Ohio Game at Northern Illinois to be Broadcast Locally

Ohio Game at Northern Illinois to be Broadcast Locally

Sept. 5, 2006

ATHENS, Ohio - The Ohio Athletics Department has announced that Bobcat fans in Southeastern and Central Ohio will be able to watch the Ohio football team's MAC opener at Northern Illinois live on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 3 p.m. ET.

Agreements have been reached with TV stations in the Columbus and Huntington/Charleston markets to air the broadcast being originated by Comcast SportsNet. WSFJ-TV, more commonly known as GTN 51, will air the game in Columbus, and WQCW-TV will offer coverage to the Huntington/Charleston TV market, including Athens County and other counties in southeast Ohio.

The Bobcats are making their first trip to DeKalb since the 2003 season. Ohio has won two of its three meetings with the Huskies since they rejoined the Mid-American Conference in 1997 and three of the last four meetings in the series. A win at Northern Illinois would give the Bobcats their first 2-0 start since the 1997 season, while the Huskies are 0-1 on the campaign after a loss at Ohio State on Sept. 2.

Ohio's defense allowed just 123 yards of total offense in its opener against UT Martin, including 49 yards on the ground. The Bobcats will face one of the top rushing attacks in the MAC in Northern Illinois and preseason All-America running back Garrett Wolfe. Wolfe posted 171 yards on 26 carries and caught five passes for 114 yards and a touchdown against the Buckeyes last Saturday.
