Why Buffalo Will Win
The Bulls are rolling at will, and Bowling Green isn’t rolling at all.
UB was able to flex its muscles and show of its talent – the best in the MAC – with a statement 42-10 win over Miami University last week. The running game has been terrific behind a dominant line, the passing game is hitting everything deep, and there aren’t enough mistakes to give the Falcons a break.
On the flip side, Bowling Green’s passing game is a disaster, leading to the lack of third down conversions, leading to a tough start, getting blown away by Toledo and Kent State by a combined score of 100-27.
Why Bowling Green Will Win
So what is Bowling Green doing well?
The ground game was able to rumble against Kent State, and it needs to be established from the start against a good UB defensive front. It’s a relatively young backfield, but the freshman combination of Terion Stewart and Trevon Raymore have shown promise.
Northern Illinois was able to have a little success against the Buffalo defense that’s not generating enough pressure into the backfield to be a problem.
What’s Going To Happen
There’s no passing game – Boston College transfer QB Matt McDonald has only hit 14-of-50 passes so far – and the defense hasn’t even been close.
Buffalo’s offensive line has been outstanding, and Bowling Green’s defensive front hasn’t. The Falcons will play better than they did in their blowout loss to Kent State, but they won’t hold up against the UB offensive balance.
