Morgan State will look to pull off a nice upset here when they open the season against the Bowling Green Falcons.
Both teams come in off a rough 2018 and will look for a major bounce back here in the 2019 season.
Morgan State Bears
Morgan State had a season to forget last year.
They finished just 4-7 and did not show up at all against their lone FBS opponent. They took on Akron, who absolutely trounced them from the beginning in what was eventually a 41-7 final.
Coming into this year they do return a majority of their starters from last season, but they still not a lot to go right. This is a team that looks to play with a slow tempo and control the clock.
On top of that, they’ll look to lean heavily on their defense that found success with creating turnovers. The Bears defense returns 8 starters from last year’s team and will have to find a way to get off the field, especially on third downs.
Bowling Green Falcons
Bowling Green finished last year just 3-9 and has a lot of work to do entering the 2019 season.
The Falcons welcome in a brand new coaching staff as well, which will offer them a much more aggressive style. Coach Scot Loeffler has put an emphasis on pushing the tempo and we should see the playbook really open up this year for Bowling Green.
RB Andrew Clair will be the back bone to this offense as he looks to get a majority of the work load in the backfield.
Clair finished 2018 with 702 yards on 135 touches. He added 5 touchdowns to his credit and we should see those numbers really rise here in 2019. With how much of a struggle the Bears defensive front has been in recent years, look for him to have a lot of success in the Falcons’ season opener.
Bowling Green last faced Morgan State back in 2011, where they took down the Bears 58-13.

Bowling Green doesn’t have many expectations for this season.
After winning just 3 games last year and being on their 4th head coach in the last 5 seasons, they have a ton of work still to be done.
Still, opening up with Morgan State is just what this team needs.
