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.
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.
