HUNTINGTON - It was one of the best efforts of the season for the Thundering Herd but, much like the season, the result was a disappointment for Marshall and its fans. Tulsa and the Herd traded punches throughout the game that came down to a 22-yard field goal by Tulsa's Jarod Tracy with just 3:42 to play to give the Golden Hurricane a hard-fought 38-35 win over MU.

It's a rare doubleheader for Thundering Herd fans on Saturday, November 29. Well, maybe not so rare, as the Marshall men's and women's basketball teams also have a doubleheader on Tuesday, Dec. 2, at 4 p.m. for the ladies (vs. UT-Arlington) and 7:30 p.m. for the gentlemen (against ETSU). But first, Saturday, ODU will face Donnie Jones' team at 11:30 a.m., followed by football vs. TU at 3:30 p.m.

Marshall was written off for dead after a stunning loss at UAB. But the Herd rallied and beat Houston, 37-23, at home in a game that wasn't that close. Although the Herd fell to East Carolina in a game that went overtime, 19-16, Marshall can still obtain a number of goals. With two wins in the next three games, the Herd will be bowl eligible for on a Conference USA's six bowls, or win out for 7-5.
