Turnovers, Louisiana's rushing attack too much for Ohio

Ragin' Cajuns pull away for 45-25 victory at Peden Stadium

ATHENS – Louisiana forced five turnovers and ran for 285 yards in beating Ohio 45-25 on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

The Ragin’ Cajuns exploded for 35 points in the second half after both defenses stood tough early. Both pro prospects, Elijah Mitchell and Trey Ragas ran for 143 and 129 yards, respectively, on 17 and 15 carries. Mitchell had three touchdowns.

Shane Hooks’ 21-yard touchdown catch from Nathan Rourke with 7:54 to go got Ohio to within 31-25, but Louisiana answered with a game-clinching score and then forced Nathan Rourke into a pair of turnovers in the final minutes.

With the Louisiana defense keying on Ohio’s run game, Rourke was 18 of 38 passing for 277 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. He ran nine times for 37... <Read More>

Gaines' 4th-quarter touchdown gives Marshall 33-31 win over Ohio

Herd take back bell in first meeting between rivals since 2015

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Shut out in the second half to that point, Marshall got a 43-yard touchdown pass from Isaiah Green to Xavier Gaines with 7:45 remaining, and the Thundering Herd took back the bell by edging Ohio 33-31 on Saturday night at Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

Gaines was wide open on the third-down play after Green rolled to his left and caught the ball with plenty of room to avoid one defender between him and the end zone. The extra point was missed off the left upright, but it did not matter. Ohio punted on the ensuing possession and never got the ball back.

It was Gaines' second score of the game, and it answered a 72-yard touchdown run by Ohio quarterback Nathan Rourke on an option keeper down the left sideline that gave the... <Read More>

Pittsburgh's defense shuts down Ohio 20-10

Sick Rourke, Bobcats unable to establish running game

PITTSBURGH – Sickness and a top-notch Pittsburgh defense were more than Nathan Rourke and Ohio could handle.

The Panthers held the Bobcats to 212 yards of offense in a 20-10 victory against the Bobcats on Saturday at Heinz Field.

Dealing with an illness, Rourke was 15 of 27 passing for 177 yards but was a non-factor in the running game, netting negative-43 yards on nine attempts. Pittsburgh had six tackles for loss.

Pittsburgh (1-1) found enough offense through the air, getting 321 yards passing from quarterback Kenny Pickett, who was 26 of 37 passing. Maurice Ffrench caught 10 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown.

Ohio’s defense stood tough for most of the game, but eventually, the offense’s inability to move the ball and stay on the... <Read More>

ATHENS – After struggling to get a win against an FCS opponent in the opener last year, Ohio took care of business this season.

The Bobcats scored on their first seven possessions and pulled away for a 41-20 victory against Rhode Island on Saturday afternoon at Peden Stadium.

Ohio’s performance was not perfect but it was solid, especially in comparison’s to last season’s 38-32 season-opening win against Howard.

“You just never know the first game as to how it’s going to go,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “It’s always a little bit of a guessing game in preparing your team to get ready. You want to make sure they’re ready for the physicalness of the game, but you don’t want to go in banged up, so a lot of times the first game doesn’t show... <Read More>
