Hodge's interception helps Buffalo hold off Ohio, 31-24

Jackson, Johnson hook up for 2 TDs for Bulls

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Khalil Hodge intercepted Nathan Rourke in the end zone on a fourth-and-12 play from the Buffalo 13 with 1:20 remaining, and the Bulls held off Ohio, 31-24, to close out the regular season Friday afternoon.

The Bobcats (8-4, 5-3 Mid-American Conference) rallied from a 24-7 deficit to tie the game at 24, but a short punt into the wind, followed by a K.J. Osborn 38-yard return to the Ohio 6-yard line set up the winning score – a 1-yard Emmanuel Reed run with 8:10 remaining.

Ohio answered with a long drive, but Rourke was sacked on third-and-5 to set up a fourth-down play in which the ball was tipped, Hodge pulled it in and then held off Andrew Meyer as he tried to take it away as the two fell to the ground.
