LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Rakeem Cato's 4-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Crawford put Marshall ahead with less than two minutes left in the fourth quarter and the Thundering Herd held on to beat Louisville 17-13 on Saturday.
Omar Brown helped seal the victory with an interception of Teddy Bridgewater's pass on the second play of the ensuing drive. The ball was tipped in the air by teammate Darryl Roberts and Brown dove forward along the sideline, cradling the ball against his chest before it reached the ground.
The game-winning touchdown drive was set up by another fourth quarter interception of Bridgewater, making his first collegiate start for Louisville. Bridgewater scrambled on a third-and-9 from his own 20 and fired to Josh Bellamy along the Louisville sideline. Bellamy wrestled with Marshall's Tyson Gale for the ball along the Louisville sideline with Gale emerging with it at the Louisville 30-yard line.
