That's good to hear. I figure they will take the Heart of Dallas Bowl and face an SEC foe. Maybe against Florida.

The Charleston Daily-Mail cite ESPN for the information that Marshall will play Northern Illinois in the Boca Raton Bowl on Dec 23 at 6:00 PM.

Haven't seen any packages yet but I'm sure they'll be available soon. Noticed today the The Herd finished the season essentially ranked #28 in the AP poll. The team they are facing, NIU, finished ranked #32 and Yahoo sports listed this bowl game as the 10th best matchup.

Yep. The Herd fell off of all of the top 25 lists. ESPN lists for December 7:

Good luck to Marshall in the bowl game! If WV can somehow go 2 for 2 in the bowl games that says a lot for a little state like ours!

The Herd received several CUSA accolades:

The Amtrak train to Boca Raton the weekend before the Bowl Game is already sold out. Shows the possibilities that could be achieved with a better train station.
