Marshall's Darius Hodge was in the Old Dominion backfield so much that he knew what flavor of chewing gum the quarterback was using. The redshirt sophomore had 4 1/2 sacks in the game and was honored by Conference USA by being named Defensive Player Of The Week. He also had 7 tackles. His efforts also helped the Herd tie a school record for total number of sacks in a game with 8. Hodge's 4 1/2 sacks is good for second also in Marshall history and is a tie for third in CUSA all time.
Marshall has a short week as they travel to FAU for a big conference game as the Owls so far are 2-0 while the Herd is 1-1.
