ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Ryan Boykin ran for 128 yards, Tyler Tettleton threw three touchdown passes and Ohio beat Eastern Michigan 45-14 on Thursday night.
Ohio (8-1, 4-1 Mid-American) rolled to 304 yards rushing and 559 overall in its first game since a 23-20 loss at rival Miami of Ohio last Saturday that knocked the Bobcats out of the Top 25. Ohio drove to the RedHawks 7 with 9 seconds left in that game, but Tettleton was sacked and the clock ran out.
This time, the Bobcats pulled away for an easy win. Tettleton threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Donte Foster with 11 seconds left in the second quarter, and Ohio carried the momentum into the second half. Tettleton found Foster again for a 79-yard TD in the third and Boykin's 13-yard run extended the lead to 38-14 with 5:40 left in the game. Foster finished with seven catches for 164 yards.
