The Minutemen have been a struggle in the recent years. That once again is holding to form as they have stumbled out of the gates to a 1-3 record.
Massachusetts did grab their first win last week against Florida International and have a solid performance both offensively and defensively to build off of.
QB Blake Frohnapfel finished 32 of 42 for 363 yards and 3 touchdowns in what was easily his best performance this season.
As far as the running game goes, Massachusetts rushed for 132 yards on 39 carries as 7 different players had rushing attempts.
The Minutemen defense played the heroes in this one as they allowed FIU to gain just over 200 yards in total offense. The pass defense was extremely efficient as they allowed only 115 yards through the air.
The Falcons did just enough to earn their first MAC win of the season as they defeated Buffalo 28-22 on the road last week.
The Falcons avoided a late collapse as they were outscored 16-7 in the second half, but a 4th quarter touchdown gave them the victory.
QB Matt Johnson finished with another stellar performance as he went 23 of 29 for 324 yards and a touchdown to his name.
The run game faired just as well as the Falcons rumbled for a combined 212 yards on the ground in the win. Leading they way for them was RB Travis Greene, who posted 119 yards on 17 carries.
WR Roger Lewis was the standout receiver in the contest going for 201 yards on 10 catches.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Prediction
If you like offense, then this is the game for you. Both defenses are rather weak, which is why the total is listed so high. Both teams should have a lot of success downfield passing, but the key will be the Umass run game. They like to keep the ball on the ground, which will be the major factor here.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Massachusetts ATS
Massachusetts should be able to get a consistent ground game working, which in turn will keep the ball out of Bowling Green’s hands offensively. Massachusetts will have their chances in this one, but the Falcons should find a way to pull this one out, close.
