Ohio went into halftime down 17-13, scoring on a touchdown by receiver Sam Wiglusz and two field goals by Nathanial Vakos.

The Bobcats took command in the third quarter with two touchdowns, and added another score in the third quarter to make it 34-17.

But Florida Atlantic wouldn’t go away. In the fourth quarter, the Owls scored to make it 34-24. After Ohio answered on a touchdown pass from Kurtis Rourke to James Bostic, Florida Atlantic scored two touchdowns, the second one making it 41-38 with 4:15 left.

Ohio held on, however, and got the win. Rourke finished the night 27-34 for 345 yards and four touchdowns. Running back Sieh Bangura picked up 114 yards on 23 carries for his first 100-yard game, and Bostic finished the night with six catches for 136 yards and a touchdown.

Penn State and Ohio are scheduled to kick off at noon Saturday.
