Marshall Sports Information


Huntington, W. Va. | Sept. 25, 1971

In the first home game after a 1970 plane crash that killed 36 players, the coaches and other members of the Marshall football family, Thundering Herd quarterback Reggie Oliver throws a 13-yard screen to Terry Gardner for a touchdown on the game's final play. Marshall stunned Xavier, 15-13. If it sounds like a Hollywood ending, then you must have seen the 2006 movie.
