INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Tom Obarski made a 28-yard field goal with 2:49 left in Thursday night's preseason finale and the Bengals defense kept Indianapolis out of the end zone for a 9-6 victory.
Cincinnati won for the third time in four weeks, while the Colts, at 1-3, finished with their 12th consecutive non-winning preseason.
The game was marred by a fan who was injured at halftime. Colts chief operating officer Pete Ward said a woman was hit by falling debris when the retractable roof opened. Ward said she walked to a nearby first-aid station.
But with both teams' biggest stars sitting out, the game was devoid of excitement.
The Bengals took a 6-0 halftime lead on two Mike Nugent field goals.
Indy got inside the Cincinnati 10-yard line three times in the second half, but got only two field goals from Adam Vinatieri -- before Obarski won it.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A woman was injured when she was hit by falling debris at Lucas Oil Stadium on Thursday night.
Colts chief operating officer Pete Ward confirmed that at least one person was hurt in the incident. He said she walked to a nearby first-aid station.
The injury occurred while the roof was opened at halftime of the traditional preseason finale between Indianapolis and Cincinnati.
Ward said that at least one person was hurt and that he did not have any additional details.
Lucas Oil Stadium, the Colts' home field, hosted the Super Bowl in February 2012. The fan accident is the second in two years.
In September 2013, a railing collapsed in the lower bowl of the stadium and two men fell into a tunnel near the field.
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- Derrius Vick completed 13 of 16 passes for 192 yards with two touchdowns to help lead Ohio to a 45-28 victory over Idaho in the season opener for both teams on Thursday night.
Brendan Cope had 129 yards receiving on four catches, including a game long 65-yarder, and a touchdown. Daz'mond Patterson added 84 yards rushing and a score for the Bobcats.
Ohio scored the first three touchdowns, highlighted by a 29-yard interception return by Jovon Johnson, to take a 21-0 lead late in the first quarter. Idaho cut the lead to 38-28 late in the fourth on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Matt Linehan to Deon Watson, but that's as close as the Vandals would get.
Linehan finished with 285 passing, a touchdown, and two interceptions for the Vandals.
The game was just the fourth meeting all-time between the schools, and the first since 1976.
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- The season opening contest between Stony Brook and Toledo was canceled due to severe weather on Thursday night.
The first-half weather delays totaled three hours and, after a shortened halftime, the game was stopped just before the third-quarter kickoff. It was called off after midnight.
According to a Toledo release, "The game will not be replayed and is officially listed as `no contest.' Stats from the game will not count."
Toledo held a 16-7 lead after two quarters.
KENT STATE-ILLINOIS PREVIEW
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois is about to open its football season and, after months of turmoil, the team says it couldn't be more ready to go play.
That turmoil led to the firing of coach Tim Beckman last week over his alleged interference in player medical decisions. He's denied wrongdoing.
Offensive coordinator Bill Cubit becomes interim coach as Illinois gets ready to face Kent State on Friday.
Cubit doesn't expect much to change. Illinois' offense will still be his and it will still revolve around quarterback Wes Lunt.
Offensive lineman Teddy Karras believes the adversity could give the team a boost.
Kent State coach Paul Haynes agrees. He says teams facing trouble tend to unite.
