Marshall cornerback Tiquan Lang had a huge game in a win over Purdue.
The star of the game was cornerback Tiquan Lang, who propelled the Thundering Herd to victory. Lang recorded 17 tackles and two interceptions, both of which he returned for a touchdown.
Boilermakers quarterback Austin Appleby had a game to forget, throwing four interceptions in 48 pass attempts.
It was the first home win for Marshall over a major conference team since 2005. And it wouldn't have been possible without Lang.
He started the game with a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown on the game's first play. Then, with Purdue driving down only a field goal, Lang sealed the win for the Thundering Herd with a 55-yard pick-six with just over a minute remaining.
