Columbus - 
During today's Senate session, State Senator Troy Balderson (R - Zanesville) hosted representatives from the Ohio University football team. The legislator presented the group with a Senate Resolution in recognition for winning the 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on December 17. The Bobcats' bowl victory over Utah State solidified one of the most successful campaigns in the program's history. The win capped off Ohio University's first 10-win season since 1968 and is the latest milestone for a program that has experienced renewed success in recent years. The squad has seen 46 wins since 2006, the most by a Mid-American Conference school during that period. Through the course of its season, the Bobcats managed to set a total of 47 school records. "Every Ohio autumn is marked by great football throughout our state," Balderson said. "Whether it's on a neighborhood sandlot or under the lights on a Friday night, Ohio has long-embraced this great tradition. OU's accomplishments this season have given us another stalwart in the sport of football and that's something we can all be proud of." The 2011 Ohio University Bobcats also registered the most wins among Ohio's eight Division I Bowl Subdivision programs. The Bobcats are led by Head Coach Frank Solich.
Senator Balderson represents the 20th Senate District of Ohio, which is made up of Athens, Coshocton, Guernsey, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Washington Counties
