Weller field goal lifts Scott, Ohio past Buffalo

Associated Press

AMHERST, N.Y. -- Matt Weller's 47-yard field goal with 1:25 left gave Ohio a 27-24 victory over Buffalo on Tuesday night.

Theo Scott completed 22-of-28 passes for 221 yards while LaVon Brazill had a career-high 10 catches for 99 yards for the Bobcats (7-3, 5-1 Mid-American Conference), who won their fifth straight conference road game.

Weller's game-winning kick was his second of the night from long range. His 46-yarder gave the Bobcats a 24-14 lead with 10:22 left in the third quarter.

Naaman Roosevelt had eight catches for 165 yards and scored three touchdowns for Buffalo (3-7, 1-5). He became the school's all-time receiving yards leader with 3,551.

The teams combined to score 28 points in a 3:19 span in the first half. Tyler Tettleton ran 9 yards for Ohio's first score and Buffalo answered when Roosevelt caught a 76-yard pass from Jerry Davis.

Davis started in place of Zach Maynard, who sat out the first quarter for violation of team policies.

Vince Davidson scored on a 10-yard run for Ohio, and Brazill and Terrence McCray worked a reverse option for 48 yards.

Maynard hit Roosevelt for a 21-yard TD with three seconds left in the half and for a 22-yarder in the third quarter. A.J. Principe's 26-yard field goal tied the score at 24.

Maynard finished 17-of-36 for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He drove the Bulls to the Ohio 33 on their last possession. His third-and-10 pass deflected off Marcus Rivers' hands and into the arms of Ohio's Shannon Ballard with 21 seconds left.

Buffalo rolled up 441 yards of total offense while Ohio had 384.
