The Marshall Thundering Herd have several reasons for being upset this week as they not only lost a bowl game last night, but the team was enraged over a dirty cheap shot to one of their players.
As Willie Johnson called for a fair catch on a punt early in the fourth quarter, he found himself being decked by Jayrin Wilson head on, which left him injured on the field and needing medical attention.
Wilson was penalized 15 yards and got ejected for targeting.
Full play and reactions:
Louisiana ended up winning the New Orleans Bowl 36-21 to finish 13-1 overall for this season.
Quarterback Levi Lewis finished with 270 yards and one touchdown pass while the run game had three touchdowns.
With the loss, Marshall finishes its season at 7-6.
