Ohio Bobcats 8-4 vs Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks 8-4

Ohio Bobcats

Overall record: 8 – 4
Conference record: 4 – 4
Finished 2nd in the MAC East behind Kent State.

The Ohio Bobcats started their season with a win over demoralized Penn State and won 7 straight before dropping 4 of their last 5 games.

Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks

Overall record: 8 – 4
Conference record: 6 – 2
Finished 3rd in the Sun Belt behind Arkansas State and Louisiana-Lafayette.

ULM started their season with an overtime win over then #8 Arkansas, they then lost in overtime to Auburn, beat Western Kentucky in overtime, and beat Florida International in overtime. Safe to say that the Independence Bowl may go into overtime.

Both teams faced only one ranked opponent. Both teams are very evenly matched.


Player Swag: Gift suite, Timely watch, New Era cap, football. (no wonder Louisiana Tech turned the game down)

ULM 45 – Ohio 42
