Bowling Green Bowling Green Falcons
Our preview of the new season of Liberty Football continues today with a look at the Buffalo Bulls game against Bowling Green Falcons on Saturday, September 3. The Buffalo Bulls are back in action, squared off against the Bowling Green Falcons in a nationally televised game at 7: 30 p.m. Saturday.
The Falcons are a historic MAC powerhouse that has won 10 conference championships in the last decade, with a record of 11-2-1 in conference play. One of those wins was against Murray State, which was ranked 334 out of 351 schools by KenPom. The Falcons go into the game as winners of three games in a row, and they have won three of their last four games.
The 2006-07 team became the first MAC women's basketball team to reach the Sweet Sixteen by defeating 10th-seeded Oklahoma State 70-60 and upsetting second-seeded Vanderbilt 60-59. The Falcons carried the league flag for the second time in three years last season, surged to their best season in 16 years and were selected as the final preseason poll. After losing their last two games, the Falcons moved into the semifinals against Buffalo, where they lost in a tight game that went into the final four minutes.
Bowling Green, however, would like nothing better than to spoil their celebration of winning the MAC East, which they failed to do in 2015. I don't think coach Cronin will allow them to process their experience against the Bearcats. Cincinnati did a great job against Iowa State, but they will have to keep up the effort against Bowling Green to prevent any chance of an upset.
The Falcons enter the game 23rd in the nation, which will undoubtedly be a focus for Mick Cronin and the Bearcats. The Falcons are second on offense, third on defense and fourth on pass defense.
The Falcons were eliminated from the CCHA tournament in the first round with a victory over Lake Superior, but lost to Ohio State's Miami (2-0) in the CCHA quarterfinals. The Cincinnati Bearcats will hope to avoid that fate when they face a Bowling Green team they strongly favored to defeat, and a week later they face a match against nationally ranked Butler.
The Bowling Green Falcons "sporting events take place in the stadium, which is located on the south side of Slater Field, north of the Bowling Green campus.
The square was originally the home of the school's football team, which was coached by a former teacher from 1924-1925 and from 1928-1959.
Bowling Green was also home to Chuck Share, who was selected in the 1950 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics. Two Falcons also won the Hobey Baker Award, which is given to the best college hockey player per season. Miller also led the Falcons to two NCAA Division II national championships and three NCAA tournaments. ROOs, served as head coach of the Bowling Green men's and women's basketball teams, with a record of 200 wins in 10 seasons as head coach. Also playing for BGSU were two future NFL players, Tony Gwynn and Tony Dorsett, as well as former NFL player and current NFL coach Mike Ditka.
Bowling Green will also revert to running back Andrew Clair, who was an All-Conference player if he can stay healthy. Bowling Green also signed three-star RB Terion Steward, who could push for playing time in 2020.
The freshman from Cumberland scored a career-high 17 points against Lipscomb and is on track to become the first Bowling Green player in school history to score 1,000 points in his career. He went into the game as the all-time leader in assists (2,812) and assists (6.5). He is the only player on the team to have scored at least 100 points and 100 rebounds in each of his first two seasons, but Bowling Green won't be doing much more until 2020.
