HUNTINGTON, WV -

The Thundering Herd lost their first game of the season falling 34-30 against Ohio.  

With the record 2-0 start, it marked the best open to a season since 1999.  Now, with one loss, Marshall players aren't going to overreact as they're keeping their season in perspective.

"We look at it like the whole season, we're writing a story, we're writing a book. That was just one little bump, a little adversity. We just need to come back this week and play ball," said senior offensive lineman, Garrett Scott.

"We can't let one game determine us. We can't let one game determine our season. We still got to keep focus, we still got to keep working hard and keep grinding," said junior quarterback, Rakeem Cato.

"It's just a bump in the road. We got to take it from there.  2-1 isn't horrible, but it's not want anyone wants. We want to win every single game, but you just have to go from there and keep going," said redshirt sophomore offensive lineman, Sebastian Johansson.

The Thundering Herd will be back on the road Saturday, Sept. 21 as they take on Virginia Tech at noon on ESPNU.
