While the Mountaineers played in their 11 straight bowl game, their in-state rival to the southwest sat at home.

Marshall missed out on punching its ticket to a bowl game after losing to ECU at the end of November.

But the Thundering Herd made its bed earlier in the season.

After bad losses to Tulsa, UCF, Ohio and UAB put the Herd in playing catch up all season.

Injuries also played a major role in Marshall's struggles this season and so did its lack of experience.

But all of that is behind them, except for that taste of missing out on a bowl game.

That's something the Herd doesn't want to happen next year.
