Associated Press

ATHENS, Ohio -- Jovon Johnson scored on an interception return and Matt Green kicked two fourth-quarter field goals as Ohio edged North Texas 27-21 Saturday night.

Tyler Tettleton threw two touchdown passes for Ohio (1-1) and Derek Thompson had two for North Texas (1-1).

After Tettleton connected with Chase Cochran and Ryan Boykin for scores of 75 and 10 yards, respectively, Johnson went 42 yards with his pick to put the Bobcats up 21-7 at halftime.

Thompson hit Carlos Harris for a score from 31 yards out late in the third quarter and another to Darnell Smith for 6 early in the fourth to tie the game.

The Bobcats responded with a 55-yard drive that ended with Green's 38-yard field goal with 8:08 remaining. The defense then forced a three-and-out and Ohio ran the clock down to 1:23 when Green connected for 22 yards.

Xavier Hughes picked off Thompson to seal the win.
