NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Getting to bowl games hasn't been much of a
problem for Troy or Ohio during the past few seasons.
Winning them has proven more difficult.
Troy has won a share of five straight Sun Belt Conference titles
and has been to four bowl games since 2004, but will be seeking
only its second postseason victory when the Trojans (7-5) meet Ohio
(8-4) in the New Orleans Bowl on Saturday night.
Ohio is making its third postseason appearance in five years but
has never won a bowl game. Coach Frank Solich seeks to change that
with a running game averaging nearly 170 yards and one of the
better defenses in the Mid-American Conference.
Troy features a versatile, no-huddle attack that has averaged
441 yards and 32.9 points this season.
