CINCINNATI, Ohio — Chase Litton threw four touchdowns passes, three of which went to tight end Ryan Yurachek, and Marshall rolled to a wire-to-wire 38-21 victory over host Cincinnati on Saturday night in a non-conference football contest at historic Nippert Stadium.
The Thundering Herd (3-1) snapped a three-game losing skid against the Bearcats (2-3) while earning the program’s first win in Cincinnati since 1938.
Yurachek hauled in a pair of first half scores from Litton, and Willie Johnson also caught a TD in the second canto, as helping MU build a 24-0 halftime cushion.
Yurachek added his final TD grab with 1:06 left in the third for a 31-7 cushion, then Keion Davis scored on a one-yard run with 9:14 remaining for a 38-14 lead.
UC tacked on a late TD with 3:03 left in regulation to wrap up the 17-point outcome.
Marshall finished the night plus-2 in turnover differential and also owned possession of the ball for 39:11 of the 60-minute affair.
