2009 Mid-American Conference Championship Game
CMU 20, Ohio 10
December 4, 2009
Dan LeFevour completed 28-of-39 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns to break the NCAA record for career touchdowns, leading CMU to a 20-10 victory over Ohio in the 2009 Mid-American Conference Championship game.
The Chippewas got on the board at the 5:22 mark of the first quarter on a 14-yard pass from LeFevour to Cody Wilson. Frank Zombo recovered a backward pass at the Ohio 36, but the Chippewas’ offense stalled inside the 10-yard line and Andrew Aguila’s field goal extended the lead.
The Bobcats responded with a trick play, with Terrence McCrae hauling in a 29-yard reverse pass from Taylor Price.
CMU added an 8-yard touchdown pass from LeFevour to Bryan Anderson in the final minute of the first half to stretch the lead to 17-7.
Aguila’s second field goal, a 19-yarder, gave CMU a 20-7 lead with 9:07 remaining in the third quarter. Ohio responded with a 36-yard field goal with 5:36 left in the period.
CMU’s defense took over from there, forcing a punt on Ohio’s next possession. Later, a sack by Zombo on third-and-nine forced a 52-yard field goal attempt by Ohio that sailed wide left, and the defense would clinch the victory on a diving tackle by Larry Knight on Theo Scott to drop him shy of the first down on fourth-and-five with two minutes left.
