HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – Keion Davis ran in two touchdowns, including the winning score late in the fourth quarter, to lift Marshall past Florida Atlantic in a 27-21 win Saturday night.

Trailing 21-19 late in the fourth quarter, Marshall (2-4, 1-1 Conference USA) drove 80 yards in 14 plays to set up Davis’ go-ahead touchdown run from the 1, and Chase Litton connected with Josh Knight for the 2-point conversion. Florida Atlantic then drove to Marshall’s 10 before Jason Driskell’s pass to Kalib Woods fell incomplete on fourth-and-3 with 1:11 left, and the Thundering Herd took over on downs to seal the win.

Litton finished 27 of 39 for 330 yards passing, including a 65-yard touchdown throw to Knight in the second quarter. Knight had 128 yards on nine catches. Amoreto Curraj had two field goals.

Florida Atlantic (1-6, 0-3) got 111 yards rushing and a touchdown from Devin Singletary and 109 yards rushing from Greg Howell, who also had a touchdown.
