Line of Scrim­mage

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

Ohio has 41 sacks on the sea­son, and Basham has 11. He was named MAC de­fen­sive player of the year, while WMU re­ceiver Corey Davis earned of­fen­sive player of the year honors.

WMU has al­lowed only 12 sacks this sea­son, so the Bob­cats’ up­set hopes could hinge on their abil­ity to rush the passer. Ohio also has the top-ranked run de­fense in the MAC.

“We’re not con­cerned about where we’re at in terms of an un­der­dog and how most peo­ple are look­ing at it and what’s in store for us,” Ohio coach Frank Solich said. “We’re ex­cited about the op­por­tu­nity, we’ll play our best foot­ball, and we’ll see what hap­pens.”
