ATHENS, Ohio -- Boo Jackson threw five touchdown passes, including a one-yarder to David Carter with 32 seconds left that gave Ohio a 49-42 win over Akron on Saturday.

Ohio (3-8, 2-5) was in front 35-21 at the end of the third. But Dennis Kennedy had three short rushing touchdowns in the fourth, the last from one-yard out at the end of an 11-play drive with just 2:12 remaining, to help Akron (5-6, 3-4) even it at 42-all.

Jackson then led Ohio on a 10-play, 74-yard drive that ended in Carter's touchdown catch, his second of the day.

Kennedy ran for 123 yards on 34 carries and scored his first touchdown -- he had four in all -- on a three-yard run in the first quarter.

The Bobcats scored on two kick returns: LaVon Brazill returned a punt 66 yards in the first quarter and Chris Garrett went 97 yards off a kickoff in the fourth.

Ohio's Taylor Price had eight catches for 100 yards and three touchdowns, and Jackson was 20 of 28 for 222 yards.

Akron's Chris Jacquemain ran for a score in the second quarter and connected with Deryn Bowser on a 60-yard TD pass several minutes later. Jacquemain was 21 of 36 for 235 yards, while Bowser caught seven passes for 118 yards.
