The Marshall Thundering Herd and James Madison Dukes meet up in Week 8 at Bridgeforth Stadium/Zane Showker Field. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on ESPN+. The Dukes are coming off their first loss of the season and dropped out of the top 25 as they return home on Saturday.
Marshall (3-3, 0-2 Sun Belt) had a few extra days to prepare as the Thundering Herd played on Wednesday last week but lost 23-13 to the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns as Khalan Laborn rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns in the defeat.
James Madison (5-1, 3-1 Sun Belt) won the first five games since it transitioned to FBS competition but fell short last weekend in a 45-38 loss to the Georgia Southern Eagles, as Kyle Vantrease completed 38-of-64 passes for 578 yards with four touchdowns and an interception.
James Madison is a 12.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -435 on the moneyline. That makes Marshall a +350 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 50.5.
