Marshall University is a public, nonprofit university founded in Huntington, Virginia in 1837. Marshall University Stadium, home to the university's football and basketball teams, opened in September 2014. The stadium opened its doors to the public on 14 September 2014 and is the largest football stadium in North America with a capacity of more than 3,000 people.
The Thundering Herd team won a school-record 34 games in 2016 with just 21 losses and advanced to the semifinals of the C-USA tournament before becoming eventual champions. Southern Miss. In addition to 13 bowl games and a 10-3 record, which is the second-best record in school history and the best mark in the Mountain West Conference, they have won four conference championships and two regular-season titles in the Conference.
Holliday returned to Marshall University in 2012 after serving as head coach of a school - a record for 139 games. He then led Marshall to a 10-4 season, which culminated in a victory in the Military Bowl in 2013.
Marshall beat East Carolina in 2013 and celebrated Holliday's first win in the Military Bowl since his first game as head coach. Marshall won the Division I AA championship in 1992 and 1996 and advanced to all sports in 1997. Marshall has played and won five national championships and amassed the most wins of any team in a country since 1990, despite many relegations in the division In the 1990s, Marshall was a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which assembled some of the nation's most successful teams.
The rivalry series will return in 2019 and 2020, when Marshall and Ohio play at home - and - against each other, first in Marshall, then in Ohio. Personally, I think there's a Buckeyes team that will pull together, but tonight against a superior Marshall team, there's a lot of pressure on both sides of the ball, especially on the offensive line and defense.
