HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) Marshall coach Doc Holliday and his young quarterback saw the two injured Appalachian State players on the ground after a collision. So they knew what to do next.
Holliday called for redshirt freshman Grant Wells to run toward the side of safety Ryan Huff's replacement.
Wells scored on a 12-yard run late in the third quarter, Marshall's defense came up with stop after stop and the Thundering Herd beat No. 23 Appalachian State 17-7 on Saturday.
