Marshall's 59-24 over Southern Miss. on Saturday was just what the team needed after that heartbreaking loss to Tulsa two weeks ago.

The Thundering Herd had a week off to prepare for the Golden Eagles and that preparation paid off.

Marshall's offense continued to stay red hot.

The Herd racked up 629 yards of total offense.

Quarterback Rakeem Cato threw for more than 300 yards for the 6th time this season.

Marshall Head Coach Doc Holliday told the media today in his weekly press conference that Saturday's win really started out last Tuesday in one of the best practices to date.
