HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Chase Litton threw for three touchdowns and Marshall scored three of its five touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull away from Old Dominion for a 35-3 Homecoming win on Saturday.

Litton’s second TD pass went 46 yards to Tyre Brady to give the Thundering Herd (5-1, 2-0 Conference USA) a 21-3 lead with 14:16 left in the fourth. The Monarchs (2-4, 0-2) fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Chris Jackson recovered and returned it 15 yards to make it 27-3.

Marshall forced a three-and-out on ODU’s next possession and Litton’s 31-yard pass to Ryan Yurachek capped the scoring with 10:49 left.

Litton finished 12 of 23 for 176 yards with no turnovers. Brady caught five passes for 76 yards and two scores. Tyler King added 77 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

Nick Rice’s 24-yard field goal in the second quarter gave the Monarchs the opening points. Marshall took the lead for good in the final minute of the first half on Brady’s 2-yard TD reception.
