Former Utah State and Texas Tech quarterback Henry Colombi helped his current team, the Marshall Thundering Herd, topple a college football giant on Saturday. Marshall won 26-21 against the University of Notre Dame.

Notre Dame was ranked no. 8 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 College Poll and took third-ranked Ohio State to the brink just last week. The Fighting Irish had been predicted to win by nearly three touchdowns over Marshall.

Colombi was 16 for 21 for 145 yards and one touchdown in his second start for his new school. Marshall beat Norfolk State 55-3 last week.

Colombi played for Utah State in 2018 and 2019 before transferring to Texas Tech, where he played for the past two seasons. He then transferred again in January.
