Boca Raton, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Rakeem Cato finished off his illustrious career at Marshall by leading his team to a win in the inaugural Boca Raton Bowl. Cato threw for 281 yards with three touchdowns and also rushed for two scores in the Thundering Herds 52-23 win over Northern Illinois. The Miami Central High School product continued his stellar play for Marshall (13-1) and pushed his NCAA-record streak of games with a touchdown pass to 46 straight. Tommy Shuler, Catos longtime friend and teammate at Miami Central, hauled in 18 passes for 185 yards and a score, while Deon-Tay McManus and Angelo Jean- Louis had a touchdown grab apiece in the win. Shuler ended his career with 321 catches, a Conference USA record. Devon Johnson rumbled his way to 131 yards on 15 carries with a touchdown for the Herd, who bounced back from their lone loss of the season against Western Kentucky to win the Conference USA championship game before their lopsided win on Tuesday. Drew Hare went 15-of-27 through the air for 225 yards and a touchdown for the Huskies (11-3). He also added 50 yards on the ground. Cameron Stingily rushed for a score and Christian Hagan went 3-of-4 on his field goal attempts in the loss. A pass interference penalty set up the first score of the game, a 19-yard pitch-and-catch from Hare to Juwan Brescacin. It was the 10th straight game Northern Illinois scored first. Deandre Reaves got it right back, though, as he returned the ensuing kickoff 93 yards for a score. Marshall got the ball back at the NIU 42 after a three-and-out for the Huskies. Shuler made three catches for 38 yards on the drive before Cato took a quarterback keeper and rushed for a 5-yard TD to give the Thundering Herd a 14-7 lead with under four minutes to play in the opening quarter. The Huskies moved deep into Marshall territory on the following drive, but Hagan missed a 32-yard field goal attempt, Johnson flipped the field with a 47-yard run to the NIU 14 which led to Justin Haigs 28-yard field goal. Northern Illinois again moved the ball into its opponents territory, but Joel Bouagnon was stuffed on three straight plays from inside the 5 to set up a 19- yard field goal from Hagan that summed up NIUs night in the red zone. Marshall went 6-for-6 on its red zone opportunities and the Huskies converted 4-of-5 chances, but Hagan was the beneficiary of most of those trips. Shulers 42-yard catch-and-run on the Thundering Herds next touch preceded Johnsons 2-yard TD run two plays later for a 24-10 margin. Hagan booted a 30-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the half to cut the deficit to 24-13 at the break. The Huskies recovered an onside kick to begin the second half and moved the ball to midfield prior to turning it over on downs.

On the fourth play of the march, Hare hooked up with Aregeros Turner for a 30-yard gain, then Stingily rushed for a 24-yard score on the following play.
