Did you know: Carthage has not lost a regular-season game since Oct. 7, 2016 when it fell to Kilgore on the road. Last year’s matchup between these two teams was the first regular-season battle since the two schools went head-to-head in 1981.

Twitter-sized preview: The Mavericks have a tough task in front of them as the Bulldogs are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. Don’t be surprised to see Marshall look to run the ball and drain the clock in order to keep the Carthage offense off the field.
