Bowling Green Wins the MAC East by downing Buffalo 24 to 7

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

Buffalo had twice the time to prepare that the Falcons did but in the end the Bulls were the team that looked unprepared for what was ended up being the Mid-American Conference Eastern Division title game. Buffalo led 7-3 at the half but big offensive plays and a suffocating defense erased that deficit and buried the Bulls.

Bowling Green opened the scoring in the first Quarter on a 41 yard drive which ended on a Tyler Tate 40 yard field goal.

Early in the second Bowling green tried to get a fourth down conversion but the Bulls held. Buffalo then marched the ball down the field. UB went 66 yards on 9 plays and capped the drive with an Oliver touchdown.

In the second half however UB first four drives went for a total of 33 yards and all ended in punts. They were met by a Bowling Green team who's half time adjustments opened up a passing game and read option run that led to two touchdowns on drives of 71 and 93 yards.

On the day Buffalo would only rush for 15 yards with Oliver getting 46 yard and Licata losing 20. The Falcon's front like dominated UB a the point of attack and the coaching staff seemed unable to find any adjustments that could break through.

UB will likely get a Bowl game this season but with so many of it's best players leaving it's doubtful if the team will be contending for the division again next year.
