Marshall Welcomes Tulsa For Homecoming

Posted: Updated:
HUNTINGTON -

After losing a tough one to Purdue on the road, Marshall returns home this Saturday to face Tulsa in their homecoming game. The Golden Hurricanes were picked as one of the top teams in Conference USA and they are living up to it, sporting a 4 and 1 mark. According to Thundering Herd head coach Doc Holliday, a big reason for their success is their quarterback Cody Green.

"Offensively when you look at them their quarterback Cody Green was a starter at Nebraska as a true freshman so you know he's got ability." said Holliday, "I think he's only one of two starters, other than Tommie Frazier, to start at Nebraska as a true freshman. But he did that for several games and he's picked up right where he left off at Tulsa."

Kick off is set for 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
