MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Travon Van scored on a 19-yard run with 6:10 left and Marshall overcame five turnovers, rallying for a 23-22 win against Memphis Thursday night.

Both teams now have just one game left in the regular season but Marshall (5-6, 3-3 Conference USA) played most of this contest like an early season practice, losing three fumbles and two interceptions.

Frank Trotter picked up one fumble, running it back 18 yards to put Memphis (2-9, 1-5) up 22-10 with 11:22 remaining in the game.

But Andre Booker returned the ensuing kickoff 64 yards, setting up Tron Martinez, who rushed for 93 yards, on his only touchdown from 21 yards out on the next play to bring Marshall within five points 21 seconds later.

Martinez then rushed for 28 yards on Marshall's next possession, setting up Van for the game-winner.

Marshall's defense held Memphis on downs in each of its final two possessions.
