Ohio's Luck Finally Catches Up To Them In Oxford

That's about all I can use to explain it. They cheated death for a few weeks and treaded enough water, but Ohio's undefeated season ended in the red zone. Miami took the lead on Kaleb Patterson's 31-yard field goal, his third of the game.

On the final drive, Tyler Tettleton was looking for a touchdown but with 10 seconds left on the clock and no timeouts, he was sacked by Luke Kelly and time harmlessly expired. He needed to throw that away to set up an easy field goal.

That was Miami's first win over Ohio since 2005 ... something that I'm sure many Bobcats fans are aware of. But all good things come to an end.

I'm guessing that the Bobcats will fall out of the top 25, but suddenly the MAC East picture becomes a little clearer: Kent State is undefeated in the MAC East with one-loss teams consisting of OHIO, Miami and Bowling Green. This division race is only going to be wackier down the stretch. So while OHIO may be downtrodden now that the undefeated season is dashed, a MAC Championship is still in their sights and they haven't done that since 1968.
