The sloppy play hasn't stopped for OSU. The last two offensive possessions returned -45 yds. Canfield has not time, and when he does the Bearcat DB's cover their man.
The only way the Beavers keep this close is with some defensive scoring. Right now, the Bearcats are better athletes- mentally and physically.
The Beavers had a whopping 121 yds of offense compared to Cincy's 229 in the first half.
