ATHENS – Ohio scored touchdowns on its first four possessions and rolled to a 37-21 victory against Gardner-Webb on Saturday at Peden Stadium, but it came with a cost as injuries continued to pile up at running back.

The Bobcats (2-2) jumped out to a 30-7 halftime lead and finished the game with 517 yards of total offense while alternating between starter Greg Windham and backup Quinton Maxwell, who threw a pair of touchdown passes in his first career game action.

With Ohio making it a point to get playing time for every available player, the Bulldogs (1-3) outscored the Bobcats 14-7 in the second half to make the game appear closer than it was.

Ohio comes up short against No. 15 Tennessee, 28-19

Bobcats still winless all-time against ranked opponents

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Ohio hung tough with Tennessee, but could not capitalize enough for the program’s first-ever win against a ranked opponent, falling 28-19 on Saturday before a crowd of 101,362 at Neyland Stadium.

The Bobcats (1-2) never led but had multiple opportunities to move in front of the No. 15 Volunteers (3-0). Tennessee’s fourth-quarter touchdown with 11:07 remaining finally gave it a two-possession cushion as it was able to close out the win.

Ohio settled for four field goals in the first half from Louis Zervos – who now is 13 for 14 on the season – and trailed 14-12 at the break. Other missed opportunities were Tennessee’s five fumbles, none of them recovered by the Bobcats.

After missing most of the first two games, Sebastian... <Read More>

ATHENS – Ohio’s attempt to tie the game with a 2-point conversion failed Greg Windham bobbled a low snap and could not recovered in time before he was brought down in the backfield, allowing Texas State to win a wild three-overtime season opener, 56-54, on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

Until then, both teams’ offenses had answers for the other, matching big play after big play. Windham’s 18-yard touchdown pass to Elijah Bell game Ohio a shot at the game-tying two-point conversion that would have forced a fourth overtime.

“It just sucks to feel like this and to have the game like that with the ball in my hand,” Windham said. “I should have just thrown the ball up and have somebody have a chance in the end zone. It just happens so fast, but I... <Read More>
