ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Omar Jacobs passed for 389 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a score to lead Bowling Green to a 41-16 win over Ohio on Saturday.

Jacobs completed 28 of 44 passes with touchdowns of 3 yards to Charles Sharon and 16 yards to Cole Magner. He also scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter for the Falcons, who never trailed.

Steve Sanders caught nine passes for 185 yards for the Falcons (5-2, 3-1 Mid-American Conference).

Bowling Green's offense rolled up 481 yards behind Jacobs, who directed scoring drives of 71, 80, 78 and 99 yards. The redshirt sophomore, in his first year as the starter, has 20 touchdown passes this season against only two interceptions.

Bowling Green held Ohio (3-5, 1-4) to 65 yards rushing on 30 carries and didn't allow a touchdown until the fourth quarter, when Justin Riley caught a 14-yard scoring pass from Austen Everson to make it 34-16.

Stafford Owens scored the Bobcats' other touchdown when he ran back a blocked punt 44 yards in the second quarter.
