What a game on Saturday in Houston. Two overtimes, 105 combined points, but most importantly a Marshall win over Rice. The Herd exploded for 593 yards of total offense. Freshman running backs Steward Butler and Kevin Grooms accounted for five touchdowns. Big, big win. That's in the past. Up next Purdue. Coach Doc Holliday says, bring on the Boilermakers.

"It's obvious we have an excellent challenge this week. We're back on the road facing a Purdue team that many people have picked to be involved in that Big 10 Championship." said Holliday, "They're a much improved football team from a year ago and if you look at them the thing that really stands out to them is their defense. I mean they're allowing 293 yards a game total defense and their front four they got a couple of guys in there that are probably first or second round draft picks."

Kick off is set for noon Saturday.
