Bowling Green has one of the worst team profiles going right now. They can’t move the ball that well, or defend, and their only win was over FCS Eastern Kentucky. This one could definitely be over by half time.
Georgia Tech might have the same record as Bowling Green but only the loss at Pitt stands out as troublesome. After squaring off with Clemson last week the Falcons are more likely to feel like a scrimmage than a contest.
Bowling Green Falcons
It not not that long ago that the Falcons were both a good, and exciting MAC program. Last week they lost at home to Miami of Ohio by 15. They are going to need to be Kent State at home just to get a conference win this season and that is no guarantee.
They have a competent passer in Jarret Doege but even though his accuracy is up a little bit he has already thrown more interception than he did a year ago. They have developed no ability to run the ball so it is all on him and most of the time he is playing catchup.
I am not expecting the Falcons to stun the Yellow Jakets in this spot. The only thing they have going for them is that they get Georgia Tech at a low point and they might be beat up after taking on Clemson.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Georgia Tech was a hot underdog last week against Clemson. Nobody thought they would upset but that they would have success moving the ball against one of the best defenses in the nation and that that would allow them to keep touch. That opinion was wrong on both fronts.
It does not happen very often but the Yellow Jackets were actually outgained on the ground last week. They also put the ball on the ground eight time, miraculously only losing one of them, as their offense was a shell of what we are used to seeing. You have to consider the opponent though. Clemson is really good.
The fact that GT gave up a ton of yards and points last week is not encouraging but you have to consider the opposition once again. Bowling Green is no Clemson and that is likely enough to get the Yellow Jackets looking like a team that will still win some games this season.

Huge line here which immediately gets me thinking underdog but the reality is that this is probably down at least three points, maybe more, from what it might have been two weeks ago. Hard to think buying opportunity though. .

This is a ton of chalk but I just can’t see it going any other way. BGSU was a no show at home and the Wrambling Wreck are likely to be angry.
It would not surprise me if Georgia Tech doesn’t even need to complete a pass in this one. They should run right through the Falcons.
