. (AP) -- Ronnie Weaver rushed for a career-high 150 yards, Jeff Godfrey ran for two touchdowns and Central Florida beat Marshall 35-14 on Wednesday night.
UCF (4-2, 2-0 Conference USA) broke open a close game in a steady rain with two touchdowns in the span of a minute in the third quarter and Marshall (1-5, 0-2) never recovered.
The nation's ninth-best defense limited Marshall's running game to 41 yards. And on a soggy night, two Marshall Quarterbacks couldn't complete enough passes to overcome a big deficit.
The game was stopped for more than an hour in the second quarter due to lightning. Only a few thousand fans returned to their seats when play resumed and halftime was canceled.
