Game Over. Appalachian State 31, Ohio 29.
Appalachian State downed Ohio 31-29 Saturday in a roller coaster 2015 Camellia Bowl for its first bowl win in program history.
Marcus Cox paced the Mountaineers with 162 yards rushing and a touchdown, but it was the rampant turnovers that characterized this game.
Both teams were in the holiday spirit, gifting numerous turnovers and scores to the opponent throughout the game.
Trailing 7-3 late in the first half, Ohio used a pick-six and a recovered fumbled off a botched snap to take a 17-7 lead in just over a minute of game time.
Ohio linebacker Jovon Robinson then stripped the ball from hands of Ike Lewis and scored in the third quarter to give the Bobcats a seemingly commanding 24-7 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
However, penalties and two interceptions allowed Appalachian State to score three touchdowns in under three minutes, giving the Mountaineers a 28-24 advantage.
Cox then slipped in his own end zone late in the fourth, allowing Ohio to subsequently drive and kick a field goal with under two minutes remaining. Appalachian State quarterback Taylor Lamb then led his team down the field for the game-winning kick.
The win gave Appalachian State an 11-2 mark in its first FBS season, while Ohio dropped to 8-5.
