The line on this game was Marshall -24.

These teams met two years ago with Marshall winning 32-16.

When this game was played most recently in 2018, Marshall pulled off the 32–16 victory at home. Just a mere 89 of the Herd’s 367 total yards of offense were accrued on the ground as Willie Johnson led the team in rushing that day off just two jet sweeps. That being said, to say I expect the dead opposite on Saturday would be a dull and dreary understatement, as the game plan for both teams could be to run the ball into oblivion. Naming a starter with no previous in-game reps or not naming one at all until gameday is essentially the same thing, but luckily both teams have enough veteran leadership and versatile playmakers on both sides of the ball to make this a competitive affair, even in an untimely debut.

The deal-breaker in my eyes rests on Brenden Knox barreling downfield behind his hogs up front, and just how much punch EKU can pack to stop it. The Colonels haven’t notched a win against an FBS opponent since beating Miami (OH) in Week 2 of 2014, so if Marshall finds any sort of groove with pace and time of possession the tempo could start to sway in their favor fairly quickly.

Athlon Sports writes:

While Eastern Kentucky has had close games against FBS opponents, it has only one win since 1985 (Miami of Ohio in 2014). Meanwhile, Marshall hasn't lost to an FCS program since falling to New Hampshire in 2007.

This matchup doesn't have the feel of an upset, especially considering the pandemic has likely hindered teams with new head coaches. The visiting Colonels can't waste opportunities if they are going to have Marshall in trouble in the fourth quarter.
