ATHENS, Ohio — JD Sprague threw two TD passes and Ohio cashed in on a late fumble with a field goal by Josiah Yazdani Saturday to beat Akron 23-20.

With the game tied at 20 in the fourth quarter, Devin Bass forced a fumble by Akron's Andrew Pratt and Jovon Johnson recovered it on the Zips' 42. Yazdani kicked the winning 22-yard field goal with less than 2 minutes left after Ohio's ensuing drive stalled at the 6.
