On the spot
Marshall offensive line: Giving up nine sacks - five against Texas-San Antonio - is unacceptable. Rushing for 82 yards on 37 carries after three quarters is unacceptable. The flip side there: That line dominated the fourth quarter, indicating excellent conditioning on a stuffy afternoon.
Rakeem Cato and Tommy Shuler, MU quarterback and slot receiver: Surprisingly, they connected just five times against Texas-San Antonio.
Jaquez Johnson, FAU quarterback: The first question after his career-best game (404 total yards) against Alabama-Birmingham is how his shoulder feels. The second question is how well he will decipher Marshall's much-improved defense, which may spring a new wrinkle on any play.
All MU players from south Florida: Do they play their best game of the year, or make mistakes trying to impress their friends and family?
