Wells and Knox account for 5 TDs; Marshall beats La. Tech

Posted

RUSTON, La. (AP) — Grant Wells accounted for three touchdowns, Brenden Knox ran for two scores, and Marshall cruised to a 35-17 win over Louisiana Tech on Saturday night.

Wells was 19-of-24 passing for 227 yards and two TDs and his 1-yard scoring run gave the Thundering Herd (4-0) the lead for good at 7-0 with 5:36 left in the first quarter. Knox finished with 32 carries for 125 yards.

Knox capped a 12-play, 85-yard drive with a 1-yard TD late in the second quarter and his 7-yard scoring run midway through the third made it 21-3.

Louisiana Tech (3-2) answered when Luke Anthony hit Adrian Hardy for a 12-yard TD less than two minutes later but Wells threw touchdown passes of 46 yards to Artie Henry and 26 yards to Corey Gammage give Marshall a 35-10 lead with 11:03 to play.

Hardy led the Bulldogs with nine receptions for 102 yards.

The capacity at Louisiana Tech's Joe Aillet Stadium was limited to 25% (or 7,140 available seats, including the allowance of 1,000 students per game) due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. All fans and patrons attending the game will be required to wear a face covering in order to comply with the State of Louisiana Mask Mandate.
