I read the Underdog Dynasty article. Im definitely pulling for The Herd to go 12-0 and eventually 13-0 after CUSA title game. Would love to see how they can do in a big bowl game against an SEC team.

With today's win, Marshall is officially bowl eligible (no surprise there).

They were also 22nd in the CBS Sports poll as well. Great to see!

22. Marshall (NR). Welcome to the top 25, Herd! No, you haven't beaten anyone of substance, but you have beaten the ever-loving tar out of teams of non-substance, with Middle Tennessee State this week's victim.

#21 in USATODAY 1-128. Not sure how they justify the positions of teams, but it's the highest that I've seen them.
