HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Tyler Tettleton threw for 200 yards and three touchdowns to help Ohio rally and beat Marshall 27-24 Saturday night.

Tettleton, who completed 20 of 35 passes, moved into Ohio's all-time, top five for career passing completions.

With the game tied 24-all with 5 minutes remaining, Rakeem Cato completed a 9-yard pass to Antavious Wilson. However, Wilson fumbled and the Bobcats recovered at their own 21.

From there, Beau Blankenship ran four straight times to drain the clock and Matt Weller converted a 38-yard field goal with 1:37 left to play.

Marshall (1-2) had a chance to rally, driving from its own 25 to the Ohio 27, but Jelani Woseley intercepted a Cato pass to seal the win.

Cato led Marshall with 432 yards and three touchdowns on 44-of-65 passing.

The win marks the Bobcats' first 2-0 start on the road since 1976 and second consecutive season with a 3-0 start.
