Marshall Cruises to Win Over UTSA

Posted:

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Rakeem Cato threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns and Marshall's defense intercepted three passes in a 34-10 victory over UTSA on Saturday.

Marshall (3-2, 1-0 Conference USA) had no turnovers on the day and the Thundering Herd capitalized on the costly mistakes of UTSA, allowing them to go ahead 17-0 in the first quarter. Cato was 22-for 32 passing, with touchdown passes to Demetrius Evans and Devon Johnson.

UTSA's (2-4, 1-1) Eric Soza had two interceptions in the first quarter that set up Marshall's first 10 points of the game. The Roadrunners were down 27-3 when Soza scored on a 1-yard run, their only touchdown.

A.J. Leggett's third quarter interception was the ninth for Marshall this season, matching its mark for all of the 2012 season.

Marshall's defense held UTSA to 254 total yards and limited them to 16 first downs.
