I've got this Ohio/E. Michigan game on in the background while working. Former Cyclone Beau Blankenship just scored a TD for Ohio. #CyclonesChris Williams
Ohio forced another stalled Eastern Michigan drive and started a new drive from its own 27-yard line with 5:58 left in the first quarter. However, a fumble by Blankenship on the second play of the drive allowed the Eagles to take over in Ohio territory.

After the EMU score, Ohio marched down the field on an 18-play, 64-yard drive that lasted 7:17. Still, the Bobcats were unable to get into the endzone, instead getting a 25-yard field goal by Matt Weller to go ahead 10-7 with 11:41 left in the game.

The Bobcats' defense held strong once again on the next Eagles' drive, setting up a 61-yard touchdown drive for Ohio. Ryan Boykin broke a 57-yard run on 3rd and 13 to set up a seven-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Tettleton to Chase Cochran.

Ohio stalled on its next offensive possession, and a 27-yard punt by the Bobcats allowed Eastern Michigan to take over at its own 48-yard line. Six plays later, a three-yard Ryan Brumfield capped the scoring drive and brought the Eagles to within 17-14 with 2:08 left in the first half.

Tyler Tettleton was intercepted on Ohio's drive after the Eastern Michigan, but the Bobcats defense forced a three-and-out. Tettleton redeemed himself on the ensuing drive, completing all six of his pass attempts en route to a touchdown. Donte Foster capped the drive witha  19-yard touchdown drive to put Ohio up 24-14 heading into halftime.

Deep out, Tettleton to Foster. Foster slips the tackle and scores on the 19-yard play with 11 seconds left in 1HJason Arkley
Ohio was unable to get anything going on its first drive of the second half, allowing EMU to take over at its own 18-yard line. The Eagles put together a 15-play drive and advanced as far as the Ohio 25-yard line behind two 4th-down conversions. A 3rd-down sack by Neil Huynh took EMU out of field goal range, however.

Starting their next drive from their own 1-yard line, the Bobcats marched 99 yards for a touchdown. The drive was capped by a 79-yard pitch and catch from Tettleton to Foster. It was Ohio's longest offensive play of the season and moved Foster to 164 receiving yards in the game (a career high).
