Associated Press  |  Last updated December 05, 2011
Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton scored on a 1-yard run with 13 seconds left to give the Bobcats a 24-23 victory over Utah State on Saturday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Tettleton also threw for 220 yards and two touchdowns. He led a 61-yard drive in the final two minutes to give Ohio (10-4) its first ever bowl victory and first 10-win season since 1968. Tettleton was 3 of 4 on the final drive, and had a 14-yard pass to LaVon Brazill on fourth down to put the Bobcats inside the 1 with 37 seconds left on a play that was initially ruled a touchdown. Tettleton scored two plays later when he rolled out to the right and outran two defenders to the end zone. Utah State (7-6) dominated most of the game behind a rushing attack that rolled up 345 yards. Michael Smith ran for 157 yards and two touchdowns, including a 63-yard scoring run early in the third quarter. Robert Turbin added for 101 yards on the ground in the Aggies' first bowl appearance since 1997. The Aggies extended their lead to 23-10 on Smith's11-yard run in the third quarter. But the Bobcats began the comeback on their next possession when Tettleton fired a 44-yard TD pass to Brazill with 3:45 left in the third quarter. Brazill led the Bobcats with eight catches for 108 yards.
