Southeastern Louisiana Lions vs. Ohio Bobcats: How to watch, listen, stream, and more

So just what happens when a Lion meets a Bobcat? Well, there's only one way to find out: watch for yourself!

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports

The Ohio Bobcats (2-0, 0-0 MAC) are looking to get their first three-win streak since 2012, and are coming off a victory against last year's G5 darling Marshall at Peden Stadium. IN that game, three quarterbacks played after JD Sprague and Derrius Vick both left with injuries. This left Daz'Mond Patterson and AJ Ouelette to carry the majority of the offensive load. No matter though, as the defense kept the Marshall offense limited in key stretches of the game.

Meanwhile, the Southeastern Louisiana Lions (2-0, 0-0 Southland) are the 18th-ranked team in FCS football after dominant wins over Northwestern State and Florida Tech. Primarily a running-based team, the Lions average 344 yards per game on the ground. Their leading rusher is junior tailback Julius Maraclin, who has 140 yards (7.4 yards per carry) for the season thus far. If Ohio can stop the rushing attack, they will surely have no problem with containing Southeastern's passing offense, which has gone for a grand total of 83 yards.

When and Where

Game Time/Date: September 19th at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

Where: Peden Stadium (24,000) in Athens, Ohio.

How To Watch/Listen

TV/Online streaming: The game will not be televised on cable or satellite. However, the game will be shown on ESPN3, and can also be seen on the WatchESPN App. Both channels need a valid cable subscription to work.

Radio: A broadcast for Ohio fans can be found on OhioBobcats.com, or on WXTQ 105.5's online stream. For a Southeastern perspective, tune in to KSLU 90.9 FM's online stream, which can be found on Southeastern's website here.

Odds and Ends

Odds: There are no formally listed odds (sorry, ya'll.) However, according to OddsShark, the predicted score is Ohio 18.7-SE Louisiana 3. This sets the Bobcats as 15 point favorites.

Players to Watch:

Ohio:

Daz'Mond Patterson (FLEX)- Patterson has been the most consistent player on the Bobcat offense, lining up at reciever, running back, and returner in both games this season. Patterson has already ran for 153 yards on only 23 carries, scoring a TD vs. Idaho. Patterson is a speedster compliment to Ouelette from the RB position, and a deep play threat at receiver.

Quentin Poling (LB)- Poling is a physical linebacker that has racked up 15 tackles in a young season thus far. Poling set the tone for the Bobcats on defense last season and it showed, with five sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss. He will helo lead an impressive Bobcats defense that is stacked with talent.

Southeastern:

D'Shaie Landor (QB)- Landor isn't a passing threat, but in the Southeastern attack, you cannot help but to account for his presence. Landor passed for 83 yards between the two games and showed great burst from the quarterback position, averaging 9.1 carries per rush thus far in the season.

Harlan Miller (DB)- Miller has been a ballhawk for the Lions, totaling three interceptions in two games. Miller's reputation as a cover corner could come into play against a three-headed quarterback situation for the Bobcats, with two of those players (Sprague and Vick) prone to throwing multiple interceptions per game.

Fun fact: Southeastern saw the return of their football program in the 2003 season after an 18-year hiatus. The Lions reopened Strawberry Stadium and managed to finish 5-7 in their debut year. In 2014, the Southeastern Lions were champions of the Southland Conference. Here is their hype video.
