Marshall cruises to a 34-10 victory over UTSA
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Rakeem Cato threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns and Marshall's defense intercepted three passes in a 34-10 victory over UTSA on Saturday.
Marshall (3-2, 1-0 Conference USA) had no turnovers on the day and the Thundering Herd capitalized on the costly mistakes of UTSA, allowing them to go ahead 17-0 in the first quarter. Cato was 22-for 32 passing, with touchdown passes to Demetrius Evans and Devon Johnson.
UTSA's (2-4, 1-1) Eric Soza had two interceptions in the first quarter that set up Marshall's first 10 points of the game. The Roadrunners were down 27-3 when Soza scored on a 1-yard run, their only touchdown.
A.J. Leggett's third quarter interception was the ninth for Marshall this season, matching its mark for all of the 2012 season.
Marshall's defense held UTSA to 254 total yards and limited them to 16 first downs.
Mayfield throws for 368, No. 20 Texas Tech rolls
DOUG TUCKER, Associated Press
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Freshman sensation Baker Mayfield passed for 368 yards but was helped off the field with an apparent leg injury in the third quarter of No. 20 Texas Tech's 54-16 victory over Kansas on Saturday.
Mayfield, a true freshman walk-on who has started every game, was hurt at the end of the third quarter when tackled while passing. There was no penalty. He hobbled very slowly off the field with someone helping him under each arm.
He was 33 of 51 with one interception.
After falling behind in the first quarter 10-0, the unbeaten Red Raiders reeled off 54 straight points, going to 5-0 (2-0 Big 12) under first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury for the first time since 2008.
It's the 22nd straight Big 12 loss by Kansas (2-2, 0-1), a span which coach Charlie Weis made a point of telling everybody all week would encompass 1,063 days by Saturday.
