ATHENS, Ohio - Saturday's football contest with Bowling Green is being billed by Head Coach Frank Solich as the biggest game of his tenure at Ohio. In today's video from his weekly press conference, the coach of the 'Cats explains why the match-up with the Falcons is so important for his squad.

The Bobcats have thrown for five touchdowns through their first four games, matching the total number of scoring passes from all of last season. Senior quarterback Austen Everson (Brentwood,Tenn.) has set a new career high by accounting for all five touchdown tosses this season.

Everson has thrown for at least one score in three consecutive games. It is the fourth time since the 1999 season that an Ohio quarterback has netted a scoring pass in three straight contests. No Bobcat quarterback has thrown for a touchdown in at least four consecutive games since Anthony Thornton had five consecutive games with a TD pass in 1989.

Defensively, Ohio is ranked 18th in the nation in pass efficiency defense heading into the fifth game of the season. The Bobcats' are allowing opposing passers an efficiency rating of 98.00. Ohio also ranks among the top 40 in the nation (36th), giving up just 169.00 yards a game through the air. The Bobcats have held two opponents (UT Martin & Rutgers) to less than 100 yards passing. Last season, Ohio allowed more than 200 yards via the pass in 10 of its 11 games. The lowest passing output by an Ohio opponent was 120 (Pittsburgh).
