KENT, Ohio -- Josiah Yazdani kicked a 44-yard field goal as time expired, lifting Ohio past Kent State 17-14 in the Mid-American Conference opener for both teams Saturday night.
Kent State trailed 14-7 for much of the game, but stayed in reach as Ohio fumbled on their first four possessions in the second half.
The Bobcats responded as A.J. Ouellette had all six of his rushes for 29 yards on the final drive. Vick added a key third-down conversion with a 7-yard run to get inside the 30, setting up Yazdani's game-winner three plays later.
