SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) The final pass of Tyler Tettleton's dizzying early-game onslaught was beautiful - a 68-yard touchdown heave to Chase Cochran over two defenders.
Ohio coach Frank Solich couldn't have designed a better beginning to a football game. And the end result - a dominant 45-14 victory over Louisiana-Monroe in the Independence Bowl on Friday - wasn't too bad either.
"It was probably as complete of ballgame as we've played in some time," Solich said. "I think our guys played with great intensity and a great deal of heart. We showed we can play a great game against a really good team like Louisiana-Monroe."
