ATHENS, Ohio - The Bobcat football team enters this Saturday's game riding the MAC's longest winning streak at four games. Head Coach Frank Solich talked about the team's confidence during its run at his weekly press conference.
Ohio's four-game winning streak is the program's longest since the 1997 squad won six in a row. The Bobcats are one of 18 teams in the nation to have won at least four straight games. The two longest streaks in the country belong to Ohio State (16) and West Virginia (14). Ohio is one of five teams from non-BCS conferences to have win streaks of at least four games. Boise State (WAC) has won eight consecutive games, Tulsa (C-USA) has won six straight games, while Brigham Young (MWC) and Hawaii (WAC) have won five in a row.
In addition to discussing the Bobcats' winning streak, Solich discussed how his team handled the adverse weather conditions at Kent State, the Bobcats' ability to overcome adversity and the fan support the team has received on the road.
The Bobcats swept the MAC East Division Player of the Week awards for the second time this season. Solich spoke with the media about some other players that stepped up against Kent State and what it means to have won all three MAC honors again.
Ohio and Eastern Michigan kick off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4. The Bobcats play their final home game of the season on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. versus Akron. For ticket information, call 1-800-575-CATS.
