ATHENS, Ohio-Ohio redshirt freshman kicker Matt Weller (Twinsburg, Ohio) was named Mid-American Conference East Division Special Teams Player of the Week Monday.
Weller nailed a 50-yard field goal and added one PAT in the Bobcats 23-16 loss to Connecticut. His field goal with 2:36 remaining in the fourth quarter made the contest a one possession game and tied for 10th on the program’s all-time list with Gary Homer (twice) and Mike Fultz. He also averaged 65 yards per kickoff.
The Bobcats will be back in action Saturday at North Texas for a 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) kickoff. Airtime on the Citizens Bank Ohio ISP Sports Network is an hour earlier.
