Dayton starting pitcher Josh Smith had a very rare poor outing on the mound. He worked just four innings, allowing seven hits and four earned runs with one walk and four strikeouts as he saw his earned run average balloon from 1.59 to 1.97. He did not get a decision.

Saturday’s Mid-American Conference game in Oxford, Ohio was filled with mistakes, fumbles, interceptions and penalty flags galore.

The Ohio Bobcats (5-3, 4-1) were penalized 10 times for 105 yards, lost one of their two fumbles, threw an interception, suffered a blocked field goal and missed an extra point.

The RedHawks (4-4, 3-1) a much-improved team this season under head coach Mike Haywood, made just as many mistakes as Ohio; threw four interceptions, two lost fumbles, a missed extra point and amassed 70 yards on eight penalties.

The Bobcats were the fortunate team and survived their mistakes and won 34-14 win over Miami University before a crowd of 17,144 in Yager Stadium.

With the MAC football season winding down, Ohio is tied for first place with Temple University in the East Division and one win away from becoming bowl-eligible.

Ohio’s offensive unit kept pounding Miami’s young defensive line for 222 yards rushing. Vince Davidson and Donte Harden, the Bobcats running tandem at running back, scored on runs of 56 and 48 yards respectively.
