CMU football team snaps three-game losing streak

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Tyler Conklin caught 10 passes for 136 yards -- each a career best -- and scored a pair of touchdowns as Central Michigan edged Ohio 26-23 on Saturday.

Conklin had missed the first five games with a foot injury and the Chippewas (3-3, 1-1 Mid-American Conference) ended a three-game losing streak with his return. He caught a 16-yarder from Shane Morris for Central Michigan's first TD and a 10-yarder for the final score. Morris went 25-for-35 passing for 249 yards and two TDs.

Ohio (4-2, 1-1), which saw a three-game win streak end, scored twice in less than three minutes late in the fourth quarter on a safety and a Nathan Rourke TD run. The Bobcats cut the gap to 26-23 with 5:01 to play, but the Chippewas never gave up the ball afterward.

Rourke scored all three Ohio touchdowns on 118 yards rushing but fumbled three times and threw his first career interception.
