Defense comes up big in 14-10 Ohio win at Kent State

Bobcats stop Golden Flashes inside 5-yard line late

KENT – Ohio’s defense saved the day Saturday at Kent State.

The Bobcats held the Golden Flashes inside the 5-yard line late in the fourth quarter following Ohio’s third turnover and managed a 14-10 victory at Dix Stadium.

Papi White fumbled a punt, and Kent State recovered at the Ohio 11-yard line. Quarterback Nick Holley gained 7 yards on two runs to the 4, but he was dropped by Quentin Poling for a loss of 3 yards and then threw incomplete on fourth down with 3:45 remaining. Dorian Brown and the Bobcats managed to run out the clock to secure the win.

“It was a very tough, physical football game,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “You don’t win that game unless you’ re a tough football team. … Our defense rose up and did what they had to do... <Read More>

ATHENS – Ohio could not put it all together Saturday in a 27-20 loss to Eastern Michigan at Peden Stadium.

The Bobcats surrendered only three points in the first half, but scored only three on offense. Then after the break, led by redshirt freshman Quinton Maxwell, Ohio got the ball moving but could not get a stop against the Eagles and quarterback Brogan Roback.

"I didn't think either side of the ball played especially well and they certainly didn't play winning football,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “We made enough mistakes along the way to cause us problems.”

Roback threw three second-half touchdowns and finished 29-of-39 passing for 347 yards.

Ohio forces 4 turnovers, get first win over BG in 5 years

Bobcats win 3rd straight game

ATHENS – Ohio forced four turnovers, built a 20-point lead and held on to beat Bowling Green for the first time in five years, getting a 30-24 homecoming victory Saturday at Peden Stadium.

“It is a good win to get under our belt,” Ohio safety Toran Davis said. “we have definitely been embarrassed by them the past four years. It is a good feeling to come out on top, especially on homecoming.”

Redshirt freshman Javon Hagan had his second interception and forced his fourth fumble this year as the Bobcats took a 30-10 lead in the third quarter.

“First off I feel like we have the best D-line in the MAC,” Hagan said. “Second off, our secondary has a lot of talent and I feel like the press thinks that since we are young we cannot make plays. So... <Read More>

Given 2nd chance, Brown comes through with big play

Linebacker forces fumble that leads to game-clinching TD

OXFORD – Blair Brown made the most of his second chance Saturday at Miami.

After having a targeting ejection overruled upon video review, Brown knocked the ball out of the hands of Miami freshman quarterback Noah Wezensky and into in the hands of Kevin Robbins in the end zone for the game-clinching touchdown in a 17-7 Ohio victory at Yeager Stadium.

One possession prior, Tarell Basham sacked Wezensky on third-and-17, but officials called Brown for targeting as he came in low with his helmet at Wezensky’s with four minutes to go. Had the call stood, not only would Miami have been awarded an automatic first down, but Brown would have been disqualified. The call was overturned.

ATHENS – Ohio scored touchdowns on its first four possessions and rolled to a 37-21 victory against Gardner-Webb on Saturday at Peden Stadium, but it came with a cost as injuries continued to pile up at running back.

Ohio comes up short against No. 15 Tennessee, 28-19

Bobcats still winless all-time against ranked opponents

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Ohio hung tough with Tennessee, but could not capitalize enough for the program’s first-ever win against a ranked opponent, falling 28-19 on Saturday before a crowd of 101,362 at Neyland Stadium.

The Bobcats (1-2) never led but had multiple opportunities to move in front of the No. 15 Volunteers (3-0). Tennessee’s fourth-quarter touchdown with 11:07 remaining finally gave it a two-possession cushion as it was able to close out the win.

Texas State wins offensive-packed 3-overtime game, 56-54

Ohio unable to match 2-point conversion to force 4th OT

ATHENS – Ohio’s attempt to tie the game with a 2-point conversion failed Greg Windham bobbled a low snap and could not recovered in time before he was brought down in the backfield, allowing Texas State to win a wild three-overtime season opener, 56-54, on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

Until then, both teams’ offenses had answers for the other, matching big play after big play. Windham’s 18-yard touchdown pass to Elijah Bell game Ohio a shot at the game-tying two-point conversion that would have forced a fourth overtime.

“It just sucks to feel like this and to have the game like that with the ball in my hand,” Windham said. “I should have just thrown the ball up and have somebody have a chance in the end zone. It just happens so fast, but I... <Read More>
