Football returns to The Blue as Ohio beats Utah State in the final minute

This game actually turned out to be relatively entertaining. Utah State held a 23-10 lead midway through the 3rd quarter, but Ohio was able to pull back in it with some heaves from QB Tyler Tettleton. Bill Connelly breaks down the numbers from the game including Utah State's terrible field position down the stretch.

We will all miss Doug Martin's running style

Second only to Kellen Moore and a tad ahead the defensive line as a whole, I will miss watching Doug Martin and his aggressive, relentless running style. He came in like a breath of fresh air after the tail end of Ian Johnson's career when Ian seemed to get timid. Boise State has plenty of talent to bring in to replace Martin and they may very well be better in the long run, but I'll miss the way Martin punished defenders and broke tackles, rarely taking a loss on a run play. We'll miss you, Doug.
