HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Alex Thomson passed for two touchdowns and ran for another and the Marshall defense forced five turnovers in beating Florida Atlantic 31-7 on Saturday.
Artis Johnson, Malik Thompson, Malik Gant and Chris Jackson all had interceptions and Thompson forced a fumble, recovered by Kereon Merrell. The Marshall defense also extended its streak of consecutive games without allowing a first-quarter touchdown to 10 games -- the second-longest streak in the nation, trailing LSU.
Armani Levias caught three passes for 47 yards and two scores, of 13 and 29 yards, for Marshall (5-2, 3-1 Conference USA), which has now won 15 straight games when scoring first. Tyler King rushed for 125 yards and one touchdown for his third straight 100-yard game.
