Asmussen's Top 50: No. 42 Marshall

Asmussen's Top 50: No. 42 Marshall

Bob Asmussen counts down his top 50 college football teams this upcoming season.

No. 42: Marshall

Coach: Doc Holliday

2013 record: 10-4

Projected 2014 record: 11-1

Circle the date: Sept. 13 vs. Ohio

Why No. 42: Led by quarterback Rakeem Cato, there is a great chance the Thundering Herd will go undefeated, The Conference USA competition is weak and Marshall doesn’t play the second-best team in the league, North Texas. Get past Ohio and Marshall fans will be screaming for a berth in a big bowl. Holliday’s offense is prolific, but the defense is talented too. Somewhere, Randy Moss is nodding his head in agreement.
