BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Tyler Sheehan threw for two touchdowns and 268 yards to help Bowling Green beat Akron 44-20 on Friday night.

During that stretch, Sheehan threw TD strikes of 23 and 15 yards, and P.J. Mahone returned an interception 51 yards for Bowling Green.

Akron (3-6, 1-3) scored on its first two drives, but didn't score again until 14:51 left in the game, when Carlton Jackson threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Jabari Arthur. Jackson completed 14-of-31 passes for 192 yards with one interception. He also ran for 133 yards on 24 carries.
