The Beef O’Brady’s bowl offers football fans one last chance to see a couple of early first round draft picks as Marshall faces off with Florida International University. Marshall is led by defensive end Vinny Curry who finished second in the nation with 21 tackles for loss. Curry projects to be a first round selection this coming April. He will need to have a big day to keep FIU quarterback Wesley Carroll from getting the ball in the hands of explosive receiver T.Y. Hilton. Hilton also figures to be selected in the drafts early rounds.
