HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Rakeem Cato tied a career-high with five touchdown passes as Marshall eviscerated Southern Miss 61-13 on Saturday.
Cato's four scoring throws in the first quarter helped Marshall (5-3, 3-1 Conference USA) open up a 28-0 lead heading into the second.
Nick Mullens connected with Makese Triplett for an 81-yard touchdown pass about midway through the second quarter and Corey Acosta's 39-yard field goal with 3:30 left in the half cut the Southern Miss (0-8, 0-4 C-USA) deficit to 28-10.
Cato, however, led Marshall on a 13-play, 70-yard drive culminating with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Tommy Shuler, his second receiving touchdown of the afternoon, just 2 minutes and three seconds later and the rout was on.
Cato completed 21 of 28 passes for 262 yards.
