Ohio College Football Recap: The Triple B’s Roll
By: Alex Marcheschi
The Bearcats, Bobcats and Buckeyes (AKA The Triple B’s) all stomped out their opponents on Saturday and the Tri-State area rejoiced. Here’s the recap:
Bearcats 38, Purdue 20 (Did they cover? Yes.)
Hayden Moore and the secondary stole the show for the Bearcats on Saturday as they routed Purdue in a nice win for the AAC over the Big 10.
Mike Tyson started the day off with a nice interception and the momentum was immediately on the Bearcats’ side.
The Bearcats then went up 7-0 real quick, on a TD pass from Moore to Nate Cole. Then, early on in the second quarter, Moore had a surprisingly powerful TD run where he extended the ball over the plane perfectly.
Purdue answered to make it 13-7, but Moore was feelin’ it and the Boilermakers had no shot. Check out this beaut.
The Bearcats had a comfortable lead all day, and Tubs was ON ONE. He was rocking this swaggy shirt, going for it on fourth downs and telling Moore to punt.
Tyson then sealed it with his third pick of the day, great game.
Unreal showing for UC, they have number 6 Houston looming on Thursday, though.
Bobcats 37, Kansas 21 (Did they cover? Yes.)
Frank Solich doesn’t mess around when he’s back in his homeland region. The Bobbies came out and popped Kansas in the mouth and never looked back from there.
They were up 28-7 at half without a care in the world.
Kansas opened the second half with this nice 70 yard TD, and Bobcat fans got scared for a little bit, but they weathered the storm.
Greg Windham looked extremely comfortable in the pocket and Jordan Reid was doing work once again. They’re starting to develop some really nice chemistry.
Windham even ran and picked up a big first down here. The guy is a DAWG out there.
And for the cherry on top, Ohio linebacker Chad Moore LIT UP Kansas’ QB late in the game. And Mayne Williams sealed the deal with this crazy pick.
Great game, the Bobbies rebound after a week one loss. They play @ Tennessee next Saturday though and the Vols looked NASTY against VT. Never count OU out though, #RollBobbies. I smell a cover.
Buckeyes 48, Tulsa 3 (Did they cover? Yes.)
This one was never in doubt, the Bucks are a powerhouse and any team that steps into the Shoe this year best be armed with mystical powers, otherwise they’re toast.
La Salle’s own Joe Burger started the day off with a huge stop at the goal line during Tulsa’s only real threat to score.
Malik Hooker then threw in a pick six.
It started raining and OSU just killed Tulsa dead and started showering them with a golden hurricane of their own from there. Marshon Lattimore housed a pick six too, right before the half for good measure. (the call here is worth a listen)
It got ugly from that point on and Barrett padded his Heisman stats and finished with 149 yards passing, 55 yards rushing, and two rushing TDs.
The Buckeyes next game is at Oklahoma next Saturday night in what should be a shootout.
Thanks for reading the recap, roll Triple B’s.
