Marshall University’s football team will line up opposite conference foe University of North Texas Saturday in its Homecoming game.

The Herd (6-1) enters the game coming off a 33-17 victory in Boca Raton, Florida over Florida Atlantic University.

The Mean Green (0-6), named after North Texas alum and NFL Hall-of-Famer “Mean” Joe Greene, suffered its latest loss at the hands of Western Kentucky University, 55-28.

The week before, North Texas, which is ranked last in Conference USA in scoring offense (17.0 PPG) and scoring defense (50.2 PPG), lost 66-7 to Portland State University in what was the biggest margin of victory by an FCS team over an FBS Subdivision team in NCAA history.

Despite the Mean Green’s season, Marshall head coach Doc Holliday said every team can be beat.

“Every time you pick up the paper on Sunday, somebody gets beat that shouldn’t,” Holliday said Tuesday during his press conference. “You just got to make sure it’s not you. We treat every week like a championship game, and we prepare like the way we always prepare.”

The Herd has won 15 of its last 16 regular season conference games.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at Joan C. Edwards Stadium with television coverage provided locally by Root Sports.
