Ohio U's Hail Mary Answered...But The Two Point Conversion Dooms The Bobcats Against Marshall

The Marshall - Ohio U. rivalry is known as the Battle of the Bell and I give the 2010edition a ringing endorsement as the most exciting in the series.

Down 24-17 Ohio U. had one more shot at the end zone. Bobcat quarterback Boo Jackson found receiver Terrence McCrae in the end zone completing a 'Hail Mary" touchdown to pull Ohio U. within an extra point of tying.

Instead of kicking an extra point Ohio head coach Frank Solich, a Tom Osbourne diciple, goes for two the win. Remember when Osbourne did that against Miami in the 1984 Orange Bowl? Same result for Solich.

The two piont conversion failed and Marshall escaped by the hair of their chinny-chin-chin 24-23.
