ATHENS, Ohio-Redshirt freshman kicker Matt Weller (Twinsburg, Ohio) was named Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week Monday following Ohio’s 27-24 win at Buffalo Tuesday evening. It was his third such honor this season.
Weller, who has the most field goals of any freshman nationally, made two field goals and three extra points for nine points in the victory. He connected from 46 yards in the third quarter and then booted the game-winner from 47 yards with 1:25 left in regulation.
The Bobcats will be back in action Saturday at 2 p.m. at home against Northern Illinois (7-3 overall, 5-1 MAC).
