You probably have to go back about seven years to find the talent and depth that FIU currently features in its offensive backfield.

In 2010 the Panthers had a rugged lead back in Darriet Perry, who set the program record with 16 rushing touchdowns that year. Darrian Mallary was the quick, shifty back that averaged nearly six yards per carry. Jeremiah Harden provided the pop running the ball and then-freshman Kedrick Rhodes was a combination of all the backs. Not to mention FIU handed off the ball 30 times to a speedster named T.Y. Hilton that season. The same T.Y. Hilton that led the NFL in receiving last year.

To no surprise the 2010 Panthers established FIU single-season program rushing records that still stand to this day.

Fast forward to 2017 and FIU is employing a quartet of backs with diverse talents that has fueled a 4-2 start. The four backs are on pace to rush for the second most yards in program history and have the second most rush yards per game in FIU history.

FIU is back on the gridiron Saturday when the Panthers take on one of the top teams in Conference USA this season: Marshall. The Thundering Herd is 6-1 after a forgettable 3-9 season last year.

Marshall has one of the best defenses in the conference, led by a front seven that is second in C-USA with 22 sacks. Marshall has the top scoring defense and the No. 2 total defense in the league.

Offensively, the Herd has a balanced attack with a pair of good running backs and a sound, veteran quarterback leading an efficient passing game.

FIU is 1-4 against Marshall all-time with the lone win coming last year at FIU Stadium. For more on the Herd, here is Grant Traylor, the Marshall beat writer for the Huntington Herald Dispatch, to answer 5 Questions on Marshall. You can follow Grant on Twitter for all Marshall things: @GrantTraylor.

Just an FYI. Marshall's Stadium is named Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

Best of luck to FIU after Saturday. Go Herd.

I'm currently in Huntington. Weather forecast for tomorrow is 43 and 100% chance of rain at kickoff... Wonder what effect this may have on the game. Could make getting anything going ofensively that much harder
