Bowl and Conference Implications

Bowling Green could finish in a tie for third or at worst, fourth in the MAC East. Buffalo would be tied for the bottom of the East basement with a win. Neither team is going bowling.

What’s Going To Happen?

This isn’t exactly where either team was hoping to finish up the season, but it’ll have to do.

Bowling Green was supposed to rebuild, but it wasn’t supposed to be this painful for the defending MAC champs. Even so, after starting the season out 1-8, the Falcons have found an offense over the last two weeks, ripping through Akron and Kent State in impressive fashion to close the season out with something positive. Beat UB, and 4-8 wouldn’t be all that bad with a three-game winning streak to close.

All of a sudden, the running game started to work, with senior Fred Coppet tearing off back-to-back 100-yard games for a bad O that struggled all year to generate anything consistently well. And finally, the defense started to show up.

The Falcons might catch a break this week, too, with UB starting quarterback Tyree Jackson suffering a leg injury last week. That means former Iowa State starter Grant Rohach would get the call after stepping in last week in the shutout loss to Western Michigan – and playing a bit over the last few weeks – with no touchdown passes on the year and two picks.

Kent State wasn’t able to do it last week, but moving the ball on Bowling Green isn’t all that hard. The Bulls will generate the yards, but won’t be able to put the biscuit in the basket in too many failed drives to keep up.
