Marshall 35 - UCF 28 In a battle of the CUSA titans, Marshall prevailed behind a stellar performance from Sophomore QB AJ Graham. After finding himself on the bench, coach Battle put Graham back in the starting lineup again to see if he had regained his shaken confidence that saw him taken out of multiple games this season for ball control issues. Being in charge of the fastest offense on two feet, Graham didn't disappoint, racking up 229 yards, 2 scores and a pick, and 115 yards on the ground, averaging a meaty 10.4 yards per carry, and 2 scores on the ground. Starting running back and team captain Martin Ward added an additional 70 yards on the ground with a 5.3 yards per carry average and a score on the ground. Star WR Antavious Wilson picked up 114 yards through the air and 2 scores. All American Halfback Brynn Harvey lived up to his reputation as a beast from the east, rushing for 199 yards on 7.6 yards per carry, and 3 scores. The Marshall d-line had no answer for Harvey as he ran in the middle, up the gut, and any which way he wanted. Fortunately for Marshall, UCF QB Rob Calabrese couldn't take care of the football, finding the Marshall D for 3 interceptions, and no passes. Yet again turnovers were the name of the game, and the team with fewer prevailed.
