Bobcat Blitz Returns To The Airwaves

Aug. 30, 2007

ATHENS, Ohio-Bobcat Blitz is back and ready to follow the Ohio Bobcats during the 2007 collegiate football season.


On the season premier of Bobcat Blitz, host Andy Howell welcomes head coach Frank Solich and starting quarterback Brad Bower.  The Bobcat Blitz team takes a look back at Ohio's historic season in 2006 in which the Bobcats went to just the third bowl game in school history, previews the season opener against Gardner-Webb and provides an in-depth look at the offseason position battles for the Bobcats.


Ohio was picked first in the MAC East by the MAC News Media Association preseason poll. The Bobcats will open this year's slate at home on September 1 against Gardner-Webb at 7 p.m.
