Marshall Football Postgame Notes
Charlotte 27, Marshall 24
Marshall had the same starting five along the offensive line for the first six games, but that changed against Charlotte. Sophomore guard Nate Devers made his first start of the season at left guard in place of Michael Selby, who did not dress. It was Devers’ second career start.
Herd quarterback Chase Litton connected with Justin Hunt for a 4-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The touchdown pass extended Litton’s streak of consecutive games with a TD pass to 17 games (every game of his college career).
Chase Litton passed Brian Anderson (37) and Stan Hill (38) on the career touchdown passes list. Litton entered the game tied with Anderson for 10th place on the all-time list. Litton is tied with Carl Fodor for No. 8 in program history with 39 touchdown passes.
Herd tight end Ryan Yurachek extended his streak of consecutive games with a reception to 25.
A pair of MU receivers set a career high for catches. Deon-Tay McManus finished with seven receptions, topping the six he had last season at Charlotte. Josh Knight had 10 receptions, which is one better than the nine he had last week against Florida Atlantic.
