#MACtion is back, and not quite in full force. Brandon Oliver ran in a two-yard score about two and a half minutes into the second quarter and Ohio took advantage of short field to net a 23-yard field goal by Josiah Yazdani.
The teams combined to convert three times on 17 third down attempts. It has been chippy. Both teams had about 15 minutes of possession in the first half, and traded a total of 10 punts.
So if you tuned in for a high flying 63-60 match up a la Northern Illinois and Toledo circa 2011, sorry, this is not your night.
Tyler Tettleton, Antwan Crutcher and Donte Foster came up limping in the first half but no injury seemed particluarly worrisome for the Bobcats.
Expect a bit more high-flying #MACtion in the second half. Have to love the term. Share it folks!
