The Ohio Bobcats came slow out of the gates, but were able to reel off 21-unanswered points in the second half to defeat the Penn State Nittany Lions at Beaver Stadium on Saturday.

But how were the Bobcats able to get it together after falling behind 14-3? Matt Sussman of Hustle Belt says that the ability to come through in the clutch made the comeback possible.

"What they did do, and we all knew this, was Tyler Tettleton converting third down after crucial third down on that fourth quarter drive, which resulted in a sweet fade pass to Donte Foster in the corner of the end zone for the final touchdown."

The Bobcats were able to gain 499 yards off of what is usually a very tough Penn State defense. All in all, it was an impressive statement win for a mid-major program that is quickly rising.
