Marshall improved to 8-3 overall and 6-1 in Conference USA with a 48-10 win against FIU. Now, they face an East Carolina team that stands atop of the East Division with the Thundering Herd at 6-1 as well. A win against the Pirates would set up a Conference USA Championship Game the following week. It would be the first time since entering the conference that Marshall will play in the championship game.
