Ohio University’s Undefeated Season Ends

Ohio University’s march to an undefeated season came to an end this evening as the 24th ranked Bobcats were upset in Oxford by the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks 23-20. The Bobcats had nine seconds remaining, and they tried to run one more play before attempting a game-tying field goal. Junior quarterback Tyler Tettleton lost track of the game situation, however, and was sacked as OU watched the clock run out without any timeouts remaining. The Bobcats are now 7-1 and will fall out of the rankings tomorrow. Their outside shot at a BCS bowl also comes to an end. The boxscore from this game can be found here.

    I think the real news is that my BGSU Falcons are bowl eligible! Of course, we still have to play OU and Kent, so there’s a real possibility we’ll get passed over for those schools when we inevitably lose to them, but whatever. It’s nice to see my team win the last year I’m here as a student.

    Thanks for the dedicated post Kirk. Really tough way for the dream to end. I knew that with the rash of injuries and their relatively easy schedule (missing Toledo and NIU and not getting Kent until the end) that the Bobcats would most likely end up losing.
    But to lose your first game of the year while BCS ranked by forgetting how many timeouts you had? As a junior QB? Not sure how that play happens.
