The Ohio Bobcats go on the road to take the field with MAC rival the Eastern Michigan Eagles in week four college football.

The Ohio Bobcats will be looking for back to back wins when the team visits the Eastern Michigan Eagles in week four. The Bobcats road their offense in week three’s 42-30 victory versus the visiting Kansas Jayhawks as an eight point favorite. Both teams finished with around 450 yards with Kansas doing the majority of their damage through the air while Ohio was able to both run and throw. AJ Ouellette paced the Bobcats rushing attack with 102 yards on ten touches including an eight yard scoring scamper while Dorian Brown provided 68 yards on 12 totes. The Bobcats were deadly efficient through the air with Quinton Maxwell hitting on 5-6 for 102 yards with a touchdown and interception while Nathan Rourke completed 11-16 for 152 yards and a pair of scores. Brendan Cope led Ohio with 104 yards on five catches while Andrew Meyer caught five passes for 85 yards and a TD followed by Troy Mangen with two scoring catches.

The Eastern Michigan Eagles look for their third straight win when they entertain the Ohio Bobcats Saturday. The Eagles come off their bye week sky high following a 16-13 victory at the Rutgers Scarlet Knights as a 5.5 point underdog. EMU held a 374-326 advantage in yards with a 2-1 edge in turnovers in what was a grind it out defensive struggle. Eastern Michigan wasn’t able to muster much of anything on the ground  with Shaq Vann totaling 67 yards on 16 carries while Breck Turner added 33 yards on seven touches. The Eagles were not totally clicking through the air but they were productive with quarterback Brogan Roback connecting on 19-36 for 260 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions. Sergio Bailey was the top EMU receiver with 107 yards on five receptions while Antoine Porter caught seven passes for 62 yards including an eight yard score. Brody Hoying saved EMU with a 71 yard interception return so the defense was the star of the game.
