton had thrown at least two touchdown passes in five of his last six games prior to getting blanked on that front in Saturday's win. The 6-foot-6, 232-pound junior has racked up 2,356 passing yards with an 18/10 TD/INT ratio in 10 games this season. Marshall will tango with UTSA and Southern Miss over the next two weekends to close out the regular season.

Marshall senior TE Ryan Yuracheck caught three passes for 37 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-25 loss to Florida Atlantic on Friday.

Yurachek (6'3/240) didn't get many targets, but he was still able to find the end zone twice. The first was a five-yarder from Thundering Herd quarterback Chase Litton at the top of the third quarter to make it 16-10 FAU, and his second score was a diving effort from 15 yards to pull within a touchdown at 30-23 with just five minutes left. Yurachek is one of the better senior tight ends in the FBS this year, and could be a mid-round draft pick. Marshall gets Western Kentucky next week.
Nov 3 - 9:39 PM

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton completed 20-of-39 passes for 253 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions in a 30-25 loss to Florida Atlantic on Friday.

With those four picks, Litton (6'6/232) has now thrown six interceptions in his last two games. In the previous four games, he didn't turn the ball over. There's a bit of an excuse on the last two picks as he was throwing a wet ball, but his decision making and accuracy was poor tonight against a beatable Owls' secondary. Litton will look to rebound next week against Western Kentucky.
Nov 3 - 9:30 PM

Marshall redshirt junior WR Tyre Brady caught nine passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-30 loss to FIU.

The 6-foot-3, 204-pound redshirt junior surpassed 100 yards receiving for the first time since going off for an 11-248-1 line in the loss to NC State in September. In sum, he boasts a 47-694-7 receiving line through eight games played. The 6-2 Herd face a stiff test next time out at FAU.

Marshall redshirt junior DE Ryan Bee "offers a good amount of growth potential and should develop into a solid 4-3 end at the next level," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

The Herd have Bee playing out of position at nose tackle, but the 6-foot-7, 280-pounder has responded with 32 tackles, 4.5 TFL and 4.5 sacks. "Bee is long, athletic and plays smart, tough football," Pauline wrote. "He works hard to make the tackle or, at the very least, stays with gap assignments so teammates can flock to the ball carrier."
Oct 24 - 2:56 PM

Marshall redshirt freshman RB Tyler King rushed for 129 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 38-10 win over Middle Tennessee.

King (5'11/190) scored from 15 yards out just four minutes into the game to open the scoring and book-ended matters with a one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. While the redshirt freshman is not a lock for triple-digit rushing yardage on a week-in, week-out basis, he has proven to be quite the consistent cat this season, surpassing 70 yards rushing in four of the last five games.
Oct 20 - 11:23 PM

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton completed 16-of-24 passes for 168 yards in Friday's 38-10 win over Middle Tennessee.

The Thundering Herd turned in a dominant defensive performance, here, limiting MTSU to just 273 total yards. As such, Litton was not needed for a superhero performance. For the year as a whole, the 6-foot-6, 207-pounder has passed for 1,550 yards with a 13/3 TD/INT ratio across seven games played.
Oct 20 - 11:11 PM

Marshall redshirt junior WR Tyre Brady caught five passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 35-3 win over Old Dominion.

Brady caught a little two-yard touchdown in the first quarter, then came back around to score from 46 yards out in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-3, 204-pound redshirt junior is up to a sturdy 34-571-6 receiving line through six games played.
Oct 14 - 5:40 PM

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton completed 12-of-23 passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 35-3 win over Old Dominion.

Litton tossed two of his three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to help Marshall salt away the easy victory. Nine of his 13 aerial scores this season have come over the last three games. He'll try to keep his hand hot when Marshall tangos with Middle Tennessee next Friday.
Oct 14 - 5:36 PM

Marshall redshirt junior WR Tyre Brady caught six passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 14-3 win over Charlotte.

In what was an offensive struggle by both teams, Brady came through with both of Marshall's touchdowns. The 6-foot-3, 204-pound redshirt junior logged his first scoring grab from 37 yards out in the first quarter and later notched an 11-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter. These were Brady's first trips to the end zone since the second week of the season.
Oct 7 - 10:05 PM

Marshall senior TE Ryan Yurachek caught six passes for 77 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-21 victory over Cincinnati on Saturday.

Their the first three touchdowns for the 6-foot-3, 240-pound Yurachek, which is a surprise considering he had 14 touchdowns combined the last two years. Cincinnati was simply incapable of covering the tight end in the red zone, or anywhere else. The talented tight end could -- and probably should -- score again when the Thundering Herd take on Charlotte next week.
Sep 30 - 11:09 PM

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton threw four touchdown passes and for 233 yards on 21-for-33 passing in a 38-21 victory over Cincinnati on Saturday.

Litton (6'6/232) has struggled with efficiency this year, but that wasn't the case against the Bearcats. He was (mostly) accurate and on time with the football, and he found a mismatch by hitting tight end Ryan Yurachek for three scores. The other touchdown was to 27-yard strike to Willie Johnson. Litton and Marshall get a tasty matchup with Charlotte next week.
Sep 30 - 11:05 PM

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton completed 23-of-43 passes for 223 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 21-0 win over Kent State.

Litton wasn't particularly efficient in the contest, but the Thundering Herd really didn't need him to post big numbers against an offensively-incapable Kent State squad. The junior signal-caller has passed for 781 yards with a 3/3 TD/INT ratio through three games. We expect him to pick up the pace as we get deeper into the season -- Litton posted a 24/9 TD/INT ratio in 10 games during the past campaign.
Sep 16 - 10:18 PM

Marshall redshirt junior DL Nyquan Harris was arrested on Saturday for obstructing an officer.

Police responded to a domestic call and Harris apparently slammed the door in their face. Harris has been sidelined for the school's opening two games due to injury.
