There is nobody on the gridiron I am pulling for more on Saturday than Senior RB Keith Marshall. Two years ago, QB Aaron Murray threw what I still consider as a “hospital, check-down pass” to Marshall. That poor throw resulted in Keith Marshall tearing his ACL in Week 5 of 2013, derailing his sophomore and junior campaigns with the Georgia Bulldogs.

Marshall returns to his house of horrors in Neyland Stadium, where the grass cares as much about your sinew as Joan Jett does about her Bad Reputation. Does Keith Marshall have the mental fortitude to perform on the same stage that nearly ruined his football career?

Look for Keith Marshall to get the last laugh against Neyland Stadium on Saturday. Should the game be on the line late, look for OC Brian Schottenheimer to call Marshall’s number to put it in the end zone on a goal line situation. Nothing would make me happier to see Keith Marshall win the game for the Dawgs with a fourth quarter touchdown run, hopefully to put the game out of reach for UT.
