ST. PETERSBURG (CBSMiami.com) – Florida International University was looking to duplicate last year’s thrilling comeback victory in the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl.

But, unlike last year, FIU couldn’t pull out a last second win in the swan song game for all-everything receiver T.Y. Hilton.

The Thundering Herd knocked off FIU 20-10 on a late touchdown pass with 30 seconds to go in the game.

Marshall was set up earlier in the fourth quarter after Marshall’s Zach Dunston blocked an FIU punt in the fourth quarter.

T.Y. Hilton ran for 22 yards and a touchdown and caught eight passes for 84 yards, but an inefficient FIU offense couldn’t get moving throughout the game.
