ATHENS, Ohio - The Ohio defense leads the MAC in red-zone defense, allowing opponents to score 72 percent of the time from inside the 20-yard line. Head Coach Frank Solich talked about the Bobcats' ability to play with their backs to the wall at his weekly press conference.

Ohio has allowed opponents to score on 18 of their 25 trips inside the 20-yard line. Opponents' 25 trips into the red zone is tied for the second-lowest total in the conference. Kent State has had opponents in the red zone 20 times, while Western Michigan has allowed opponents in the red zone 25 times.

The Bobcats have allowed opponents to score a touchdown on 56 percent of their trips into the red zone (14-for-25). It is the third-best touchdown percentage in the MAC. Western Michigan has a 44-percent touchdown rating (11-for-25) and Ball State owns a 47.6 touchdown percentage (20-for-42).

In addition to discussing the defense, Solich gave an injury update on junior safety Todd Koenig (Nanty-Glo, Pa.) and talked about his replacements, freshman Steven Jackson (Austin, Texas) and junior Ervin Jackson (Kiln, Miss.). Solich also discussed his team's level of consistency during the 2006 campaign.

The Bobcats (6-3, 4-1 MAC) put their four-game winning streak on the line at Eastern Michigan (1-7, 1-4 MAC) on Saturday, Nov. 4. Ohio will enjoy an off week before playing its final game of the season at Peden Stadium, taking on Akron on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. For ticket information, call the Ohio Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-575-CATS.
