Grant Traylor's game balls
Cato finished the game 22 of 34 passing for 253 yards and five touchdowns while also making the right reads of the Miami defense to get the Herd running game churning.
Holmes finished with eight tackles, including three tackles for loss and a sack to lead a Marshall defense that allowed just 55 yards and zero points in the second half.
Curraj doubled Marshall’s touchback output from 2012 in just one game, blasting six kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks. It gave the Herd a distinct field position advantage.
