Apparently, it doesn’t even have to take a minute of actual game time.
Marshall and Western Kentucky had themselves a little scuffle right at midfield during warmups. Offsetting personal foul flags were tossed into the air. I’m sure that’ll ensure a calm and gentlemanly contest for 60 minutes. Considering the two teams are only a couple-hundred miles apart, this could be an entertaining feud in coming years.
I saw Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky in the press box earlier. We’ll see him here next week, too. The conference hasn’t announced it, but looking at the tiebreakers, there’s no reason the Herd won’t host either Louisiana Tech or Rice in the C-USA title game next week. Whether a “New Year’s Six” Bowl will be in play in that game will be decided today.
As I’ve said elsewhere, this WKU team is the spitting image of the 2012 Marshall team — scores a ton of points, gives up a ton of points. So I’ll figure there will be scoring, but Marshall will tally more than WKU. Not much else to be said here. Stick around below for some live discussion. Otherwise …
Happy Regular Season Finale, y’all.
