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.

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.
Sep 11 - 10:35 AM

Marshall redshirt junior WR Tyre Brady caught 11 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 37-20 loss to NC State.

Brady, a transfer from Miami in the winter of 2016, eclipsed the entirety of his collegiate production in this one game alone. His touchdown grab against NC State was of the long variety, as he scored from 75 yards out midway through the second quarter. The 6-foot-3, 204-pounder averaged a sweet 22.5 yards per reception in the contest. Despite this fine work, Marshall just wasn't able to keep up with NC State on the scoreboard when all was said and done. Brady will try for an encore performance when the Thundering Herd take on Kent State in Week 3.
Sep 9 - 9:45 PM

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton completed 20-of-30 passes for 208 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 31-26 win over Miami (OH).

Litton hooked up with Tyre Brady for a 22-yard score midway through the second quarter, but otherwise was kept out of the touchdown column in the box score. Marshall's offense accounted for just 10 points in the win. The other 21 came on a pair of kick-return touchdowns and a pick-six. A trip to NC State awaits the Thundering Herd next Saturday as they look to get their offense going.
Sep 2 - 10:28 PM

Marshall junior RB Trey Rodriguez will start on Saturday in the Thundering Herd's opener against Miami (Ohio).

Rodriguez (5'10/189) beat out Keion Davis for the top spot. A transfer from Arizona Western Community College, Rodriguez is more known for his quickness than his strength, so you shouldn't expect a traditional between-the-tackles runner. His speed should allow him to get on the edge, however, and he could be a factor in Marshall's passing game.
Aug 30 - 7:12 PM

Marshall junior RB Trey Rodriguez has been taking first-team reps in camp.

Rodriguez (5'10/189) has been splitting first-team work with fellow running back Keion Davis. "Keion is a little different than Trey, and Trey is a little bit different than Tyler King, so they all bring something different to the table,' said RB coach Pepe Pearson. "And you like to see that." Rodriguez, who joined the Thundering Herd out of the JUCO ranks this offseason, is a rusher whom The Herald-Dispatch's Chuck Landon refers to as "a slashing running back."
Aug 11 - 5:59 PM

Former Texas redshirt sophomore WR Kai Locksley transferred to Marshall in May.

He'll sit out the 2017 season. The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder began his career as a four-star dual-threat quarterback at Texas. He failed to beat out freshman Shane Buechele last summer, ultimately leading to a position shift to receiver and then a relocation to Huntington.
Aug 2 - 2:07 PM

Marshall redshirt senior RB Keion Davis was the Herd's only healthy scholarship running back over the spring.

Luckily, the Herd's injured backs will be back next month. Davis led Marshall in rushing with 469 yards (4.2 ypa) last year, adding six touchdowns on the ground. He missed the last three games with injury. Marshall's entire offense went into the tank last season; we see better things coming for them this time around.
Jul 8 - 1:26 PM

Marshall defensive coordinator Chuck Heater praised JUCO transfer sophomore CB Kereon Merrell.

"He's got a good skill set and he's done a good job coming in new," Heater said. "Coming in new, it's always hard in the middle of winter, but he adapted to that and did a good job of battling through it." The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Merrell had 26 tackles, six pass breakups and two interceptions at Dodge City Community College last year. Marshall returns starting cornerbacks Rodney Allen and Chris Jackson, but Merrell should be no worse than a rotational defender if he can't unseat one of them.
Jun 14 - 5:06 PM

Oklahoma State sophomore WR Obi Obialo transferred to Marshall.

The best part about Obialo having walked-on at OSU? He's immediately eligible to play in 2017. A three-star prospect as a junior in high school in 2014, Obialo's stock cratered following a serious leg injury. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder caught two passes for 11 yards as a freshman and had a touchdown catch in this year’s spring game.
