Huntington, WV (Sports Network) - Jelani Woseley came up with a clutch interception to help the Bobcats clinch the victory as Ohio University edged the Marshall Thundering Herd, 27-24, in the Battle for the Bell rivalry game at Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

Beau Blankenship contributed 102 yards on 30 carries on the ground while Ryan Clark and Tyler Furtrell each recorded a receiving touchdown. Matt Weller lifted the Bobcats to the lead with a 38-yard field goal with just 97 seconds remaining. Ian Wells had a strong performance on the other side of the ball with four tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, and two pass break ups. Ohio remains the only team from the MAC without a loss.

Marshall (1-2), which went into the week leading the NCAA in passing, received another stellar performance from Rakeem Cato, who completed a school record 44 passes on 65 attempts for 432 yards and three touchdowns before his late game interception. Tommy Shuler had a big day with 121 yards on 13 grabs while Aaron Dobson reeled in 11 catches for 94 yards and a touchdown. D.J. Hunter recorded 12 tackles and forced a fumble.

The Thundering Herd came out of the gate hot and marched down the field on its opening drive before Cato found Jazz King for a three-yard touchdown pass.

Marshall extended its lead to 14-0 when Cato capped off a 10-play, 85-yard drive by completing a five-yard scoring pass to Dobson at the 6:46 mark of the period.

Ohio charged back in the second quarter, first with a six-yard touchdown pass from Tettleton to Troy Hill. Weller added a 22-yard field goal with 6:27 left in the opening half to make it 14-10.

The Bobcats took their first lead with 49 seconds left before halftime as Tettleton threw it four yards to Furtrell for a touchdown to punctuate a 13- play, 96-yard drive. Tettleton's second touchdown pass of the day gave Ohio a 17-14 lead heading into the intermission.

Cato answered after the break by completing a 14-yard touchdown pass to Gator Hoskins for the third period's only score.

Justin Haig connected on a 37-yard field goal in the opening minute of the final frame to give the Herd a 24-17 lead.

Ohio answered on the ensuing drive and Ryan Clark's 27 yard touchdown catch courtesy of a Tettleton pass evened up the score, 24-24, with 10:43 left to play.

Nathan Carpenter's 48 yard fumble return set up Weller for the go-ahead field goal.
