Given a 2nd chance, Yazdani comes through

Bobcats score final 24 points to win Battle of the Bricks

OXFORD – Second chances do not always come around, but Josiah Yazdani made the most of his.

After missing less than two minutes earlier from 42 yards, Yazdani kicked a game-winning 28-yard field goal as time expired to rally the Bobcats from a 21-point deficit and to a 24-21 victory against rival Miami on Tuesday night at Yager Stadium.

It was the third game-winning field goal of the year for Yazdani, with the Bobcats beginning and ending the regular season on go-ahead kicks as the clock ran out. It makes Ohio (6-6, 4-4 Mid-American Conference) bowl eligible for the fifth straight year and the eighth time overall under coach Frank Solich and gives the Bobcats their eighth win in the last nine meetings against the RedHawks.

Ohio pulls away in final 5 minutes

ATHENS – Maurice Ndour scored 21 points and added 12 rebounds, and Ohio pulled away late for a 69-60 victory against Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Tuesday night at The Convo.

Pine Bluff (1-5) had the game tied at 54 with 4:22 remaining, but Ohio (2-1) held a 15-6 advantage the rest of the way.

Javarez Willis had 16 points, five rebounds and four assists, Mike Laster scored 10 points and had four boards, and Antonio Campbell finished with nine points and seven rebounds.

Marcel Mosley led the Golden Lions with 20 points, though it came on 7-of-20 shooting, and Ghiavonni Robinson had 15 points.

Thompson scores 34 as Eagles coast past Bobcats

Ohio only gets as close as 10 after trailing by 25 at halftime

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Bernard Thompson scored 18 of his 34 points in the first half to lead Florida Gulf Coast to a huge halftime lead that carried it past Ohio, 79-62, on Wednesday night at a soldout Aliko Arena.

The Eagles (3-0) led by as many as 26 and held a 45-20 halftime lead before the Bobcats (1-1) made a run early in the second half to get as close as 10 with still 11 minutes remaining, but they could not continue the momentum beyond that.

Javarez Willis had 14 of his team-high 17 points after the break, and Maurice Ndour scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half, but he fouled out with 4:42 remaining and played only 25 minutes because of foul trouble.

Fumble halts Ohio's chance at game-tying drive

Bobcats fall to 1st-place Huskies 21-14

ATHENS – Replay reversed a fumble call and ended Ohio’s attempted drive for a touchdown to tie the game, and the Bobcats fell 21-14 to Northern Illinois in single-digit wind chill temperatures Tuesday night at Peden Stadium.

The loss leaves the Bobcats (5-6, 3-4 Mid-American Conference) still one win short of bowl eligibility and keeps the Huskies (9-2, 6-1 MAC) in position to win the MAC West.

“It’s certainly a disappointing loss for our players,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “I feel badly for them. I thought they prepared hard for this football game. I thought they played hard. Obviously we needed to do things a little bit better all the way across the board.”

ATHENS – Freshman Ryan Taylor scored 10 of his 21 points during an early second-half 18-0 run and Ohio ran away with a 73-47 regular-season opening victory against Appalachian State on Saturday at The Convo.

Maurice Ndour posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Antonio Campbell reached double-figures with 11 points in just 16 foul-plagued minutes.

Chris Burgess and Tommy Spagnolo led the Mountaineers with 11 points apiece.

“Our length, our ability to apply our defensive game plan, some freshman that just walked in like he owned the place: Those are the three things that stood out to me,” Ohio coach Saul Phillips said. “Ryan was pretty bashful in his opener, and he held his guy to 2-of-12 shooting in the opener. I knew I... <Read More>

ATHENS – Ohio had five players score in double-figures and after trailing by as many as 14 early, pulled away to defeat Marietta, 82-69, in an exhibition game before a crowd of more than 11,000 on Saturday at The Convo.

Healthier Bobcats rout Bulls, 37-14

Ohio defense holds Buffalo to 134 yards, 7 first downs

ATHENS – As healthy as it has been all year, Ohio rolled to a 37-14 victory against Buffalo on a rainy Wednesday night at Peden Stadium.

Ohio (5-5, 3-3 Mid-American Conference) limited Buffalo to 134 yards of offense and seven first downs, and took advantage of four turnovers and a bad snap to run away from the struggling Bulls (3-6, 1-4 MAC).

A.J. Ouellete, finally back to 100 percent health, rushed 29 times for 155 yards and two touchdowns, and quarterback Derrius Vick, making his first start since an injury against Eastern Illinois, added 44 yards rushing for the Bobcats, who gained 233 yards on the ground.

The Bobcats led 27-0 late in the third quarter and might have shut out Buffalo if not for two turnovers of their own – a fumble... <Read More>
