Something special might be brewing in Peden Stadium this weekend. In August, there was uncertainty surrounding the entire team. A.J. Ouellette needed to show he had recovered from a Lisfranc tear, and the defense needed to prove it could replace a front seven that lost three defenders to the NFL. After five games, there is a pretty clear answer — their record dispels those doubts. Ohio heads into this weekend at 4-1 and 1-0 in the Mid-American Conference. The Bobcats aren’t there yet. But they’re close.
