Ohio takes 7-0 lead vs. Bowling Green after first quarter

Ohio began the game with an impressive drive, going 72 yards on 11 plays, mostly on the ground, ending with a keeper by Tyler Tettleton. It was the first touchdown/PAT combo allowed by Bowling Green since the second quarter against Akron, which was four games ago. A tough Beau Blankenship run also seemed to knock BooBoo Gates out of the game, who was taken to the locker room with an unknown injury.

Offensively BGSU had some nice runs by Anthon Samuel but Matt Schilz has looked completely out-of-sync. He almost threw an interception to Ian Wells on an awful erratic wobbly pass, who tried to balance the ball against his helmet but it touched the ground. He also threw a short pass into the ground. He also threw a pass to himself. That kind of game for him so far.

A Grant Venham punt was blocked by the Falcons' Brian Sutton and set up terrific field position for the Falcons as the quarter neared its end. Other than that opening drive, it's been all defense all the time.
