Ohio adds 24 player in 2014 recruiting class

QB Duckworth, OL Lowery rated highest among recruits


ATHENS – Ohio added 24 players in its 2014 football recruiting class on Wednesday.

The class includes 21 freshmen and three junior college athletes. Among them are 16 players from Ohio, players from seven other states and one from Canada.

“I think this will probably prove out to be a very good class,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “I think that the last two have been exceptional. I know we had a lot of first time players on campus play for us this season and get a lot of good experience. I think this is a similar type class in that we have a lot of guys playing from this class. A lot of these guys are already physically mature and mentally mature and that’s always good.”

The class is heavy on cornerbacks with five and wide receivers with... <Read More>

After falling behind 14-0, Ohio (7-6( rallied to take a 20-17 lead on a Josiah Yazdani field goal with 13:34 remaining, but the high-powered East Carolina offense finally broke through with three straight touchdowns in the final 10 minutes.

Carrie returns 2 interceptions for TDs in Ohio win

Bobcats bounce back with 51-23 blowout of Minutemen


Lonnie McMillan Photo
ATHENS – Ohio has had its share of struggles this season – especially in losing three straight games – but the Bobcats put all of that behind them and trounced UMass, 51-23, in their regular season finale Friday at Peden Stadium.

Travis Carrie returned two interceptions for touchdowns and, after being shut down the last three weeks, Ohio’s offense rolled to 461 yards to improve the team’s chance of appearing in a fifth straight bowl game.

The Bobcats (7-5, 4-4 Mid-American Conference) seemed to set the tone early with two quick touchdowns, but the Minutemen (1-11, 1-7 MAC) responded with 10 straight points and were poised to take the lead with possession at the Ohio 39-yard line early in the second quarter when Carrie picked off A.J. Doyle... <Read More>

Golden Flashes score game's final 34 points

The Golden Flashes took the lead on a late first-half touchdown and carried that momentum into the second half, scoring the game’s final 34 points.

Dri Archer tore through Ohio’s defense for 138 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries and added 53 yards on five receptions to nearly outdo the Bobcats’ entire offense, which was limited to 204 yards. It was the third straight game Ohio was held to less than 240 yards.

Ohio (6-5, 3-4 Mid-American Conference) scored its only touchdown in the last three games on a 1-yard pass from Tyler Tettleton to Mario Dovell, putting the Bobcats up 13-10 at the 10:04 mark in the... <Read More>

Matt Johnson was 12 of 17 passing for 229 yards and two touchdowns, while Travis Greene carried 22 times for 149 yards and two scores.

After forcing a three-and-out on the game’s opening possession, Bowling Green needed only two plays to find the end zone. Johnson connected to Shaun Joplin for a 43-yard pass and Greene scored on an 11-yard run on the next play.

AMHERST, N.Y. - Ohio was held to 233 yards, a total surpassed by Buffalo running back Branden Oliver and the Bulls ran away from the Bobcats in the second half for a 30-3 victory Tuesday night at University at Buffalo Stadium.

Though replay shows he threw from the 4-yard line, quarterback Tyler Tettleton was called for intentional grounding in the end zone, resulting in a safety for a 9-3 lead for Buffalo in the third quarter, and momentum shifted fully in favor of the Bulls after that.

Oliver scored on a 13-yard run after a short field following the free kick, and Alex Neutz added two touchdown receptions as Buffalo (7-2, 5-0 Mid-American Conference) remained atop the MAC East standings and virtually eliminated Ohio from league... <Read More>

Tyler Tettleton hit Foster for touchdown catches of 2 and 33 yards in the first quarter and 5 yards in the second quarter as Foster finished with eight catches for 122 yards and passed Terrance McCrae as the Ohio all-time touchdown receptions leader with 20.

"He is a complete receiver,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “The one thing that has made him so successful is that he is a smart football player. We are really proud of Donte getting that record, but obviously someone has to throw him the football and protect."

Eastern Michigan (1-6, 0-3 Mid-American Conference) threatened to take the lead in the third quarter, driving to the Ohio 4-yard line. But Devin Bass picked off Tyler Benz in the end zone and the Bobcats outscored the Eagles 35-7 the rest of the way, beginning with an 80-yard connection from Tettleton to Chase Cochran on the first play after the pick to put Ohio on top, 28-21, at the 4:58 mark.

ATHENS – Given a second chance in the final five minutes, Central Michigan scored the winning touchdown with 22 seconds left on a 5-yard pass from Cooper Rush to Courtney Williams, ruining Ohio’s homecoming, 26-23, on Saturday at Peden Stadium.

The Bobcats went ahead on a 1-yard Ryan Boykin touchdown run with 4:42 remaining and got a three-and-out to force a Chippewas punt, but Travis Carrie muffed the ball and it was recovered by Joe Bacci at the Ohio 39-yard line with 2:47 to go.

It was Ohio’s fourth turnover and was just what Central Michigan needed after it gave up a 13-3 lead late in the third quarter.

“It’s not (Carrie’s) fault whatsoever,” Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton said. “We shouldn’t even be mentioning him whatsoever. I had... <Read More>

Tettleton goes 13 of 15 with 3 TD passes


ATHENS – Ohio limited Austin Peay to 298 yards in a 38-0 shutout to cap off non-conference play Saturday at Peden Stadium.

It was the Bobcats' first shutout since a 38-0 defeat of Buffalo on Sept. 25, 2004.

"This was huge for us,” Ohio defensive end Ty Branz said. “It has been a long time if ever that we've got a shutout and that's what everybody on defense was pushing for and hoping for. That was our goal."

Tyler Tettleton went 13 of 15 for 213 yards to top 7,000 for his career. He threw for three touchdowns as the Bobcats rolled to 494 yards of offense despite sitting their starters most of the second half. Matt Waters caught a pair of touchdown passes.

Ohio uses turnovers to down Marshall again

Thundering Herd give up ball 4 times as Bobcats keep Bell

ATHENS – Ohio took advantage of four Marshall turnovers and won the Battle for the Bell for the third straight year, downing the Thundering Herd, 34-31, on Saturday night at Peden Stadium.

"It means a lot to the university, the coaching staff, players and campus as a whole,” Ohio tight end Troy Hill said. “We put in effort and hard work. People thought the streak was going to end tonight, but it didn't. It shows that we were the underdog once again and it felt good to prove everybody wrong."

Marshall’s final giveaway, a Rakeem Cato interception by Devin Bass, set up a 29-yard Matt Green field goal with 2:46 remaining to put the Bobcats up 10. Cato scored on a 1-yard run with 29 seconds left, but the onside kick attempt went out of bounds... <Read More>






Bobcats hold on to top Mean Green, 27-21

Hughes' interception clinches Ohio victory


ATHENS – Xavier Hughes’ interception with 1:02 remaining clinched a 27-21 Ohio victory in its home opener against North Texas on Saturday night at Peden Stadium.

Matt Green’s 22-yard field goal with 1:23 remaining gave the Bobcats a six-point edge that meant the Mean Green needed a touchdown to win. On a second-and-19 play, Josh Kristoff deflected a Derek Thompson pass and Hughes was able to hold onto it, allowing Ohio to run out the clock.

North Texas started its final possession from its own 16-yard line after stumbling on the kick return. Brandon Purdum made a stop for a four-yard loss on a first-down screen pass, forcing the Mean Green to burn one of their final two remaining timeouts, and a false start pushed North Texas back five... <Read More>

ATHENS, Ohio – No regrets.

When Ohio’s accomplished seniors finish this season, they want to be able to look back and say they would not change a thing about their time with the Bobcats.

“This is an excellent group of seniors as I look at what they have accomplished, but they have a couple other things that they want to get accomplished,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “They’re talking about being remembered and no regrets. That’s the motto they are going with this year.”

Ohio’s seniors have contributed to a 27-13 record the last three years, a Mid-American Conference East Division championship in 2011, three bowl games and the program’s first two postseason victories in its history.

Still, the Bobcats have not been crowned MAC champions in... <Read More>
