Yazdani FG lifts Ohio past Miami (OH), 24-21
OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — Josiah Yazdani kicked a 29-yard field goal as time expired to lift Ohio to a 24-21 win over Miami (OH) in “The Battle of the Bricks” Tuesday night.
Jordan Reid hauled in a 5-yard touchdown pass from Derrius Vick with 11:28 left to tie the 91st meeting between the teams at 21-21.
Yazdani missed a 42-yard attempt with under two minutes left. Miami (2-10, 2-6 Mid-American) drove to the Ohio 45 yard line, but the drive stalled and the RedHawks sailed the ensuing punt into the end zone for a touch back.
After running for a first down at the Miami 33, Vick found Chase Cochran for 18 yards and Brendan Cope for 38 yards for a first down at the Miami 11, where Yazdani booted the game-winner.
The Bobcats (6-6, 4-4 MAC) now have won eight of the past nine meetings.
