Watch All Ohio Football Videos

ATHENS, Ohio - The Ohio football team will face its biggest test of the young season, trying to stop Northern Illinois running back Garrett Wolfe, on Saturday. Watch Head Coach Frank Solich and senior linebacker Tyler Russ discuss the challenges of conatining the Huskies' top runner.

While the defense will have its hands full, the offense will also play a key role in trying to shut down Wolfe by keeping possession and not letting the Huskies' offense on the field.

Field postion will also play a key role. Against UT Martin, the Skyhawks' average starting position following Ohio kickoffs and punts was its own 15-yard line. UT Martin had to start from inside its own 15-yard line seven times, including four times inside the five. Ohio's average starting field position following Tennessee-Martin kickoffs and punts was the Skyhawks' 48-yard line. The Bobcats started drives in UT Martin territory six times following special-teams plays.

After week one, Ohio ranks first in the MAC and 10th nationally with a 30.5 yards per kickoff return averge. The Bobcats also lead the league and are 24th in the nation in net punting (39.5), second in the league in punt returns (10.0) and fourth in kickoff coverage (14.8).

Saturday's match-up with the Huskies begins at 3 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by Comcast SportsNet Chicago and can be seen in Central and Southeastern Ohio on WFMJ-TV in Columbus and WQCW in the Huntington/Charleston television market, which includes Athens County.
