Ohio redshirt junior RB Maleek Irons was arrested on Saturday and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

According to the police report, Irons drove into several vehicles before leaving the scene in the early hours of Saturday morning. His vehicle was found at 3:39 a.m., at which point, the 6-foot, 224-pound Irons made an attempt to flee for the Ohio dormitories. That ended about as you would expect it to end, with authorities ultimately overcoming Irons as he attempted to evade capture. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning. No suspension or external disciplinary action has been levied against Irons by the Bobcats, though that could still be in the offing.

Ohio redshirt senior WR Jordan Reid caught 12 passes for 162 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 28-23 loss to Troy in the Dollar General Bowl.

The Bobcats proved incredibly sloppy on offense, turning the ball over five times, but Reid managed a standout showing nonetheless. The 6-foot-3, 198-pounder averaged 13.5 yards per reception with a long catch of 34 yards. His five-yard touchdown grab with under a minute to go in the first half drew Ohio to within 21-17, but Troy kept Ohio at bay through the second half to come away with a 28-23 victory. This was Reid's first game with more than 65 yards receiving since he netted 93 in a season-opening, triple-overtime loss to Texas State.

Ohio senior QB Greg Windham completed 23-of-47 passes for 315, two touchdowns and four interceptions in Friday's 28-23 loss to Troy in the Dollar General Bowl.

Oh dear. Windham finished out with fine yardage and touchdown tallies, but his interceptions were killer. The four interceptions -- Ohio turned the ball over five times in total -- were far outside the norm for the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder. Prior to that sadness quartet, Windham had thrown just four picks on the season. Indeed, Friday's showing was his first with more than one interception. Windham missed four games this season due to an ankle ailment, but in his nine relatively healthy contests, threw for 1,895 yards with a 14/8 TD/INT ratio.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
