ATHENS, Ohio - After playing on 10 consecutive Saturday's, the Bobcat football team enjoyed its first bye week on Nov. 11. Watch highlights from Head Coach Frank Solich's weekly press conference where he talked about how the team used its down time.
The bye week comes after five consecutive victories for the Bobcats, however any break in momentum may be offset by the extra time to prepare for Akron and to let players heal after the 10 straight games. Solich briefed the local media on how his team spent the off week and how the bye affected the team's health.
Solich also addressed the importance of Thursday's game. The Bobcats need just one more victory to clinch their first-ever MAC East Division championship and their first MAC title of any kind since 1968.
Thursday's game has been designated Faculty & Staff Appreciation Day. All Ohio University faculty and staff are entitled to two free tickets to the contest. For more information on tickets for the Bobcats' final home game, call the Ohio Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-575-CATS.
