Let's talk some defense

September 18, 2010 - Dana Sulonen

Entering the second quarter, the Ohio University offense (which was struggling entering Saturday) had only netted two yards. That's right folks, two yards. Four yards in the air and minus-2 on the ground. 

It got a little bit better in the second quarter, coming up with a total of 45 in the half (so 47 for the game). The high point of the Ohio offense was when it crossed the 50-yard line for the first time with 10:10 left in the half. But that momentum didn't last long as Vince Davidson fumbled an option toss and Ohio State's Cameron Heyward recovered. It only took three plays until Warren G. Harding graduate Daniel "Boom" Herron made his first trip to the end zone of the day.

Ohio State's defense is too much for the Bobcats. I don't see them scoring if this keeps up.

And the Joe Bauserman in for Terrelle Pryor switch didn't last long. Bauserman had one series in the second quarter (resulting in a field goal) before Pryor was back in the game.

And when Pryor returned, he made it count. The junior quarterback completed 16 straight passes, breaking the school record for consecutive completions. The old record was 12 set by John Karsatos in 1985. On a down note, Pryor threw his first interception of the year three plays after he set the record. Side note, Liberty graduate Donovan Fletcher picked off the pass.


Score at the half: 34-0
