Huntington, WV (SportsNetwork.com) - Marshalls bid for a perfect season went by the wayside Friday when Brandon Doughtys two-point conversion pass to Willie McNeal in overtime gave Western Kentucky a 67-66 victory over the 19th- ranked Thundering Herd. Marshall trailed throughout the majority of the defensively challenged contest, falling behind 14-0 early and trailing by 21 in the second quarter. The Thundering Herd, though, rallied for 10 points in the final 5 1/2 minutes of regulation to force overtime and went ahead for the first time all day on the second play of the extra period when Rakeem Cato hit Hyleck Foster with a 25-yard touchdown pass. It took just two plays for Western Kentucky to answer, as Doughty found Jared Dangerfield in the back of the end zone from 25 yards away. The Hilltoppers decided to go for the victory and Doughty easily hit McNeal in the right front corner of the end zone. Doughty threw for 491 yards with eight touchdowns and two interceptions for Western Kentucky (7-5, 4-4 C-USA), which won its final four games of the regular season. Leon Allen ran for 237 yards with a touchdown on 33 carries for the Hilltoppers. Cato also lit it up with 417 yards passing and seven touchdowns, but he was intercepted four times in defeat. Steward Butler rushed for 233 yards with two touchdowns for the Thundering Herd (11-1, 7-1), who will still play for the Conference USA championship next weekend. The 15 combined touchdown passes set an FBS record, while Allen and Butler became the first opponents to reach 230 rushing yards in the same game. Doughty ignited the scoring with two touchdown passes in the first 4 1/2 minutes of the contest. Following Doughtys 11-yard strike to Tyler Higbee, Cato was picked off two plays later and Doughty went to the end zone on the next play, connecting with Allen for a 17-yard score. Cato hit Tommy Shuler with a 26-yard TD pass to get Marshall on the board, but Western Kentucky answered on the next play from scrimmage when Taywan Taylor hauled in a 75-yard scoring pass from Doughty. Cato threw TD passes of 14 yards to Foster and 40 yards to Davonte Allen in between another Doughty touchdown strike to Higbee, making it 28-21 after an eventful opening quarter. The fireworks continued in the second, as Cato interceptions led to Leon Allens 10-yard touchdown and Doughtys 9-yard TD pass to Joel German for a 42-21 game with 10 1/2 minutes left before halftime. Cato threw a 2-yard TD pass to Eric Frohnapfel and Butler immediately followed a Doughty interception with a 48-yard touchdown run to pull Marshall within seven, but Doughty and Cato each found the end zone once more before the intermission to make it 49-42 at the break. Things calmed down in the third quarter, as Garrett Schwettman missed a 35- yard field goal for Western Kentucky and Butler ran 22 yards for the tying touchdown late in the period. Schwettman connected from 21 yards away early in the fourth and Doughty followed another Cato interception with a 35-yard TD pass to Dangerfield to make it 59-49 with 9:11 remaining. Justin Haig kicked a 17-yard field goal to pull Marshall within a touchdown and the Herd forced a Hilltopper punt with just over three minutes left, more than enough time for Cato to engineer an 82-yard drive for the tying score -- a 5-yard TD pass to Frohnapfel with 39 seconds left. Doughty was picked off near midfield and Marshall had a desperation heave to the end zone fall incomplete as time expired.

After the Salukis 73-65 loss at Murray State on Tuesday night, Hinson called his players "uncoachable," "a bunch of mamas boys" and compared the disciplining of his young team to housebreaking a puppy.Two quarterbacks entered the 101st Grey Cup with questions about their ability to win the big one. Only one answered them. Darian Durant and Henry Burris each had reputations for fading when the lights shine brightest heading into the championship game a couple weeks ago; Durant left hoisting the Grey Cup while Burris left to an uncertain off-season. To his credit the 38-year-old Burris has a Grey Cup ring won as a starter with the Calgary Stampeders in 2008, but his time with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats has thus far amounted to big stats and small tangible results. The Tiger-Cats now have to make a decision on Burris, a pending free agent. Does general manager and head coach Kent Austin think Burris can lead the black and gold to a Grey Cup win with a few roster tinkers at other positions, or is he better off cutting his loses and building toward a championship with someone younger at QB? If he chooses the latter, the Tiger-Cats should expect a periodd of regression.dddddddddddd Dan Lefevour has shown potential during his brief stints behind centre in Hamilton the past year, and the team also boasts young promising arms in Jeremiah Masoli, Brain Brohm, and Stephen McGee, but none of those guys could be expected to put up Burris-like numbers – leading the league in passing the past two years – right out of the gate. If Austin is unconvinced Burris will ever be his championship quarterback, and one of the aforementioned young QBs could grow into that role, he may decide to move on from the former Most Outstanding Player. The decision could also ultimately be a numbers one. Burris will be 39-years-old next season and likely wont come cheap with the resume hes amassed in his 14 years in the league. Burris has stated this off-season he wants to return to Hamilton. Is the feeling mutual? The Rouge asks: Should the Tiger-Cats re-sign Henry Burris? As always, its Your! Call.
