Rubber Bowl, AKRON, OH
AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Charlie Frye passed for three touchdowns and ran for the go-ahead score, completing a 21-point rally that gave Akron a 35-28 win over Ohio on Saturday.
The Zips (7-5, 5-3 Mid-American Conference) scored 21 points in just under six minutes of the third quarter to erase a 28-14 deficit in their season finale.
The Bobcats (2-8, 1-5) scored the game's first 21 points and lost their lead because of an interception and a failed fourth down conversion.
Frye hit Miquel Irvin for 44 yards on first down, and Bobby Hendry's 1-yard run on the next play tied it 28-all.
The Zips got the ball back at the Ohio 34 about a minute later by stuffing Hawk for no gain on fourth-and-1. Frye scored on an 11-yard run to give Akron the lead for good with 2:22 left in the third.
Frye completed 17 of 31 passes for 277 yards. His first two touchdown passes -- 15 yards to Hendry and 36 yards Mike Brake -- cut Ohio's lead to 21-14 late in the second.
