HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Ricky Santos threw three touchdowns passes and ran for a fourth score, leading New Hampshire to a 48-35 win over Marshall on Saturday.
New Hampshire (1-1), ranked No. 12 in the Championship Subdivision poll, jumped ahead 24-0 at halftime, withstood a furious Marshall comeback and won its third straight game against a Bowl Subdivision team, beating Rutgers in 2004 and Northwestern last season.
The Thundering Herd (0-3) lost to a Championship Subdivision team for the first time since rejoining the former Division I-A in 1997.
Marshall was unable to contain a spread offense for the second straight week. Santos completed 23 of 33 passes for 289 yards.
Marshall led No. 4 West Virginia 13-6 at halftime a week ago but the Thundering Herd surrendered 42 second-half points and lost 48-23.
This week, New Hampshire caught Marshall in an early lull.
Robert Simpson had first quarter TDs on a 10-yard run and a 27-yard pass from Santos, who added a 3-yard TD run in the second quarter.
Marshall's Bernard Morris, who hurt a toe last week, didn't enter Saturday's game until the final drive of the first half. He set career highs by going 31-of-42 for 417 yards and three TDs.
Morris' 25-yard TD toss to Darius Passmore on fourth-and-17 brought Marshall within 41-35 midway through the fourth quarter, but New Hampshire used up most of the clock in going the length of the field, with Chris Ward scoring on a short run with a minute left.
