The Mid-American Conference East leading Ohio Bobcats host the Miami Redhawks in their final home game of the 2011 season on Tuesday night.
Ohio has won four straight, including a 29-28 win over Bowling Green last Wednesday night that was powered by five field goals by junior kicker Matt Weller and a pair of touchdowns, one passing and one rushing, by sophomore quarterback Tyler Tettleton. On the season, Tettleton has completed 63.7 percent of his passes for 2,649 yards with 23 touchdowns against just six interceptions, adding 465 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns on the ground. Tettleton is just six completions shy of setting a single-season school record.
Don Treadwell's first season at the helm of the Redhawks got off to a rocky start, losing four straight to start the season before winning four of five to pull within one game of .500. That ship has sailed for good this season as the Redhawks enter Tuesday night on a two-game losing streak that has Miami at 4-7 on the season. Junior quarterback Zac Dysert has been a bright spot this season, throwing for 3,141 yards with 22 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Dysert now ranks 16th in MAC history in passing yardage and is 2,671 yards behind Ben Roethlisberger on the school's all-time passing yardage list.
