OXFORD, Ohio -- Rakeem Cato threw three touchdowns- all in the first half- and ran for one more to lead Marshall to a 42-27 victory over Miami (Ohio) in a season opener on Saturday.
Cato threw an 11-yard pass to Eric Frohnapfel for the first score and racked up 124-passing yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter. A 1-yard TD pass to Frohnapfel -- set up by Devon Johnson's 55-yard run -- at the start of the second put the Thundering Herd up 21-0.
Johnson ran for 151 yards and two touchdowns.
Cato now has 33 consecutive games with a TD pass, just five shy of the NCAA record currently held by Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.
