Associated Press

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Brian Anderson threw three touchdown passes, all in the second half, as Marshall rallied to beat Memphis 28-13 Saturday for its first three-game winning streak since 2006.

The Thundering Herd (4-6, 3-3 Conference USA) overcame a 10-0 halftime deficit.

Troy Evans started the scoring with a 13-yard touchdown run with 9:05 to go in the third quarter. After Tigers quarterback Ryan Williams fumbled a snap, Marshall took over on the Memphis 24, setting up Anderson's 6-yard scoring pass to Courtney Edmonson.

Anderson, who was 20 for 28 for 251 yards, also threw a 32-yard TD to Lee Smith early in the fourth.

Paulo Henriques kicked a 45-yard field goal to make it 21-13, then Anderson found Evans for a 62-yard touchdown.

Marshall held the Tigers (1-9, 0-6) to 241 total yards, 77 in the second half.

Jermaine McKenzie had six catches for 109 yards for Memphis.
