Marshall game captains for Old Dominion, as selected by Doc Holliday and staff, are receiver Justin Hunt, running back Tony Pittman, cornerback Rodney Allen and defensive end Ryan Bee.

Marshall had a shakeup along the offensive line, as Sandley Jean-Felix started at left tackle, Clint Van Horn slid from right tackle to right guard, and Fedrice Binot moved from left tackle to right tackle. Van Horn started the first eight games at right tackle and Binot the first eight games at left tackle. It was Jean-Felix’s first start of the season, but 14th of his career. Van Horn now holds the team lead for career starts with 34, surpassing the 33 by Michael Selby, who is out for the season with an injury.

Herd sophomore linebacker Frankie Hernandez received his first career start on defense. Hernandez started in place of Chase Hancock, who had started the first eight games.

True freshman Brandon Rodgers returned a kickoff 35 yards in the first quarter, his first career kick return. He later added a 44-yard kickoff return – a career long.

MU tight end Ryan Yurachek caught a 21-yard pass from Chase Litton in the first quarter, extending Yurachek’s streak of consecutive games with a reception to 28.

Quarterback Chase Litton connected with Yurachek for a 5-yard touchdown in the first quarter, which extended Litton’s consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 19.

Rodney Allen’s forced fumble in the third quarter was his fourth this season. The rest of the Marshall defense has four combined.

Defensive tackle Nyquan Harris had a career-high in tackles with eight. His previous high was seven.
