In a little more than 3 weeks, Marshall will tip off the season at home vs. Longwood University.

There's a few new thing you'll notice with this year's Herd team.

 For one, Marshall is sporting new uniforms that they unveiled last week during media day.
 

And two, the Herd welcomes in seven new players, including Charleston native and Ohio University transfer TyQuane Goard.

But while Marshall has many new faces, the green and white brings back three senior starters.

Mix that experience with the influx of new talent and you might just have a recipe for a successful season.

Thundering Herd Head Coach Tom Herrion is  excited to have new blood  this year and is happy to have a much deeper roster.
