KENT, Ohio (AP) - Dorian Brown and Maleek Irons each rushed for one touchdown and Ohio gained 208 yards on the ground in a 14-10 victory over Kent State on Saturday.

Brown scored on a 49-yard run after breaking a tackle at the line of scrimmage to give Ohio a 7-0 lead. Irons made it 14-0 midway through the second quarter when he powered it up the middle from 4 yards out. On Ohio’s next possession, Irons was stripped by Kevin Bourne near the goal line after a 68-yard drive.

Ohio’s Papi White fumbled a punt with just over five minutes left at their 12-yard line. But four plays later, Nick Holley’s pass to Brice Fackler in the end zone fell incomplete with 3:45 left and Ohio ran out the clock with an eight-play drive. Brown had three 10-plus-yard carries on the final drive.

Brown carried it 12 times for 110 yards and Irons added 83 yards for Ohio (5-3, 3-1 Mid-American Conference).

Holley was just 12 of 29 for 101 yards for Kent State (2-6, 1-3).
