Northern Illinois Vs. Ohio Score Update: Bobcats Ahead 10-0 After 1st Quarter

The Northern Illinois Huskies entered Friday night's Mid-American Conference title game against Ohio as the favorites, but it's the Bobcats who have had the better of the proceedings to this point.

The game got off to a rough start for both teams, as they each committed turnovers in the first five minutes. Ohio was driving before QB Tyler Tettleton threw into double coverage around the goal line and was picked off. Not long after that, Northern Illinois gave the ball back after a ball thrown over the middle went off an NIU receiver's hands for an interception. That turnover gave Ohio the ball in good field position, but the Huskies were able to limit them to a field goal.

Later in the quarter, Ohio got its first touchdown on a 24-yard pass from Phil Bates to Donte Foster. Unofficially, the Bobcats outgained Northern Illinois 150-33 in the first quarter.
