Greg Windham scored his team's only offensive touchdown and Ohio kept Miami (Ohio) winless with a 17-7 victory on Saturday.
Windham capped a 10-play, 73-yard drive with a nine-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter to give the Bobcats (3-2, 1-0 Mid-American Conference) a 10-0 edge at halftime and they led the rest of the way.
Windham finished with 56 yards passing and the Bobcats amassed just 197 total yards. Kevin Robbins had a fumble recovery for a score and Louie Zervos kicked a 33-yard field goal.
Miami (Ohio) freshman Noah Wezensky - who took over in the second half for starter Billy Bahl - made it 10-7 with a 12-yard scoring pass with 4:17 left in the third quarter.
But Robbins recovered a fumble for a score after Wezensky was sacked in his own end zone by Ohio's Blair Brown with 1:30 left in the game, sealing the Bobcats win.
