BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Trevor Cook kicked a 33-yard field goal on the final play to give Miami of Ohio a 24-21 victory over Bowling Green in foggy conditions Wednesday night.
Miami (6-4, 5-1 Mid-American Conference) moved into a tie with Ohio and Temple atop the East Division and became bowl eligible for the first time since 2005.
Cook made the winning field goal after D.J. Brown intercepted Matt Schilz's pass. The kick marked the first time Miami won a game on the final play since Ben Roethlisberger completed a 70-yard pass to Eddie Tillitz in a 30-27 decision over Akron on Oct. 13, 2001.
Thomas Merriweather opened the scoring for the Redhawks in the first quarter with an 18-yard run.
In the third quarter, the Falcons made it 21-7 on Dysert's 22-yard pass to Nick Harwell.
Dysert was 19 of 25 for 221 yards for the Redhawks. Harwell had 10 catches for 125 yards, and Merriweather ran for 88 yards on 17 carries. Schilz was 17 of 29 for 176 yards for the Falcons, and Jorden had four receptions for 95 yards.
Transfer athletes make major contributions in the SEC on a seemingly annual basis.Last season alone, players who ranked among the league’s better quarterbacks (Ole Miss’ Chad Kelly), running backs (Tennessee’s Alvin Kamara), linebackers (Georgia’s Jake Ganus) and defensive backs (Auburn’s Blake Countess) all started their careers in different locales.
The atmosphere at Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium and potential implications on the national stage set the Clemson-Auburn matchup apart.
The Golden Bears have to replace Jared Goff and a bevy of receivers, but hopes are high for Texas Tech transfer Davis Webb and the new WRs.
