Dysert launches a pass during the RedHawks game against Cincinnati on Saturday.
OXFORD - Quarterback Zac Dysert became the 78th player in NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision history to top 10,000 career passing yards. His 303 yards against the Cincinnati Bearcats last Saturday night gives him a total of 10,246 which now ranks him 66th and ahead of Eli Manning (Mississippi/10,119). Dysert's current total ranks him ninth in MidAmerican Conference history.The Bearcats defeated the Miami RedHawks 52-14 in the Queen City before a homecoming sellout crowd of 35,097 at Nippert Stadium. This rivalry began in 1888 and Miami leads the series 59-51-7 but the Bearcats have won seven in a row, the longest winning streak in this storied series.
Dysert completed 25 of 49 passes and had three intercepted. He was sacked twice. He ran seven times for a net 13 yards gained.
Ada Bowl 2 will take place Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. at Doyt Perry Stadium in Bowling Green. Dysert will face his high school teammate, Falcon sophomore wide receiver Heath Jackson. Jackson has seen limited action due to a preseason leg injury.
In Dysert's junior season and Jackson's freshman season at Ada High School, this duo connected on 123 pass completions which is still the second best in Ohio High School football history. It was also when Mike Fell became the Bulldog Head Coach and instituted the spread offense.
