Recap: Ohio U vs. Bowling Green

Athens, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - James Knapke threw for 260 yards and two scores to help push the Bowling Green Falcons to a 31-13 victory over the Ohio Bobcats in Mid-American Conference action at Peden Stadium.

Knapke only completed 20-of-39 pass attempts and was intercepted once but it was enough for Bowling Green (5-2, 3-0 MAC). Travis Greene and Andre Givens each scored touchdowns on the ground and Roger Lewis tallied 100 yards on six grabs.

For Ohio (3-4, 1-2), JD Sprague completed 27-of-56 pass attempts for 325 yards despite appearing to injure his right hand. Sprague also had a team-high of 49 yards rushing. Sebastian Smith finished with 86 yards on nine receptions and Jordan Reid produced 84 yards on six grabs.

The Falcons scored two touchdowns in the first three minutes, with Knapke throwing a 27-yard touchdown pass to Greene and Givens scoring on a two-yard run.

Ohio got on the scoreboard midway through the first period on a 25-yard field goal from Josiah Yazdani.

Yazdani chipped in a 37-yard field goal early on in the second quarter as well, ending a 16-play, 79-yard drive.

Knapke threw his second touchdown pass of the game with just over eight minutes to go in the first half, hooking up with Ryan Burbrink from eight yards out.

Greene escaped for a 30-yard touchdown run with 5:30 to play in the third quarter.

A two-yard touchdown run from Tim Edmond cut into the lead a bit but Tyler Tate closed the door on the scoring and any comeback hopes with a 26-yard field goal late in the fourth period.

Ohio lost despite a 29-19 edge in first downs and a 513-335 advantage in total yards. The Bobcats were 0-of-4 on fourth down conversion attempts and scored just one touchdown on four red zone trips.
