Big third quarter sends Ohio to 48-3 win over Kent State

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Nathan Rourke threw two touchdown passes to Mason Morgan in a 28-point third quarter and Ohio raced to a 48-3 victory over Kent State on Saturday.

Dorian Brown and A.J. Ouellette ran for touchdowns of 39 and 37 yards, respectively, in the third quarter before Morgan’s two touchdown catches for the Bobcats (6-2, 3-1 Mid-American), who led 13-3 at halftime.

Rourke also ran for a 6-yard touchdown while Louie Zervos kicked a pair of field goals in the second quarter. Brown led a 336-yard rushing attack with 108 yards on 13 carries and Ouellette adding 91 on 11. Papi White, who was Ohio’s leading receiver when he went out with an injury against Kansas on Sept. 16, returned to action and caught a pair of passes for 82 yards, including a 49-yarder. The Bobcats had a 474-166 yardage advantage.

Shane Hynes gave the Golden Flashes (2-6, 1-3) their only points and lead with a first-quarter field goal.
