ATHENS, Ohio - Former Ohio University quarterback Tyler Tettleton will play in the Inaugural Medal of Honor Bowl on Saturday in Charleston, S.C.
Kickoff for Saturday afternoon's contest is set for 2 p.m. inside Johnson Hagood Stadium on the campus of The Citadel.
Tettleton (Norman, Okla.) will play on the American Roster coached by former University of Maryland head coach Ralph Friedgen.
Tettleton accepted the invitation to play in the game after authoring one of the finest playing careers in school history.
In three years as the Bobcats' starting quarterback, he helped guide Ohio to the 2011 Mid-American Conference East Division crown, a pair of bowl victories, including its first-ever bowl triumph in the 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl and the program's first 10-win season since 1968.
He also set 27 school records, became the first quarterback in school history to surpass 9,000 yards through the air and threw 67 touchdown passes during his career in Athens.
