On the spot
Corey Tindal, Marshall nickel back: He has started nine times in the Herd's base 4-2-5, and he's going to have to come up larger than ever today. Can he or someone else slow down inside receiver Justin Hardy, and keep him from being isolated against linebackers?
Rakeem Cato, Marshall quarterback: He has made up three second-half deficits in conference play, and he did it in last year's ECU game. Somewhere along the line, he's going to have to prove that he's "The Man," the one who was named the league's MVP a year ago.
