The afternoon started off rough for Bowling Green last week, and it ended that way, too. They were dealt a punishing 52 to nothing loss at the hands of Notre Dame. QB Grant Loy had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw one interception with only 4.24 yards per passing attempt.
We saw a pretty high 73.5-point over/under line set for Toledo’s previous contest, but the actual score was more down to earth. They took their matchup against Western Michigan 31-24. The squad ran away with 24 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the victory.
Toledo’s win lifted them to 4-1 while Bowling Green’s defeat dropped them down to 1-4. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Bowling Green are stumbling into the contest with the ninth fewest overall touchdowns in the nation, having accrued only ten on the season. To make matters even worse for the Falcons, the Rockets enter the contest with 264.8 rushing yards per game on average, good for ninth best in the nation. So the Bowling Green squad has its work cut out for it.
