Rourke's 2 overtime TD passes lift Ohio to win

Defense leads the way in regulation


YPSILANTI, Mich. – Nathan Rourke’s second touchdown pass of overtime put Ohio ahead, and the defense held Eastern Michigan on the final possession to allow the Bobcats to escape Rynearson Stadium with a 27-20 double overtime victory over the Eagles to open Mid-American Conference play Saturday.

The go-ahead touchdown pass was on a third-and-6 from Eastern Michigan’s 7. Rourke hooked up with Cameron Odom in the back of the end zone. Rourke also had a third-down completion to Andrew Meyer, who was able to get a foot down along the sideline to extend the drive.

With a chance to answer, Eastern Michigan (2-1, 0-1 MAC) followed a Shaq Vann rush for no gain with an incompletion in the end zone. Antoine Porter bobbled a tipped pass and eventually... <Read More>





Ouellette, Cope help Bobcats bounce back

Ohio extends Kansas' road misery with 42-30 victory


Lonnie McMillan Photo
ATHENS – A.J. Ouellette and Brendan Cope looked like their pre-injury selves, and Ohio’s offense was explosive in a fairly dominant 42-30 victory against Kansas on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

Both players missed the majority of last season, and both put up more than 100 yards against one of the Power 5’s worst teams. The Bobcats scored the game’s first 18 points and maintained a comfortable lead throughout most of the game.

“It’s a good win for our guys,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “They bounced back from a difficult game (a 44-21 loss at Purdue). I’m pleased with what they got done today.”

Ouellette broke a 63-yard run on Ohio’s first offensive play and finished with 102 yards on just 10 carries, while Cope caught a 58-yard pass in the... <Read More>

Boilermakers rack up 558 yards in 44-21 win over Bobcats

Long drive, turnovers lead to big Purdue 2nd quarter


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A 93-yard drive spurred a huge second quarter for Purdue, which ran away with a 44-21 victory against Ohio on Friday night at Ross-Ade Stadium.

Down just 10-7, Ohio threatened to tie or take the lead early in the second quarter when Brendan Cope’s 17-yard catch from Nathan Rourke moved the ball across midfield, but the drive stalled inside the 40, and Kyle Nelson tackled punt returner Jackson Antrop at the 3-yard line.

But the Bobcats (1-1) were unable to take advantage of forcing the Boilermakers (1-1) into bad field position. Tario Fuller got his team out of the shadow of its own end zone with a 22-yard run, and a 38-yard completion from David Blough to Brycen Hopkins on a third-down play eventually led to a 1-yard... <Read More>





Ohio blows out Hampton, 59-0, in season opener

Bobcats post biggest win in 80 years


Lonnie McMillan Photo
ATHENS – Ohio opened the 2017 season with one of its most dominant performances in history, blowing out Hampton, 59-0, on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

The Bobcats scored their most points in a game since they put 63 on the board against Northern Illinois in 1976 and had their biggest margin of victory since an 80-0 win against Rio Grande in 1937.

Ohio took advantage of short fields all night because Hampton’s offense was unable to move the ball, finishing with just 108 yards of offense. The Bobcats finished with 420 yards.

“At first the yards were tough to come by, but our offense was able to keep itself on the field by making first downs,” Ohio coach Solich said. “I think it was a wear-down effect. That's the way it usually is if you have a... <Read More>
