MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The Marshall Thundering Herd continues to build off an impressive weekend. 

Yesterday, the Herd defeated No. 23 Appalachian State, which was Marshall’s first win over an AP ranked opponent since 2003. Today, the Thundering Herd moved into the No. 25 spot in the latest Associated Poll (AP) ranking. Marshall is the only Conference USA team listed in the latest rankings.

The Herd are ranked in the Top 25 for the first time since 2014. That season, Marshall reached as high as No. 18. The Herd would finish that season 13-1, including a Conference USA title.

As of today, Marshall is not expected to play until October 10. The Herd will travel to take on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers in a conference showdown.
