Important Parking Information!
ATHENS, Ohio-Ohio Football steps out of conference Saturday as the Ragin' Cajuns of Louisiana visit Peden Stadium for a 2 p.m. ET kickoff.
The Bobcats (5-3 overall) are coming off a 34-13 win at Miami last Saturday, a victory that gave the program its fifth-straight win over the Redhawks. Ohio got two rushing scores from running back Donte Harden and quarterback Boo Jackson, while running back Vince Davidson had a career-high 103 rushing yards on 17 carries with another score. Jackson completed 10 of 19 passes for 149 yards and an interception with four of those completions going to Riley Dunlop for 68 yards. Defensively, the Bobcats got two sacks apiece from defensive lineman Dak Notestine and cornerback Travis Carrie, while linebacker Eric Benjamin added another. Ohio also picked off four passes in the game, two by cornerback Omar Leftwich, with safeties Steven Jackson and Hilton Dawson III providing the other two. Linebacker Chad Clemens had a team-high five tackles.
Louisiana (2-5) dropped a 54-21 decision to Western Kentucky on Homecoming last Saturday, snapping the Hilltoppers' 26-game losing streak, which had been the longest in the nation. Kawaun Jakes led the WKU charge hitting on 18-of-22 passes for 262 yards. The Hilltoppers recorded two defensive scores - a 69-yard fumble recovery by Jamarcus Allen and 62-yard interception return by Derrius Brooks. Chris Masson completed 16-of-34 pass attempts for UL, amassing 223 yards. However, he threw two interceptions in the fourth quarter which sealed the Cajuns fate. Vernon Wolfe caught four passes for 94 yards and Aaron Spikes added 42 yards rushing and 54 yards receiving.
