Stat Line Of The Night — 12/19/11 — Aldon Smith
Stat Line Of The Night — 12/20/11 — Aaron Dobson
Some of you may recognize the name, Aaron Dobson. He is the Marshall wide receiver that made highlight packages across America following his incredible one-handed backhand touchdown grab in the back of the end zone a few weeks ago. He was busy putting his reliable hands to work once again last night as he and his teammates took on Florida International at the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl.
Marshall only found the end zone twice in the game, and it was Dobson taking them there in both instances, via passes of 31 and 35 yards from quarterback Rakeem Cato. He would finish the game with seven receptions for 81 yards and two touchdowns, as Marshall used a 10-point fourth quarter to come away with the 20-10 victory.
With eight touchdowns in his last six games, Dobson has become a reliable target for Cato, and while he didn’t get himself into the highlight packages last night, his performance did earn him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Tuesday, December 20, 2011.
