Marshall Thundering Herd Football Bowl History

Ten bowls in 17 years shows the consistency of the Marshall football program since joining the ranks of Division I-A/FBS in 1997. The Herd hit the ground running, avoiding the slow start many prgrams see in their early days of moving to the next level and won five straight bowl games in as many years from 1998-2002. The 2001 GMAC Bowl 64-61 win over East Carolina remains the highest-scoring in a bowl game to this day.
