HUNTINGTON, W. Va. -- Darius Marshall rushed for 186 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown run, to lead Marshall to a 17-10 win over Bowling Green on Saturday night.

The Thundering Herd (2-1) trailed 7-0 at halftime after Bowling Green's Chris Wright caught a 50-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Sheehan, who completed 43-of-62 passes for 383 yards.

But Marshall answered with 17 straight points and never fell behind again. Brian Anderson connected with Antavio Wilson on an 11-yard touchdown, Marshall scored on his long run and Craig Ratanamorn made a 31-yard field goal.
