ATHENS, Ohio -- Zach Frazer threw two touchdowns and Jordan Todman rushed for one score to lead Connecticut to a 23-16 win over Ohio on Saturday night.

Frazer completed 11 of 24 passes for 127 yards and threw three interceptions. He threw a 4-yard touchdown to Anthony Davis and a 35-yard score to Brad Kanuch.

Todman's 5-yard rushing touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter gave Connecticut a 23-7 lead. He rushed for 157 yards on 25 attempts, including a 53-yard run.

Andre Dixon added his own 100 yards on 19 attempts to the Huskies rushing attack. Ohio only managed 61 rushing yards led by Boo Jackson with 28.

Theo Scott and Jackson each threw touchdown passes for Ohio. Jackson hit Taylor Price on a 44-yard strike and Scott connected with Riley Dunlop on an 11-yard score.

Connecticut never trailed in the game and continues to dominate against the Mid-American Conference, moving to 15-1 all time against conference opponents.

Ohio had opportunities but squandered most of them. Patrick Tafua had intercepted in the first quarter, returning it to Connecticut's 6-yard line. But Scott turned the ball over three plays later, which led to the first touchdown of the game for the Huskies, putting them up 7-0.

Frazer's second interception of the game was tipped by a defensive player, as Ohio linebacker Melvin Payne came down with the ball. On the ensuing drive, Jackson rolled to his left on a third-and-14 and found Price in the end zone to make the score 7-7.

Connecticut pulled ahead 23-13 with less than 8 minutes left in the game when Frazer was intercepted by Gerald Moore. The Bobcats were only able to get a field goal out of the drive, though.
