On the spot
Marshall offensive linemen Garrett Scott, Sebastian Johansson, Chris Jasperse, Alex Schooler and Clint Van Horn: They are the "iron five," and they pretty much pulled their weight a week-plus ago at Middle Tennessee. Bonus stat: Jasperse leads the team with 36.5 knockdowns.
Khyri Thornton, Southern Miss nose tackle: This gentleman will play on Sundays next year, if he doesn't break down from having to carry this defense. Close your eyes and recall Dontari Poe, the current Kansas City Chiefs lineman who had to anchor a horrendous Memphis defense, and you'll get the idea.
