Outrushing the Herd would continue a two-year trend, but Marshall isn't lacking in its ground game. Dared by pass-oriented defenses, the Herd has rushed for 528 yards on 96 carries - the latter number dwarfing the 72 passes.
A repeat performance by Venham stands to keep MU's Devon "Moo Moo" Smith from breaking off a big return.
All this poses the questions: How much can Ohio improve from Week 2 to Week 3?
Or will the Herd send the Bobcats into regression?
