Western Michigan holds off Ohio, 29-23, to win MAC Championship

Windham provides spark, but is intercepted in final minute

DETROIT – Robert Spillane intercepted Ohio’s Greg Windham inside Western Michigan’s 30-yard line with 51 seconds remaining, and the Broncos held on to defeat the Bobcats, 29-23, on Friday night to remain undefeated and in contention for the Cotton Bowl while denying Ohio its first Mid-American Conference championship since 1968.

Windham, a senior, came on in relief of redshirt freshman Quinton Maxwell and nearly rallied the Bobcats, who trailed 23-7 at halftime. Ohio’s defense also did its part, limiting the high-scoring Western Michigan offense to five field goals and two touchdowns in by far the highest-attended MAC Championship Game with a crowd of 45,615 at Ford Field.

TOLEDO – It was a streak longer than the Mid-American Conference championship drought.

Dorian Brown rushed for 212 yards, and Ohio defeated Toledo, 31-26, for the Bobcats’ first road victory against the Rockets since 1967.

"This team is amazing; they never quit," Ohio coach Frank Solich said. "Toledo is an outstanding football team. They are always prepared and play the whole game. It took us the whole game to put them away. I thought our guys responded well on both sides of the ball."

After forcing a punt with about a minute to play, Toledo (5-2, 3-1 Mid-American Conference) had a chance to rally after trailing the whole game by going 75 yards without any timeouts, but after a 23-yard completion from Logan Woodside to Cody Thompson on the... <Read More>
