Against the Hurricane defense, UAB and Marshall combined for 740 passing yards and completed 69 percent of their attempts. The UTEP passing game is below average: 203 yards per game, with nearly as many interceptions (seven) as TDs (eight). TU's coaches should expect a shutdown performance from the Hurricane secondary.
