Ohio's offensive struggles continue in 35-6 loss at Northwestern

Bobcats score on final play to avoid shutout

EVANSTON, Ill. – Winless Ohio’s offensive struggles continued as it was shut out until the final play of the game in a 35-6 loss to Northwestern on Saturday at Ryan Field.

If not for a 55-yard Armani Rogers touchdown run with no time left on the block, the Bobcats would have finished with less than 300 yards. As it was, Northwestern ran for more yards (373) than Ohio had total yards (348).

Evan Hull led the way for the Wildcats (2-2) with 216 yards, including a 90-yard burst for a touchdown in the first quarter. He had already scored on a touchdown run of 17 yards.

Louisiana converts on goal-line plays to run past Ohio 49-14

Bobcats struggle to just 250 yards of offense

LAFAYETTE – Louisiana scored on the last play of the first half and twice on fourth down while running away with a 49-14 victory against winless Ohio on Thursday night at Cajun Field.

Despite a bad start, the Bobcats (0-3) had a chance to stay in the game but could not get key goal-line stops as the Ragin’ Cajuns (2-1) piled up 562 yards of offense.

Montrell Johnson kept his balance as he spun off of a defender and fell down the ground short of the goal line, but the ball was ruled to have reached the end zone on a run from the 1-yard line as time expired in the first half, giving Louisiana a 21-7 lead. The call was upheld after replay.

Johnson scored again on a fourth-and-goal play on the first possession of the second half to make it... <Read More>

Bobcats can't overcome penalties, Dukes' long drives

ATHENS – A fade pass to Ryan Luehrman on a potential game-tying two-point conversion try was broken up, and penalty-riddled Ohio lost to an FCS opponent for the first time since 2002 with a 28-26 defeat against Duquesne on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

Kurtis Rourke completed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Ty Walton with 9 seconds left to give the Bobcats a chance to rally from a 12-point fourth-quarter deficit, but a defender was able to prevent Luehrman from making a similar catch near the right sideline. The Dukes then recovered an onside kick try to give the Northeast Conference, which limits scholarships to 40, its first-ever win against an FBS opponent.

ATHENS – Ohio’s offense produced yards but not touchdowns in a season-opening 29-9 loss to Syracuse to begin the Tim Albin coaching era on Saturday night at Peden Stadium.

The Bobcats had 346 yards of offense and moved inside the Orange 35-yard line six times but settled for only three field goals.

It was the first game as head coach for Alban after Frank Solich stepped aside after 16 years at the helm less than two months ago because of health issues. Solich was honored before the game, which was the first in two years to feature fans – a near capacity crowd of 23,904 was on hand – because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Awesome crowd. Wow,” Albin said. “It was great to see the hill packed, and the student section was awesome. I wish we got... <Read More>
