Ohio (10-14, 1-2 Mid-American Conference) didn't get off to the start it wanted in MAC play, but it will look to bounce back against in-state foe Bowling Green (8-15, 1-2 MAC).
Last weekend, the Bobcats lost two of three games in their series against Miami including a 14-1 defeat on Saturday. However, the Falcons have only won one of their last five games, so the Bobcats have an opportunity to quickly improve their record.
Here's the information for the weekend series.
Opponent: Bowling Green
