BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Omar Jacobs threw for 381 yards and two touchdowns and B.J. Lane ran for two scores in the second half to help Bowling Green defeat Ohio 38-14 on Saturday.

Charles Sharon had 10 receptions for 185 yards and a touchdown for the Falcons (3-2, 2-0 Mid-American Conference), who have won their last four meetings with the Bobcats. Lane finished with 93 yards on 17 carries.

Austen Everson threw for 171 yards with two interceptions and Jordan Meyers returned a blocked punt 15 yards for a score for Ohio (2-3, 1-1), which managed only 68 yards rushing.

Everson's 2-yard TD run cut the lead to 21-14 but Bowling Green responded with a 10-play, 78-yard drive culminating in a 1-yard scoring run by Lane.

Nate Fry kicked a 27-yard field goal and Lane had a 22-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for the Falcons, who finished with 31 first downs and 573 yards of offense.

Bowling Green's Steve Sanders also had six receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown. He recovered a Sharon fumble in the end zone in the second quarter to give the Falcons a 7-0 lead.
