Marshall rallies past FAU, remains unbeaten

Huntington, WV ( – Devon Johnson ran for a school record 272
yards with four touchdowns and No. 23 Marshall survived a scare from upset-
minded Florida Atlantic with a 35-16 win on Saturday.

The Thundering Herd (8-0, 4-0 C-USA), who trailed at halftime for the first
time this season, received three 50-plus yard runs from Johnson to keep their
perfect season alive.

Rakeem Cato extended his NCAA record of consecutive games with one touchdown
pass to 40, but was held in check for most of the day, throwing for 218 yards
on 13-of-24 passing.

Jaquez Johnson threw for 179 yards with one touchdown for the Owls (3-5, 2-2),
who have dropped two of their last three.
