This was probably the biggest "Here, you take the win ... no, you take the win..." game of the week. Marshall had quite a few opportunities to stick in the dagger but turned the ball over three times in Tech territory ... and Tech missed three field goals. Sacks ... turnovers ... special teams errors ... passing downs disasters ... this game had it all, I guess. And almost none of it was any fun to watch.
