ATHENS, Ohio -- James Starks ran for 186 yards and two touchdowns, including a 52-yarder in the fourth quarter that helped clinch Buffalo's 32-19 win over Ohio Tuesday night.
The Bulls (4-4, 2-2 Mid-American Conference) led throughout, scoring early on Starks' three-yard run. Quarterback Drew Willy led two long scoring drives, the last one ending in a nine-yard touchdown pass to Naam Roosevelt to give Buffalo a 24-7 halftime lead.
Neither team scored in the third quarter. In the fourth, Ohio's Boo Jackson ran for a score then threw a 20-yard pass to Riley Dunlop to get the Bobcats (2-7, 1-4) within a touchdown with more than eight minutes left.
A minute later, Starks broke free for his long run. Ohio was held to just three plays on its next possession and didn't get the ball again.
Jackson was 20 of 29 for 290 yards, one interception and two touchdowns.
