Buffalo vs Bowling Green Game Preview
Why Bowling Green Will Win
Is Bowling Green ever going to prove to the world that the 14-10 win over Minnesota wasn’t an all-timer of a fluke?
How did the team respond after what appeared to be a program-transforming win? Four straight losses including a blowout to Eastern Michigan and a 14-point defeat to Akron.
However, the passing game has finally started to work after years of struggling. The Falcons are getting past 200 yards with regularity, the pass defense has allowed fewer than 150 yards in five of the eight games, and the potential really is there to rise up and produce something strong.
Why Buffalo Will Win
There’s a reason the pass defense stats are so great. The Bowling Green defense isn’t anything amazing.
Tennessee and Northern Illinois each ran for over 300 yards, Kent State ran for 262, and Minnesota should’ve ran for more than 182 it did in the clunker.

What’s Going To Happen
It’s a focus game for Buffalo.
Bowling Green is playing better than it has in the last few years, but UB has a way of struggling to put games away. It needed a minor miracle to beat a bad Ohio team, it beat Old Dominion by one, and the easiest win over an FBS team was against Akron.
This won’t be a breeze, but the Bulls will keep moving the chains in the second half to finally pull away.
