Ohio (8-1, 4-1 Mid-American Conference) rolled to 304 yards rushing and 559 overall in its first game since a 23-20 loss at rival Miami of Ohio last Saturday knocked the then-No. 23 Bobcats out of The Associated Press Top 25. Ohio drove to the RedHawks 7 with 9 seconds left in that one, but Tettleton was sacked and the clock ran out.
This time, the Bobcats pulled away for an easy win.
Tettleton threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Donte Foster with 11 seconds left in the second quarter, and Ohio carried the momentum into the second half. Tettleton found Foster again for a 79-yard TD in the third and Boykin's 13-yard run extended the lead to 38-14 with 5:40 left in the game.
Bronson Hill had 111 yards rushing on 25 carries for Eastern Michigan (1-8, 0-5), which has managed just 17 points since its 48-38 victory over Army on Oct. 20. Ryan Brumfield had a 3-yard touchdown run and a 17-yard reception for another score -- both in the first half.
