Buffalo @ Bowling Green
Current Records: Buffalo 2-3; Bowling Green 2-3
What to Know
The Buffalo Bulls and the Bowling Green Falcons will face off in a Mid-American clash at noon ET Oct. 8 at Doyt L. Perry Stadium. If the game is anything like Bowling Green's 56-44 win from their previous meeting in October of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Bulls beat the Miami (OH) RedHawks 24-20 last week. No one had a standout game offensively for Buffalo, but they got scores from RB Mike Washington and WR Justin Marshall. Buffalo's victory came on a 15-yard TD pass from QB Cole Snyder to Marshall with only 0:36 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Speaking of close games: last week Bowling Green sidestepped the Akron Zips for a 31-28 win. 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. Bowling Green QB Matt McDonald was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 247 yards on 29 attempts.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Buffalo going off at just a 2-point favorite. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
The wins brought the Bulls up to 2-3 and the Falcons to 2-3. Buffalo is 1-0 after wins this season, Bowling Green 0-1.
