We have reached week eight of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a MAC showdown on Saturday when the Bowling Green Falcons make the trip to Peden Stadium to take on the Ohio Bobcats.
The Bobcats have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Bowling Green Falcons
The Bowling Green Falcons moved on from their head coach and this will be the first game under interim coach Carl Pelini who they hope can light a fire for them.
They come into this game having only won one game, and the rest of the season the defense has let them down in a big way.
They are giving up 47.6 points per game, and if they don’t find a way to improve on that in this game, it will be another long afternoon of football.
The Falcons are led by quarterback Jarret Doege who has been really good this year. He has thrown for 1864 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
It doesn’t matter how well he plays though if the defense doesn’t do anything. If the defense struggles in this one it’s going to be a long afternoon of football.
Maybe they can rally around their new head coach and get out to a fast start.
On the other side of this matchup is the Ohio Bobcats who have had a disappointing season, and they can’t feel good about their chances to win the MAC right now.
Their last game was a must win game for their chances, and the offense couldn’t do enough against the Huskies and they lost by three.
The Bobcats are a team that likes to score a ton of points, and the defense hasn’t been great and it cost them earlier in the season.
They are led on offense by Nathan Rourke who has thrown for 1297 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions. He hasn’t played as well as years past, but he has plyed well enough.
To win this game the Bobcats need to run up the score. If this game is a shootout, the Falcons won’t have a chane to keep it close.
