FINAL: Ohio Beats Miami (Ohio) 41-16

The 90th Battle of the Bricks wasn't so much of a battle as it was a beatdown. Ohio cruised to a 41-16 victory in a one-sided affair to hand the Miami RedHawks their eighth loss on the season, and 12th straight overall.

The star of the game was the dynamic duo of Bobcats' quarterback Tyler Tettleton and receiver Donte Foster. Tettleton went 22 of 32 for 306 yards and three scores, all to Foster who finished the day with 122 yards on eight catches.

Ohio's offense was clicking all over and Beau Blankenship exploded out of a slump with 172 rushing yards on 20 carries for his first 100-yard performance of the season. As a whole Ohio amassed 535 yards on the day. The 'Cats D also got in on the fun, smothering Miami and holding the 'Hawks to 240 total yards.

The RedHawks were frustrated early on, turning to three different quarterbacks throughout the game. Austin Boucher struggled, completing just under 50 percent of his passes for 120 yards, a touchdown and a pick, and had a 1.7 yards-per-carry average on 13 runs.
