MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall would like to have something worth bragging about in its series against No. 11 West Virginia.
Marshall is 0-11 all-time against the Mountaineers, losing six straight since play between the state's only Bowl Subdivision teams resumed in 2006.
With the series coming to an end for the foreseeable future, there's still one chance left for Marshall on Saturday, and that has West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen worried. He says Marshall will be highly motivated and dangerous.
The schools aren't scheduled to play each other after this year and the Friends of Coal Bowl could be shelved for quite some time.
Marshall coach Doc Holliday would like to see the series continue.
