Davis, Franklin lead Western Michigan past Ohio

Vick's return not nearly enough to spark Bobcats

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Derrius Vick returned from injury and gave Ohio a spark offensively in the second half but it was not nearly enough as Western Michigan ran away with a 42-21 victory against the Bobcats on Saturday at Waldo Stadium.

JD Sprague started at quarterback, but Vick, who was the starter until an injury but practiced all week, took over after Sprague got hurt and was ineffective. With Ohio playing from behind, Ohio was forced to throw a lot, and Vick went 18 of 31 for 246 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Sprague was just 2-of-5 passing for 38 yards and led the Bobcats to only two first downs on five possessions. By then, Ohio was down 21-7.

Even so, the Bobcats (4-5, 2-3 Mid-American Conference) actually had the early... <Read More>

Johnson's fumble return sets up Yazdani's game-wining FG

Bobcats beat Zips for the 8th straight time

ATHENS – Jovon Johnson’s fumble recovery set up Josiah Yazdani’s game-winning 22-yard field goal with 1:55 remaining and Ohio defeated Akron for the eighth straight time, 23-20, on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

With the game tied at 20, Devin Bass forced the fumble by Andrew Pratt near midfield, and after picking it up, Johnson returned it 24 yards to the Akron 21-yard line.

"The first thing was to get the ball,” Johnson said. “I tried to pick it up the first time and bobbled it, so I fell and then I got back up and picked it up again. When I got up I didn't see anything but white, and I thought it was the opposite team, so I cut back, and, from there, I just tried to get into the end zone.”

The Bobcats (4-4, 2-2 Mid-American Conference) were... <Read More>

ATHENS – Ohio dominated many of the statistics coach Frank Solich thought would get the Bobcats a win, but penalties and a handful of big plays for Bowling Green led it to a relatively comfortable 31-13 victory Saturday on the Bobcats’ homecoming at Peden Stadium.

The struggling Bobcats offense racked up 513 yards on a school-record 110 plays and held the high-powered Falcons offense was limited to 355 yards. Ohio had more first downs, 29-19, and had nearly double the possession time of Bowling Green. Yet it was not nearly enough to overcome 16 penalties for 153 yards.

“You can’t finish drives off and put points on the board when you are heavily penalized, and you’re also if you’re heavily penalized form the defensive standpoint, you allow... <Read More>

Bobcats dominated by Chips' defense, Rawls, Davis

Central Michigan tops Ohio, 28-10

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. – Thomas Rawls and Titus Davis combined for more than 400 yards of offense to more than double Ohio’s team production as Central Michigan rolled to a 28-10 victory Saturday at Kelly/Shorts Stadium.

Playing without starting quarterback Derrius Vick and running back A.J. Ouellette, the Bobcats (3-3, 1-1 Mid-American Conference) got nothing going on offense and were limited to 187 yards and eight first downs. Meanwhile, the senior pair for the Chippewas did plenty. Rawls ran for 229 yards and two touchdowns on 40 carries, and Davis caught 10 passes, including two for scores, for 181 yards.

Ohio was limited to just 24 yards and two first downs in the first half and trailed 14-3, and it could have been worse had the... <Read More>

ATHENS – A.J. Ouellette and JD Sprague each ran for two touchdowns in their first career starts and Ohio cruised to a 34-19 victory against Eastern Illinois on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

The Bobcats led 21-3 less than a minute into the second quarter and the FCS-level Panthers never threatened an upset.

The game Ouellette had last week against Idaho after he took over following an early Daz’mond Patterson fumble earned the former walk-on freshman the starting role and he excelled again with 87 yards on 11 carries. He left in the third quarter with an ankle injury and did not return, though he said he could have and will be fine going forward.

After being held to 34 points total in their first three games, the Bobcats (3-2) have scored 70... <Read More>
