BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- J.R. Taylor rushed for 127 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown run in the game's final minutes that gave Miami of Ohio a 27-20 win over Bowling Green on Saturday.

The RedHawks (2-5, 1-2 Mid-American Conference) jumped out to a 14-3 second quarter lead on a 53-yard touchdown pass from Clay Belton to Chris Givens.

Two Tyler Sheehan touchdown throws and a field goal put Bowling Green (3-4, 1-2) ahead 20-14 in the third.

Miami's Nathan Parseghian hit two field goals to tie it by the start of the fourth and the RedHawks later went on a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended in Taylor's score with 2:35 remaining.

Sheehan completed 21 of 34 passes for 224 yards and an interception. Anthony Turner caught seven passes for 88 yards and Corey Partridge had six catches for 73 yards for the Falcons, including a 29-yard touchdown in the second quarter.
