Beef O Bradys Bowl
December 21, 2011 by staff
Beef O Bradys Bowl, Aaron Dobson had “The Catch” in last month’s regular-season finale for the Marshall football team, an acrobatic one-handed grab against East Carolina that nudged its way onto national television and YouTube.
During Tuesday night’s Beef ’O’ Brady’s Bowl here against Florida International, and in front of an ESPN audience, the former South Charleston High standout flashed his receiving skills with two more touchdown snags that helped him earn the bowl’s MVP honors.
Dobson had both of MU’s touchdowns in a 20-10 win over FIU, giving the Herd a winning season (7-6) for the second time in three years.
Dobson finished with seven catches for 81 yards and a game-sealing 35-yard touchdown with 30 seconds left.
Dobson, a 6-foot-3 junior from Dunbar, caught the first touchdown — a 31-yarder — from true freshman quarterback Rakeem Cato in the waning moments of the first half.
The grab drew oohs and ahhs from the 20,072 fans in Tropicana Field.
Dobson found himself one-on-one with FIU cornerback Sam Miller, and out-jumped the helpless defender inside the 5, hauled in the pass and let his momentum carry him over the goal line for a game-tying score.
Dobson jumped up and motioned to the Thundering Herd faithful, who were mostly seated in that corner of Tropicana Field in the area behind home plate spanning from dugout to dugout.
Dobson finished the season with 12 touchdowns and now has 21 for his career.
