BOWL ELIGIBLE! ODU Tops Marshall, 38-14

NORFOLK, Va. -- In just its eighth year of football and second full season playing at the FBS level, Old Dominion University became bowl eligible with a 38-14 win over Marshall Saturday night in Norfolk.

Ray Lawry ran for a season-high 209 yards and a touchdown and David Washington threw for 199 yards and three touchdowns, as Old Dominion (6-3, 4-1 C-USA) outgained Marshall (2-7, 1-4 C-USA), 461-214, on the evening.

The Monarchs surged out to a 14-0 lead in the first eight minutes of action and carried a 21-7 lead into halftime. ODU then held the Thundering Herd scoreless for the majority of the second half before Marshall connected for a 22-yard touchdown pass in the final seconds.

Offensively, Jonathan Duhart, Travis Fulgham and Zach Pascall each hauled in a touchdown reception. Defensively, the Monarchs were led by cornerback Brandon Addison, who registered a school-record five pass breakups, as ODU held Marshall to under five yards per offensive play.
