This week two matchup will see the Bowling Green Falcons, out of the MAC Conference travel to Kansas State to take on the Wildcats, out of the Big 12 Conference. Both teams have started the season 1-0 with blowout wins in week one.
These team have not met since 1997.
Bowling Green Falcons
The Falcons played Morgan State last week and dismantled them by a score of 46-3. They dominated this game from start to finish and were never in doubt of losing.
Starting with the offense, the Falcons gained a total of 627 yards.
The passing game racked up 294 yards in this game alone. Darius Wade led the way with 253 yards passing and three touchdowns. The good news is he did not throw an interception.
As for the running game, they ran for 333 yards. Not just one guy contributed to the running game as there were four guys who had 40 yards or more on the ground. The leading rusher was Andrew Clair, who had 86 yards on 14 carries an one touchdown.
The defense was just as good as the offense if not better. I know it was against Morgan State, but this Falcons defense allowed a total of 70 yards the entire game. That is 24 passing yards and 46 rushing yards. Even against an inferior opponent, that is pretty impressive.
Kansas State Wildcats
The Wildcats easily handled Nicholls State last week, beating them 49-14. The score was 28-0 at halftime and that is when Kansas State started to take their foot off the gas. They are playing a better team now, so they will need to focus on playing a full 60 minute game.
The Wildcats totaled 573 yards on offense in week one, which is already showing some improvement.
They had 212 passing yards, which was led by Skyler Thompson. Thompson completed 72.7% of his passes and threw one touchdown and no interceptions.
Kansas State did most of their damage on the ground however, as they racked up a total of 361 yards. They had six different guys run for 30 yards or more and five different guys score a touchdown on the ground. James Gilbert led the way in rushing with 115 yards.
Defensively, the Wildcats looked decent, but there are a few areas of concern. First, their rushing defense allowed 150 yards to an FCS school. Knowing that Bowling Green loves to run the ball would have me nervous for the Wildcats run defense. Secondly, they allowed 276 total, which is not terrible, but Bowling Green be able to move the ball if they are giving up a bunch of yards to Nicholls State.
Their defense did force two turnovers and also returned a fumble for a touchdown so that is very promising heading into this game. If they can shut down the run more effectively, they will have an easy time at home against the Falcons.
