Rohrwasser kicks 53-yard FG, lifts Marshall over WKU 26-23
Sat Oct 26, 2019 6:23 PM

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) Justin Rohrwasser kicked a 53-yard field goal as time expired and Marshall held off Western Kentucky's late rally for 26-23 victory on Saturday.

Rohrwasser made two field goals in the second quarter, and his 43-yarder stretched the Thundering Herd's lead to 23-7 midway through the third. But Western Kentucky (5-3, 4-1 Conference USA) scored on its next three possessions with long drives, capped by Gaej Walker's 16-yard run that tied the game 23-23 with 6:19 to play.

Marshall (5-3, 3-1) had possession with 1:21 remaining when Isaiah Green began a 10-play, 51-yard drive that set up Rohrwasser's game-winning kick.

Green was 20-of-31 passing for 230 yards and threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score. Brenden Knox added 84 yards rushing on 19 carries for the Thundering Herd.

Ty Storey was 31 of 43 for 292 yards passing and had a touchdown run for Western Kentucky. Walker ran for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Lucky Jackson caught 16 passes for 168 yards.
