Ohio wins 49-14 in Pelini's Bowling Green head-coaching bow

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) Nathan Rourke threw for four touchdowns on eight completions and Ohio defeated Bowling Green 49-14, spoiling the debut of interim head coach Carl Pelini on Saturday.

Pelini took over the Falcons (1-7, 0-4 Mid-American) this week after Mike Jinks was fired following a 1-6 start this season and a 7-24 record in his third year at the school.

Rourke threw only 12 times but tossed two touchdowns to Papi White, one a 76-yarder, and one each to Andrew Meyer and Cameron Odom for the Bobcats (4-3, 2-1), and finished with 193 yards passing.

Rourke, who added 101 yards rushing, and White also had touchdown runs as did Quinton Maxwell. Maleek Irons had 116 yards on 12 carries to lead the Ohio rushing attack that finished with 392 yards.

Bowling Green scored the game's first touchdown and was tied at 14 early in the second quarter before the Bobcats finished the half with three scores to lead 35-14 at the break.

Jarret Doege threw for 214 yards and two scores and Scott Miller had 145 yards receiving and a touchdown for Bowling Green.
