Marshall Comes from Behind Defeats La. Tech

Updated 2 years ago

Facing  slippery, wet weather, the Marshall Thundering Herd came from behind and defeated Louisiana Tech 26-23 for the Conference USA championship.  Four field goals kept Marshall close as the Tech defense and turnovers kept the Herd from additional Red Zone opportunities.

Rakeem Cato completed a five yard pass to Deon-Tay McManus with 1:50 remaining in the game and the Herd trailing 23-19.  This is the Marshall football team's first Conference USA championship. They finish 12-1, with last weeks 67-66 loss to Western Kentucky costing them a perfect season and a spot in the Top 25.
