Ohio-Miami Game Notes
ATHENS, Ohio-Ohio Football travels to Miami for a 1 p.m. ET kickoff Saturday in a crucial MAC East tilt.
The Bobcats (4-3 overall, 3-1 MAC) are coming off a 38-10 Homecoming win over Akron last Saturday to push their record to 4-3 overall, while moving to 3-1 in the Mid-American Conference. Quarterback Boo Jackson went 14-for-21 for 161 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The touchdown toss gave him 29 for his career and tied for the top mark in program history. Wideout Terrence McCrae snared six passes for 107 yards for two touchdowns. Those two scores gave him 16 career TD catches, surpassing Todd Snyder's mark that stood for 41 years. Cornerback Julian Posey had a career-high eight tackles, while safety Donovan Fletcher had six stops and his fifth interception, a total that stands alone atop the national rankings.
The RedHawks (4-3, 3-0 MAC) picked up a last-minute 27-20 victory at Central Michigan on the strength of 71-yard bomb from Zac Dysert to Andy Cruse with just 19 seconds left. Dysert completed 29 of 47 psses for 399 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions on the afternoon. Cruse and fellow wideout Armand Robinson combined for 17 catches for 281 yards. Tracy Woods had 33 yards on the ground, while linebacker Evan Harris had a team-high 11 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions and one pass breakup.
