The bowl season kicks off on Saturday, four games on tap.
On December 27, Marshall takes on Maryland in the Military Bowl.
You ask, why are we talking about Marshall? Here at WCTV we don't forget our local heroes of the gridiron.
Rickard's Monterius Lovett is a big reason Marshall is in the postseason.
He has 28 tackles and two interceptions. You're watching one of them right now. Thundering Herd looking to upset the Terps.
"Do our job, be in the right position like we are suppose to, do a great job covering. We are a man-to-man team, do a great job with their guys containing their quarterback,he will make plays. Got to bring pressure," Lovett said.
Lovett not the only local player on the Marshall roster.
Jermaine Holmes, a former star at Valdosta has 82 Tackles, 2 Sacks.
Tiquan Lang, a Lowndes alum has 33 Tackles, 1 Interception.
Jarquez Samuel , another former Valdosta star has 24 tackles, 5 Quarterback hurries.
These players on defense are a big reason why Marshall is 9-4, 7-1 in Conference USA.
