Ohio senior QB Greg Windham completed 14-of-30 passes for 214 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 29-23 loss to Western Michigan in the MAC Championship Game.

Windham and the Bobcats fell behind 23-7 at the half, but they showed heart with a second-half comeback attempt. A failed comeback attempt, but a comeback attempt nonetheless. Twice in the third quarter Windham hit on touchdown passes, drawing the Bobcats to within 26-20 by the time matters flipped to the fourth quarter. They would manage just three points the rest of the way. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Windham had missed his past three games due to an ankle injury prior to toughing out Friday's defeat.

Ohio edge rusher Tarell Basham accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Basham is one of the MAC's fiercest when coming off the edge. Already the school’s all-time leader in sacks, he's up to 9.0 sacks on the year heading into the conference title game against Western Michigan on Friday.

Ohio redshirt senior LB Blair Brown "stacks well against the run and makes plays sideline-to-sideline," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot, 240-pound Brown isn't physically imposing, but he leads the Bobcats with 79 tackles. "Prior to the season I stated Brown was an intriguing prospect whom liked and he’s not disappointed in 2016," Pauline wrote. "I could see him moving into the late fourth round area as Brown fits well at either middle or inside linebacker."

Ohio senior WR Sebastian Smith had four catches for 58 yards against Kent State on Saturday.

He's up to a respectable 36-562-3 line on the year. A Third-team All-MAC selection last season, Smith led the team with 65 catches for 770 yards and seven touchdowns.

Ohio HC Frank Solich was frustrated that RB Papi White (knee) didn't receive any touches in the second half of Saturday's loss to Eastern Michigan.

Incredibly, White didn't even have one offensive touch after halftime. He had six touches in the first half, turning five catches into 49 yards and one carry into seven yards in the upset loss. We think White has been under-utilized throughout the campaign, but to be fair, a knee injury has dogged him.
Oct 17 - 8:35 PM

Ohio HC Frank Solich says RB Papi White (knee) has "a chance" to play on Saturday against Eastern Michigan.

The knee issue has stolen White's last two games. Regardless of whether he can play or not, expect Bo Hardy to function as the lead back again.
Oct 12 - 1:24 PM

Ohio RB Papi White (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game versus Bowling Green.

Maleek Irons and Bo Hardy will tag-team running back duties as they did last weekend if White isn't able to go again. Hardy had 50 yards on 10 carries at Miami (Ohio), while Hardy had 60 yards on 18 carries.
Oct 5 - 12:38 PM

Ohio senior QB Greg Windham ran for 146 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in Saturday's 37-21 win over Kansas.

The Jayhawks kept Windham in check through the air -- the senior was 19-for-36 for 167 yards and a 1/1 TD/INT ratio -- but had all sorts of problems with him outside the pocket. Windham has been a stat machine through two games, currently sitting just below 600 yards passing and 200 yards rushing.
Sep 10 - 6:30 PM

Ohio senior QB J.D. Sprague has left the program.

It appears Sprague will be hanging up the cleats for good barring a change of heart. This spring, the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. The disorder often results in a numbing of the fingers, as blood flow from the neck to the armpit area is constricted by nerves in the upper-chest. While the procedure was successful, Sprague just hasn't been able to return to football-shape. "He is concerned about his health right now," said HC Frank Solich of his decision. "He’s lost a lot of weight, he’s been unable to get his strength up to where he wants it. All of that has had an affect on him." The quarterback finishes his Bobcats career having thrown for 2,219 yards (51.5% completions) with a 10/8 TD/INT ratio. With Sprague out of the picture, the starting job for 2016 will go to either redshirt senior Greg Windham or redshirt freshman Quinton Maxwell.
Aug 23 - 3:53 PM

Ohio redshirt sophomore QB Conner Krizancic has retired from football due to concussion concerns.

Krizancic suffered a concussion during the school's spring game and the symptoms continued, resulting in this decision. Krizancic started his career at Minnesota before transferring to closer to home.
Jun 30 - 11:07 AM

Lions signed Ohio CB Ian Wells.

Wells (5'11/199) was a 3 1/2-year starter in the Bobcats' secondary, breaking out as a senior to earn second-team All-MAC from the conference's coaches with ten pass breakups and two interceptions. His stock rose at Ohio's Pro Day, running 4.49 with a 41-inch vertical and 11-foot-4 broad jump. Wells' college production was marginal, but he has plus size and terrific athleticism and is worth a developmental flyer.
May 3 - 10:16 PM

Ohio junior QB J.D. Sprague completed 14-of-28 passes for 132 yards and two interceptions in Saturday's 31-29 loss to Appalachian State in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

Sprague was making his third consecutive start for the injured Derrius Vick (ankle). He totaled four touchdown passes in the initial two starts, but couldn't find such aerial success against the Mountaineers on Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound junior averaged an anemic 4.7 YPA. Ohio scored just one offensive touchdown in the bowl defeat, with the rest of their points coming via either defensive scores or field goals.

Ohio redshirt junior WR Jordan Reid had four catches for 112 yards and two scores in Tuesday's 48-31 win over Ball State.

The Bobcats have won two straight after losing four of six. This year Reid's second 100 yard game of the year. He seems to have some rapport with JD Sprague, who's taken over for the injured Derrius Vick. Reid had 24 receptions for 326 yards and a score last year. He's already up to 40 catches for 550 yards and four touchdowns.

Ohio redshirt senior QB Derrius Vick completed 7-of-13 passes for 73 yards and a touchdown and ran for 107 yards and a score in Tuesday's 27-0 win over Kent State.

Vick gave it a go despite suffering an ankle injury in last Wednesday's loss to Bowling Green. The 6-foot-1, 196-pound redshirt senior continues to play unexciting, efficient ball. He's completing 64 percent of his passes with a 10/6 TD/INT ratio in the Bobcats' vanilla scheme.

Ohio redshirt senior QB Derrius Vick (ankle) is probable for Tuesday's tilt with Kent State.

Vick suffered the ankle injury in Wednesday's loss to Bowling Green. It sounds like he should be able to play against Kent State on Tuesday. While the 6-foot-1, 196-pound redshirt senior's completing 64.5% of his passes, he's thrown for just 1,734 yards with a 9/6 TD/INT ratio. There's no DFS upside here. Ohio's lost four of its last six games, including three consecutive.
