ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Julian Ross scored on a 96-yard kickoff return in the final minute of the first quarter as Ohio dominated the first half to roll to a 52-10 win over Bowling Green on Saturday.
De’Montre Tuggle carried 10 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter and the Bobcats (2-1 Mid-American Conference) scored on seven of eight possessions to lead 45-10 at the intermission. They scored 10 points in the last minute following interceptions.
Tuggle scored on an 8-yard run and then went untouched over left tackle for a career long 70 yards to stake Ohio to a 14-0 lead. After a Bowling Green field goal, Ross danced through the Falcons coverage to the 40 and then broke to the left sideline.
Ryan Luehrman had a pair of short touchdown receptions in the second quarter, a 5-yarder from Kurtis Rourke and a 2-yarder from Armani Rogers.
