#35 UB Football Game

November 10, 2009 - UB 24, Ohio 27

At 3-6, UB's dream season was turning into a nightmare. A three game winning streak was possible, but UB would have to beat the Ohio Bobcats at home to keep the season alive. Ohio drove down the field on their first drive, but a fumble on the 1 was recovered by UB for a touchback. Unfortunately, Zach Maynard was suspended for the first quarter and UB's offense outside of one big play, only managed 2.4 yards per play under Jerry Davis.

In a wild sequence, Ohio scored the game's first touchdown, only for UB to answer on the next play, a 76-yard Davis to Roosevelt TD pass. The next play was a 48 yard pass by Ohio followed by a 10-yard TD run by Vince Davidson. After four plays, a 0-0 game became a 14-7 Ohio lead.

On the first play of the second quarter, Ohio's to receiver LaVon Brazill took a handoff and threw a pass to Terrence McCrae, who was tracked down by Kendric Hawkins who forced a fumble at the one. Unfortunately, this fumble was recovered by McCrae for an Ohio TD. The UB defense solidified in the 2nd, but the UB offense with Maynard was rusty.

Still down 21-7 with 2 minutes remaining, Maynard orchestrated a 93-yard drive ending with a 21-yard Naaman Roosevelt TD reception. UB went into the half down only 7.

The second half continued to be sloppy, with a Jeffvon Gill fumble leading to an Ohio field goal and a 10-point Bobcat lead. UB struck back with Naaman Roosevelt's third TD catch of the day. UB tied the game when Richie Smith intercepted Theo Scott, and UB converted a 26-yard A.J. Principe field goal.

On the next dive, Ohio faced with 4th and 1 on UB's 38, converted, and three plays later Ohio kicked a 47-yard field goal to give the Bobcats a 27-24 lead with 85 seconds remaining. In the same situation as the end of the first half, Maynard drove the Bulls down the field, converting on 4th and 4, and hitting Brett Hamlin for a 20-yard reception. At the 33 with 30 seconds remaining, Zach Maynard threw an interception to end the game.

Despite the loss, Naaman Roosevelt starred in his last game as a Bull. Roosevelt caught 8 balls for 165 yards and 3 TDs. He would miss the final two games due to injury.
