Beat UMass (0-5) 37-34
Bobcat quarterback Tyler Tettleton returned to the lineup after sitting out a week with an injury and returned in style completing 15 of his 27 passes for 229 yards, 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. It wasn’t easy for Ohio though, they trailed UMass 27-20 to start the fourth quarter but scored 17 straight points to outlast the Minutemen. Runningback Beau Blankenship ran for 269 yards on 43 carries scoring 2 touchdowns to lead the Bobcats. It was Blankenship’s fifth straight 100-yard rushing effort.
Next up: Buffalo (1-3)
Lost to Louisiana Tech (4-0) 44-38
When is a 2nd quarter, two touchdown lead not safe? When you throw 3 interceptions and commit 16 penalties. With just over 7 minutes to go in the 2nd quarter, Virginia had a 24-10 lead over the Bulldogs but Michael Rocco threw 3 costly interceptions that Louisiana Tech converted into touchdowns.
Louisiana Tech scored 31 unanswered points to take a 44-24 lead early in the 4th before Virginia made it a game with two late touchdowns. Virginia did roll up 625 yards of offense and Rocco threw for 278 yards and 2 touchdowns but turnovers and penalties killed the Cavaliers. After two straight weeks of playing undefeated foes, Virginia gets (4-1) Duke.
Next up Duke (4-1)
Lost to San Jose State (4-1) 12-0
San Jose State held Navy to its lowest yardage total in 10 years (144 total) and relied on freshman kicker Austin Lopez to boot 4 field goals (ed. note: what is this field goal thing anyway is that even legal?) SJSU moved the ball well but couldn’t find the endzone so they relied on field goals of 29, 19, 32, and 43 yards. The Spartans managed 388 yards of offense but couldn’t score a touchdown. SJSU quarterback David Fales completed 29 of 34 passes for 280 yards with 1 interception. On their opening possession, the Midshipmen drove 66 yards to the San Jose 9 but fumbled the ball away. That would be the closest Navy would get to scoring, getting shut out for the first time in six years.
Next up Air Force (2-2)
Next up South Florida (2-3)
