2010 Season Outlook 2010 BGSU Football Media Guide

2010 outlook • Q & A With Dave Clawson How much different has it been this summer? You’ve been here for a year, you have most everybody back, and everybody knows what’s going on a little bit more than they did last summer. Was it any easier during the summer? Dave Clawson: “No. From this standpoint here is whats better. The offensive system, the defensive system the special teams system, the way we train, the way we practice; our players now know that. They know the expectation levels. However that is offset, to some degree, by how young our football team became so quickly. We went from a very senior dominated team to a very young team. So I think the good thing is that if it’s a young team, and it’s new systems, at least our systems are in place. Even the redshirt freshmen now have been in the system for a year. And I think because the systems are in place, it gives players a chance to develop and get together in the summer and throw the ball together and workout together; they now know our offense, whereas last year they only had a spring under their belt.” Having said that, does that now change the way you approach things in August because they know the system, and you’re going to be adding new things; you won’t have to review so much? DC: “No because we’re so young, we have to make sure the freshman can walk before they can run. We’re going to have to play freshmen this year. We just don’t have enough upper-classmen to not play them.” You say freshmen, do you mean true freshmen or redshirt freshmen? DC: “Both. Last year we started 16 seniors. You know, the systems might have been new, but those were all guys that had played college football to some degree. You didn’t have to teach Tyler Sheehan how to be a college quarterback. You didn’t have to teach Freddie Barnes what it took to be a college receiver. You didn’t need to teach Jahmal Brown and Jerett Sanderson the amount of preparation. Those guys had been through three seasons before and in all cases they had played a lot. Now you’re playing with guys, a lot of whom have never started a college football game before. And because of that, and especially with the true and redshirt freshmen, we have to make sure that we practice in a way that those guys can get a lot of repetitions. You can teach it on the board, you can watch film, but for the younger players, doing it is the greatest teacher. So we need

to structure practice in a way to make sure the younger guys are getting a lot of repetitions. So you normally would say that your one’s get two thirds of the reps, and your two’s a third. Well, we don’t even know who our one’s and two’s are at a lot of positions, so we’re going to have to get a lot more reps and have a lot more balance.” One of the biggest changes you made was moving Nick Torresso over to the offensive line. Do you have any other plans like that in mind maybe moving some guys around? DC: “Not right now. That was the big one in the spring. We graduated so many seniors on the offensive line; Shane Steffy, Brady Minturn, Scott Albert and it was just a very thin position to begin with. The one encouraging thing about last season was that we really developed some depth on our defensive line, especially at the tackle position playing Chris Jones, playing Jordan Roussos gave us an opportunity to take a position of depth and move a person like Nick over to the offensive line. And Nick has a chance to start for us. Even though he hasn’t played it for us, he had a good spring and he’s battling of the starting job.” Is Calvin Wiley that is coming back for a sixth year? DC: “Yep, that is correct. He has been approved. You get a sixth year when you miss two complete years due to an injury and that was the case with him and we’re hoping he’ll stay healthy and have a good senior year.” So he might help with the depth at the wide receiver position? DC: “Oh yeah. He’s got a great chance of starting. You lose Freddie, but if we can stay healthy, the depth at that position is way better than it was a year ago. My thing is there is not going to be one person that replaces Freddie, it’s going to be collectively getting Tyrone Pronty back from injury, getting Calvin Wiley back from an injury, having a healthy Ray Hudson and Adrian Hodges. Also Kamar Jorden who redshirted, and having Justus Jones back, this is one position that, if we can stay healthy, we feel very good about the depth we have there”.

2010 outlook • Q & A With Dave Clawson You mentioned that the younger guys are going to play and no matter who they are if they’re good enough they are going to play. DC: “Yeah, last year because of the amount of seniors we had, we really tried to redshirt as many freshmen as we could. We ended up redshirting 20 of the 25 recruits. It’s going to be very difficult to redshirt that many this year. We’re just a lot thinner at a lot of positions. The good thing is they’re going to be getting a lot of playing time. The concern is that we are going to be playing a lot of freshmen. Now, not everybody at a position is going to get to play. If there are 4 or 5 recruits at a position 1 or 2 might get to play and the others will have to redshirt”.

the way through camp, it’s a two headed race. There are just not enough reps with the first offense to get five different guys snaps and I think one of our challenges early in camp is deciding ‘Okay, who are the two’? and let those guys battle for it and then two thirds of the way through camp, we have the starter and the backup. And depending on how much separation there is, I am not a fan of playing two quarterbacks, but on the other hand if no one has clearly won the job, it’s not fair to hand one person the job over the other. So, I wouldn’t completely rule out playing two, but I hope that’s not the case.” And finally, the schedule is what it is, but you have three of your first four games on the road, a pretty good non conference overall. DC: “It’ll be a challenge. September will be a very challenging month for us, but I think the key to this year’s team is this is a team that has to get better every week. You can say they’re young, but by the time October hits, nobody is young. And the one thing is that if you look at our non conference last year, we played Troy who won their conference and went to a bowl, Marshal, who went to a bowl and won a bowl game, Boise State who was undefeated and Missouri. Every team we played was a bowl team. Two teams won conference championships, and this will help us prepare for the MAC schedule. Do we want to go 1-3? Well no, but if we can win as many of those games as we can, when October hits, we need to be ready for the MAC schedule. The thing I gave last years team credit for is they had the mental toughness and the work ethic that even though we weren’t winning, we were getting better, and we showed up. That’s going to be the key to this year’s team. Can a young team have the same type of mental toughness that a senior laden team had last year? It was their toughness that allowed us to keep getting better. We were 1-4 and we had a great week of practice before Kent State, and that’s where you credit senior leadership and mental toughness on a football team because they knew we were playing for a championship and wanted to be in a bowl game. Hopefully we don’t get off to that start but we just have to keep getting better.”

Is there anybody you’re looking at to be the breakout star or a newcomer that people might want to watch for? DC: “Well, certainly I think that Chris Jones and Jordan Roussos who played last season as true freshmen and played very well. We need those guys to become all conference type players. I feel good with Kevin Alvarado coming back and you get Jairus Campbell who redshirted and Dwayne Woods at middle linebacker, who got some playing time last year behind Cody Basler and he’s got to step up and play like a good middle linebacker for us. Those are the guys on defense, and on offense a guy like Alex Bayer who redshirted as a tight end, we need to get him ready to play, we need a second tail back to emerge and be a change up for Willie (Geter). Can John Pettigrew or Erique Geiger take the next step or is it going to be a true freshman? I think that those are things that need to happen if we’re going to have a good season this year”. At the quarterback position, is it the same with the three guys still? You’re going to wait and see? DC: “Yeah. The guy that came out of the spring a little bit ahead was [Matt] Schilz, but it wasn’t far enough ahead that you could say ‘Here’s our starter’. So on the first day, with the first rep, with the first offense, Schilz will take the snap. But other guys will get opportunities, and at times we’re going to have to practice in a different way to make sure those kids get repetitions. We’ve got five quarterbacks and you can’t get five quarterbacks ready so its going to quickly have to work itself from three to two and is going to have to get to a period where, with no later than a third of 2010 BGSU Football Media Guide

2010 outlook • Position breakdown Season Two Under Clawson Begins

The Bowling Green State University football team finished the 2009 season 7-6 overall and 6-2 in MAC play, while advancing to the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho. All of this was accomplished while being picked to finish fifth in the MAC East and introducing a brand new coaching staff, led by head coach Dave Clawson. Gone are 18 seniors, noted by quarterback Tyler Sheehan and Biletnikoff Finalist Freddie Barnes, who recorded 155 catches in 2009, a new NCAA record. So what returns? Of the 85 scholarship players, 44 of them have at least four years of college eligibility left and just a handful have seen significant time over the past couple of years. On the offensive side of the ball, senior running back Willie Geter will lead a group that returns just three offensive starters. He, along with offensive linemen Tyler Donahue and Ben Bojicic will lead a young offense heading into 2010. But the biggest question mark will be who will be under center when 2010 begins? Tyler Sheehan took 95 percent of the snaps since the start of the 2007 season and the Falcons will have five quarterbacks battling to take the reigns of the Clawson offense. Defensively, the Falcons return four starters as well, including three up front on the defensive line. BGSU will have to find a way to replace all three starters at linebacker and three of the four secondary spots will be up for grabs.

Scouting the Falcons

Quarterbacks Lettermen Returning: 1, Lettermen Lost: 1 Starters Returning: 0, Starters Lost: 1 As mentioned before, Tyler Sheehan and his 10,117 yards passing and 70 touchdowns graduated last season. Who will fill in for his shoes will be the biggest talk until the Falcons face Troy on Sept. 4, 2010. Red-shirt sophomore Aaron Pankratz, along with red-shirt freshmen Kellen Pagel and Matt Schilz and true freshmen Caleb Watkins and Trent Hurley will battle it out for the starting role. Of the five, only Aaron Pankratz has taken an actual snap during a game (he threw for 52 yards versus Boise State in 2009).

John Pettigrew, Erique Geiger and Mark Mays will all battle for the No. 2 job. Pettigrew had just seven carries for 24 yards as a freshman and Geiger and Mays both redshirted in 2009, but with the graduation of Chris Bullock, all three will have an opportunity for playing time in 2010. Local product Zach Akenberger will return for his third year with the Falcons and will compete with Jake Thompson for the fullback position.

Running Backs Lettermen Returning: 3, Lettermen Lost: 1 Starters Returning: 1, Starters Lost: 0 The running back position will be headed by senior Willie Geter, who established career-bests in carries (176), yards (705) and touchdowns (9) in 2009. Geter ended his junior year on a high note, running for 116 yards and three touchdowns versus Toledo and added 92 yards and two scores in the Humanitarian Bowl versus Idaho.

2010 outlook • Position breakdown Wide Receivers Lettermen Returning: 6, Lettermen Lost: 3 Starters Returning: 0, Starters Lost: 3 If the No. 1 question during camp is, “who will be replacing Sheehan,” the next question has to be “How do the Falcons replace Freddie Barnes?” Barnes, who caught an NCAA record 155 passes in 2009, is gone along with fellow classmates Chris Wright and tight end Jimmy Scheidler. What the Falcons do have going for them is a handful of receivers that have seen plenty of playing time.

Offensive Line Lettermen Returning: 7, Lettermen Lost: 3 Starters Returning: 2, Starters Lost: 3 At first glance it would appear that the Falcons will be searching for several new offensive linemen for 2010, but actually, most of that scouting was done during the 2009 season. Ben Bojicic and right tackle Tyler Donahue are the lone returning starters, but Blaec Walker, Chip Robinson and Scott Lewis all saw significant playing time in 2009 due to several injuries throughout last year.

Adrian Hodges was second on the team with 46 catches for 417 yards and two scores in 2009. Other players, such as Ray Hutson, Justus Jones and Tyrone Pronty all had moments of success for the Orange and Brown last year.

Other players, such as Casey McHugh, Preston Burrell, Kyle Bryant and Nick Torresso will fight for playing time. Torresso is in his first year along the offensive line after serving as a member of the defensive line since 2007.

BGSU could also have other players such as Kamar Jorden, Jordan Hopgood, Shaun Joplin and Calvin Wiley, all who redshirted last season, step up and fill roles at the receiver position. 2010 Returning WR/TE Stats Name Hodges Hutson Jones Pronty

Tight Ends Lettermen Returning: 2, Lettermen Lost: 1 Starters Returning: 0, Starters Lost: 1 The tight end position will feature some new names with the graduation of Jimmy Scheidler. Senior Nick Rieke and junior DeMark Jenkins are the lone returning tight ends that saw action last season. Reike is the only tight end on the current roster to catch a pass, recording two receptions for 23 yards in 2009.

Walker made two starts last season at left tackle for an injured Brady Minturn and Scott Lewis made three starts at guard in 2009. Bojicic has started 21 of the last 24 games and Donahue started in all 13 games last season.

Defensive Line Lettermen Returning: 7, Lettermen Lost: 4 Starters Returning: 3, Starters Lost: 1 What was a major question mark heading into 2009 should be one of the Falcons’ strengths in 2010 and the foreseeable future. Angelo Magnone and Darius Smith will be the lone seniors on the unit that will also feature sophomores Chris Jones and Jordon Roussos and junior Kevin Alvarado. Magnone recorded 43 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 2009, both tops in the unit. Jones and Roussos both played as true freshmen and Alvarado has started 13 games. Other players such as Jairus Campbell, Dylan Farrington, Ted Ouellett and Ronnie Goble, all who redshirted in 2009, are also expected to work their way into the lineup.

Expect redshirt freshmen Alex Bayer and Nick Tuminello to also compete for playing time.

Both Basler and Schneider were first year starters in 2009, but you never would have known. Basler and Schneider were the top two tacklers on the team, followed by Sanderson.

Other Falcons who are expected to fight for a starting role include Keith Morgan (68 tackles and five pass breakups), Robert Lorenzi (played in six games in 2009), Lane Robilotto, Cameron Truss, Aunre’ Davis and Jonathan Davis.

Question is, can BGSU do that again? Ryan Crow, Eugene Fells, Calvin Marshall and Dwayne Woods are the lone letterwinners returning among the linebacker group. Fells finished the year with 44 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss, while Woods saw some action in the middle, recording 24 tackles and two quarterback hurries. Tim Moore, who played some safety last year has been moved to linebacker and is expected to compete for a role.

On the year, Phillips connected on 8-of-13 kicks and 17-17 on extra points. Phillips will compete with Matt Oczypok and Steve Stein for the kicking duties. The punting duties are wide open with the graduation of Nick Iovinelli. Expect Phillips to compete for the punting job as well.

2010 outlook • coaching staff

Dave Clawson Head Coach, Second Season Williams College-Massachusetts, 1989 Dave Clawson became the 17th head football coach at Bowling Green State University on Dec. 12, 2008.

Clawson Honors • 2007 CAA Coach of the Year • 2005 & 2007 Virginia Sports Information Directors Association Division-I Commonwealth Coach of the Year • 2005 I-AA.org National Coach of the Year • 2005 Atlantic-10 Coach of the Year • 2002 & 2005 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Finalist • 2002 Schutt Sports/American Football Monthly I-AA National Coach of the Year • 2002 Patriot League Coach of the Year • 2001 Patriot League co-Coach of the Year

Clawson brings 21 years of coaching experience, including 10 years of head coaching experience, most recently at Richmond (2004-07) and Fordham (1999-2003), where he combined for a 58-49 record. In 2007 he led the Richmond Spiders to the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision semifinals. Clawson twice has been named national Division I-AA Coach of the Year, winning once at Fordham and once at Richmond, and was named his league’s coach of the year four times in a seven-year span. In 2005 and 2007, the Richmond Touchdown Club selected him College Coach of the Year, and he was an Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award Finalist in 2002 and 2005. In his first year at BGSU he led the Falcons to a 7-6 record and an appearance in the Humanitarian Bowl. He helped direct an offense that featured Biletnikoff Award finalist Freddie Barnes to a nation’s best 155 receptions (NCAA record). Prior to BGSU, his two head coaching jobs resurrected first Fordham, boosting a Rams program coming off 12 straight losing seasons into NCAA playoff participants, and then Richmond, which twice advanced to the postseason. Before that, Clawson called the offensive plays for another pair of Division I-AA powerhouses in Lehigh and Villanova.

In addition, NFL regulars such as two-time 1,000yard rusher Brian Westbrook (Eagles), receiver Brian Finneran (Falcons), tailbacks Rabih Abdullah (Buccaneers, Bears and Patriots) and Tim Hightower (Cardinals), quarterbacks Stacey Tutt (Jets) and Kevin Eakin (Bills), and defensive lineman Aki

Jones (Redskins), played for Clawson. In 1998 he accepted the head coaching position at Fordham, where he became the youngest Division I head coach in the nation (31). His 19 combined victories during his final two years (2002-03) at Fordham were the most wins there in back-to-back seasons since 1918-19.

Quarterback development and pro production have been Clawson staples. Nine times in his 15 years as either an offensive coordinator or head coach, Clawson’s quarterbacks earned all-conference honors, including BGSU’s Tyler Sheehan, who threw for a school record 4,051 yards in 2009.

A native of Youngstown, N.Y., located on the shores of Lake Ontario just 30 minutes north of Buffalo, Clawson played defensive back in football and also basketball at Williams College in Massachusetts. He graduated in 1989, and then began a two-year assistant coaching stop at Albany. From there, he coached two years at Buffalo and three at Lehigh, including his first two years, 1994-95, as an offensive coordinator. Clawson then was named offensive coordinator at Villanova, where he helped establish 70 school records and led the Wildcats to the I-AA playoffs in 1996 and 1997. Under Clawson’s tutelage, receiver Brian Finneran won the Walter Payton Award, given to I-AA’s most outstanding player, and running back Brian Westbrook became the first student-athlete in NCAA history to gain more than 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in a season.

2010 Outlook • Coaching Staff

Warren Ruggiero Offensive Coordinator/QBs, Second Season Delaware, 1988 Warren Ruggiero begins his second year as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Bowling Green State University. In his first year at the helm of the Falcon offense he led a unit that ranked first in the MAC and sixth nationally in passing yards per game (316.2). Standout quarterback Tyler Sheehan finished the year completing 373 of 575 passes for 4,051 yards and 27 touchdowns, all careerbests under the guidance of Ruggiero. In fact, his 4,051 passing yards were only the second time in BGSU’s 90-year history that a Falcon quarterback had surpassed the 4,000 yard plateau. Ruggiero also played a large role in helping wide receiver Freddie Barnes earn national honors, being named a Biletnikoff finalist, given to the country’s top wide receiver. In 2009 alone Barnes led the country in receptions (155) and touchdowns (19), while ranking second in yards (1,770). Barnes’ 155 catches smashed the previous NCAA mark for catches in a season, previously held by Manny Hazzard (Houston) since 1989. Ruggiero has Northwest Ohio ties, having served as the running backs coach, quarterbacks coach, offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for Defiance for five seasons (1989-93). Ruggiero spent the 2008 past season as the quarterbacks coach at Kansas State where he helped lead the Wildcat signal callers to a combined 59-percent completion percentage, 3,235 yards and 20 scores. The KSU quarterbacks also threw just 10 interceptions in 425 passes. As good as the KSU quarterbacks were at throwing the ball, they also added 464 yards and 15 scores on the ground, helping the Kansas State offense to an average of 34.9 points and 402.1 yards per game.

coaching experience to the Falcons, including two as a head coach and 17 years as an offensive coordinator at some of the best offenses in the country. Under his guidance as a coordinator his offenses have finished in the top-10 statistically on 11 different occasions. Prior to his time at Kansas State, Ruggiero was already an accomplished offensive coach who spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Elon, where he tutored quarterback Scott Riddle, who was dubbed the 2007 College Sporting News National Freshman of the Year after a monstrous rookie campaign. Prior to his arrival at Elon, Ruggiero spent the previous six years at Hofstra, serving the first two seasons (2000-01) as the recruiting coordinator/quarterbacks coach and the last four (2002-05) as the offensive coordinator. Previously, he coached the halfbacks and tight ends at The College of William and Mary during the 1999 campaign. Prior to going to William & Mary, Ruggiero was the head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Glenville State College for two seasons (1997-98); the quarterbacks coach, running backs coach and offensive coordinator at Clarion University of Pennsylvania for three seasons (1994-96) and a graduate assistant at the University of Delaware for the 1988 campaign.

Ruggiero spent one season coaching quarterback Josh Freeman, who declared early for the 2009 NFL draft. Freeman was selected with the 17th pick in the draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It won’t be the first time Ruggiero helped coach a player to the NFL. In 2005 he coached future New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston, who was named to the NFL AllRookie Team that next season.

Mike Elko Defensive Coordinator/LBs, Second Season Pennsylvania, 1999 Mike Elko begins his second year as the defensive coordinator with the Falcons after holding the same position at Hofstra from 2006-08. In his first year with the Falcon defense he took eight first-year starters and transformed them into a unit that forced 12 turnovers in the last three regular season games in 2009. Elko’s defense was also tops in the MAC on third downs, allowing a success rate of just 36.5 percent. Elko has six years of defensive coordinating experience under his belt, as well as experience working with BGSU head coach Dave Clawson at Fordham and Richmond. Prior to joining the Falcons, Elko coached the No. 1 passing defense in the Colonial Athletic Association last season with Hofstra, holding teams to just 136.8 yards per game through the air. Hofstra’s defense ranked first in the CAA and 11th in the FCS in rushing defense, second in the conference and 15th in the country in total defense, and fourth in the CAA and 37th in the FCS in scoring defense in 2007.

Opponent Information • MAC Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only 11 football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in the 63-year history of the league this past March. Steinbrecher came to the MAC after serving for six years as the commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference.

Toledo became the first MAC team to ever beat Michigan in Ann Arbor; Ball State won its first-ever game against a Big Ten foe when the Cardinals beat Indiana; Central Michigan also defeated Indiana; and Western Michigan beat Illinois in a game played at Ford Field.

The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to six its number of neutral site post season events – football (Detroit’s Ford Field), volleyball (Toledo’s SeaGate Centre), men’s and women’s basketball (Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena), softball (Akron’s Firestone Stadium) and most recently baseball (Chillicothe’s VA Memorial Stadium).

In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC signed an eight-year rights agreement through the 2016-2017 academic year for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal will be the most extensive in the 63-year history of the conference. The new deal calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regular-season MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games.

The MAC tied a league record in 2008 with five schools participating in bowl games – Buffalo (International); Ball State (GMAC); Central Michigan (Motor City); Western Michigan (Texas); and Northern Illinois (Independence Bowl). The 2008 season also saw the first MAC football team ranked in the Top 25 since 2003. Ball State was ranked as high as 12th in the BCS Standings, 12th in the AP and 13th in the USA Today Poll. The Cardinals were ranked in all three polls for 10 straight weeks. MAC football teams won a league record four games versus opponents from the Big Ten.

Women’s athletics shined for the MAC this past year. For the first time in the history of the conference the MAC sent three teams to the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament (Miami, Ohio and Western Michigan). Western Michigan became only the third team to make it to the Sweet Sixteen (Ohio 2005 and Western Michigan 1983). In women’s basketball MAC Tournament Champion Ball State upset perennial national power Tennessee in the first round of the NCAA tournament handing the Lady Vols their first ever loss in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The victory was

named “Pontiac Game Changing Performance” of the 2009 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, while first year head coach Kelly Packard was named Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year by the WBCA. Akron continued its dominance of MAC men’s soccer with its 11 regular-season championship to go along with its sixth MAC Tournament title – both league records. The Zips were ranked as high as No. 2 during the season and reached the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Northwestern, 1-0. Steve Zakuani, who helped guide the University of Akron men’s soccer program to a record-setting campaign in 2008, was the first overall pick of the 2009 Major League Soccer Super Draft. Zakuani earned 2008 MAC Men’s Soccer Player of the Year honors and was a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, which goes to the best men’s soccer player in

-91- the country.

Tyler Sheehan threw for 339 yards and two scores, while senior Freddie Barnes added a school record 15 catches for 157 yards and two touchdowns as the Falcons scored 31 unanswered points to top the Troy Trojans 31-14 to open the 2009 season.

The Bowling Green State University football team surrendered 21 unanswered points to fall 27-20 versus Missouri in Columbia, Mo., in front of 65,401.

Behind first-year head coach Dave Clawson, the Falcons surrendered a 14-0 deficit early in the second quarter, but touchdowns by Barnes in the second and third quarter, followed by a Jerry Phillips field goal in the fourth gave the Falcons the lead for good.

BGSU (1-1) got on the scoreboard first as senior quarterback Tyler Sheehan led the Falcons on a 10 play 80 yard drive, capped by a 12-yard score from Sheehan to Ray Hutson in the first quarter. It was Hutson’s first career touchdown.

After allowing 210 yards of offense in the first half, BGSU surrendered just 94 yards and four first downs in the game’s final 30 minutes.

The Falcon defense, which played stellar throughout most of the game, held MU’s Gabbert to a modest day connecting on 20 of 33 pass for 172 yards, keeping the Tigers out of the end zone for the entire first half. MU’s only points came on field goals of 38 and 46 yards.

Chris Bullock added a one-yard plunge midway through the final quarter and sophomore Adrien Spencer returned a 64 yard interception for a score with just over two minutes remaining to cap the scoring.

BGSU opened the second half with an 11 play, 73 yard drive, capped by a one-yard score from Willie Geter to give the Falcons a 20-6 lead with 9:44 remaining in the third quarter. Geter finished the day with 99 yards on the ground.

Visiting Ohio University led for most of the day, and dodged a bullet in the final minutes of the game, for a 44-37 win over the Bowling Green State University football team. Falcon quarterback Tyler Sheehan threw for a career-high 390 yards in defeat, in the process moving into second place on BGSU’s career list for passing yards. Sheehan had two touchdown passes on the day. The ‘Cats took a 44-30 lead when quarterback Theo Scott ran 68 yards for a score with just 5:05 remaining. The Falcons cut that lead in half, however, as Sheehan found Justus Jones on a 7-yard scoring strike with 3:41 left.

Tyler Sheehan and Freddie Barnes hooked up for a record-breaking performance as the Bowling Green football team came from behind to stun Kent State 36-35 at Dix Stadium. Sheehan set school records for completions, attempts, and passing yards by going 44-for-63 for 505 yards, while Barnes broke his own receptions record and set a new receiving yardage standard with an eye-popping 22 catches (one shy of NCAA record) for 278 yards, adding three touchdowns. Sheehan threw for four touchdowns and rushed for the gamewinner with five seconds remaining.

After a Barnes 54-yard punt return the Falcons were within striking distance of tying up the game.On fourth and 2 from the Bobcats’ 14-yard line, Sheehan looked for Barnes on a quick slant. The pass was bobbled by Barnes, then was batted by an Ohio defender in the area. Barnes, still in stride, very nearly made the catch as he headed into the end zone, but the ball fell to the turf.

Kent State had the ball and a 35-23 lead with under five minutes remaining but, after punting, Barnes turned in a whirling dervish of a 45-yard touchdown reception, breaking four tackles and weaving through defenders to score with 4:29 left. Sheehan capped the score with a 9-yard run with five seconds remaining.t

Visiting Central Michigan University remained undefeated in conference play with a workmanlike 24-10 victory over the Bowling Green State University football team. Central had a narrow margin in total offense, with 406 yards to the Falcons’ 363. BG had 343 yards passing to the Chippewas’ 147 on the day. But, the visitors had 259 rushing yards, while holding the Falcons to just 20 yards on the ground. The Falcon defense held the nation’s 15th-ranked offense (in terms of points per game) to 10 points under its average. But, the Chippewas were a perfect 3-for-3 in red-zone offense, while the Falcons scored on only one of five trips inside the red zone. CMU quarterback Dan LeFevour threw for 147 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while rushing for 128 yards on the day. LeFevour led all players in carries (22) and yards on the ground. Central never trailed, taking a 14-10 lead into the half and scoring the only 10 points of the second half. CMU got on the board less than four minutes into the game, when Antonio Brown scored on a four-yard run.

The Bowling Green football team came back from a 13-point second half deficit to keep its postseason hopes alive with a 30-29 win over Buffalo. Freddie Barnes caught a touchdown pass from Tyler Sheehan with 39 seconds remaining to give the Falcons the win. Barnes got his chance to shine on national television and he did not disappoint. He entered the game leading the nation in receptions and receiving yards and he finished with eight catches for 122 yards and the game-winning touchdown, which moved him into a tie for most receiving scores in the country. Along the way, the Bowling Green special teams came up with two blocked punts that helped the Falcons’ cause. The first one was recovered at the one-yard line and led to the Falcons’ first score of the game, while the second one sparked Bowling Green’s comeback. With Buffalo clinging to a 29-17 lead, P.J. Mahone blocked a punt early in the fourth quarter and the Orange and Brown scored 2:56 later to cut the deficit to 29-23. After a pair of defensive stops the Falcon offense took over at its own 25-yard line with 2:59 remaining. Sheehan, completing a pair of 3rd-and-10’s, eventually driving the offense inside Buffalo’s 10-yard line. A holding penalty pushed Bowling Green back to the 18, but that’s when Sheehan found Barnes streaking to the back corner of the end zone for the winning score.

Trailing by a point at the half, the Bowling Green State University football team exploded for 27 second-half points en route to a 36-20 win over the University of Akron. Tyler Sheehan threw for 338 yards and two touchdowns, finding Freddie Barnes for both scores. Barnes had game-high totals of 12 receptions and 197 yards, scoring twice in the third quarter to help the Brown and Orange erase a 10-9 halftime deficit. Willie Geter’s 4-yard run midway through the opening quarter gave the Falcons a 7-3 lead, but UA quarterback Patrick Nicely hit Jeremy Bruce for a 10-yard score halfway through the second period. That scoring play capped a 17-play, 86-yard drive that took a whopping 9:27. The Zips stopped the Falcons on a fourth-and-goal play at the 1-yard line late in the period, but two plays later, BGSU’s Jahmal Brown and Adrien Spencer combined to tackle UA running back Broderick Alexander in the end zone for a safety.

The Bowling Green football team blocked two first-quarter punts and jumped out to a 24-0 lead before holding on to beat rival Toledo 38-24 in the MAC regular season finale. Willie Geter rushed for 114 yards and scored three touchdowns, salting the game away with a back-breaking 61-yard jaunt late in the fourth quarter, as the Falcons held off a late-charging Toledo squad. Biletnikoff finalist Freddie Barnes caught nine passes for 69 yards and had two touchdowns. Barnes finished with 138 regular-season receptions, leaving him four shy of the NCAA FBS record. Bowling Green blocked punts on Toledo’s first two possessions setting up Geter’s first touchdown, a one-yard plunge 11:35 to go in the first, and a Barnes four-yard score from Tyler Sheehan with 9:08 to play in the opening quarter. On the Falcons’ third possession, Toledo forced a punt but the Rockets’ Eric Page fumbled the boot and Jarrett Sanderson recovered it at the one-yard line. Geter scored on the next play to make it 21-0 less than 10 minutes into the contest. Matt Norsic added a 22-yard field goal with 1:20 left in the opening frame to make it 24-0.

2010 BGSU Football Media Guide

BGSU rallied back from a 28-14 and 35-28 deficits to lead with 32 seconds to go but the Vandals drove 66 yards on three plays, including a 50-yard strike to open the drive to get within one at 42-41. After a timeout the Vandals elected to go for two, converting in the back of the endzone for the winning score. The Falcons opened the scoring with senior quarterback Tyler Sheehan hooking up with Biletnikoff finalist Freddie Barnes on a 35-yard touchdown. Sheehan would call Barnes’ number 16 more times, finishing with a Humanitarian Bowl record 17 receiptions for 219 yards (both Humanitarian Bowl records), while Sheehan completed 33-of-47 passes for 387 yards and four touchdowns. Barnes would finish the season with 155 receptions, smashing the all-time NCAA mark of 142, held by Manny Hazzard (Houston) since 1989. For his efforts he was named BGSU’s Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl Most Valuable Player. Following a Vandal touchdown junior Willie Geter scampered 59 yards for a score to spot the Orange and Brown a 14-7 lead at the end of one quarter. It was Geter’s second longest run of the season.

The Bowling Green State University football team got a 51-yard touchdown from Freddie Barnes with 32 seconds remaining to take a 42-35 lead but surrendered a late touchdown with four seconds to go, as well as a two-point conversion, to fall 43-42 to the Idaho Vandals in the 2009 Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho.

Neither team would get back on the scoreboard until Idaho’s Nathan Enderle connected with wide receiver Eric Greenwood on a seven-yard fade route with 19 seconds remaining in the first half to finish the first half at 14 apiece. Idaho started the second half off with a bang, scoring a pair of touchdowns in a four minute span to go up 28-14 with 5:30 minutes to go in the third quarter, a spot Bowling Green has seen before an answered. Much like the contest with Kent State and Buffalo, BGSU would have to find a way to rally from a doubledigit deficit, a deficit they would erase in a hurry. First, Sheehan connected with fellow classmate Jimmy Scheidler on a 15-yard touchdown with just over three minutes remaining in the third quarter and then found Barnes on an out-route at 12:15 in the fourth to knot the score at 28 apiece. The Vandals would answer back with a 74-yard drive to once again take the lead, this time, 35-28 with 8:32 to go in the game. A two-yard Geter touchdown, his second of the game, pushed the score to 35-35 and following a stop by the BGSU defense Sheehan and the Falcons marched 80 yards to take a 42-35 lead with 32 seconds remaining before the final winning drive by Idaho.

BGSU History


BGSU History • Falcon Tradition Franklin Skibbie scored the first touchdown with BG’s only points in the 10-6 loss to Findlay in the 1920 season opener. That team would post a 7-0 win over Kent State Normal College (Kent State) in the season finale to record the first win.

Scott Mruczkowski and Mike Thaler celebrate the Falcons’ 28-24 Motor City Bowl win over Northwestern in 2003. It marked the first-time in MAC history that a league school ever faced a Big Ten opponent in the post-season.

Since Frederick G. Beyerman, an instructor in the physical education department and the first athletic director, announced in July, 1919 that Bowling Green State Normal College would field an intercollegiate football team, a rich tradition has developed. From that very first team, to the first squad to go unbeaten in 1928, to the first perfect record of the 1959 national college division champions, to, most recently, back-to-back seasons of nationally ranked division IA football. From former head coach Warren Steller, to Max Minnich, the first BGSU player to be drafted by a professional team, to Fred Durig, the first All-America selection, to legendary head coach Doyt Perry, to Paul Miles, the only football player ever to have his jersey retired, to Dave Preston, the career rushing leader, to record-setting quarterback Brian McClure, to head coach Dave Clawson, to Freddie Barne a 2009 Biletnikoff Finalist and NCAA record holder for catches in a season (155) the Bowling Green State University football program has a tradition as rich as any in the Mid-American Conference, and many programs nationally.

The 1921 squad was the first to win a conference title capturing the Northwest Conference championship with wins over Defiance, Findlay, and Toledo. BG posted a shutout of Findlay, scoring a school-record 151 points in one of the most talked-about games in school history. In the season opener against Kent State, played behind what is now Ridge Street School, the Falcons played possibly the quietest game in school history when all fans were prohibited from making noise because of an illness in the neighborhood. The following season, BG held its first homecoming game on Nov. 4, 1922, which was played at the Fairgrounds. Bowling Green and Toledo battled to a 6-6 deadlock. After having a different coach in each of its first five seasons, Warren Steller was selected to coach the 1924 squad, the beginning of a very successful 11-year tenure, the second-longest in school history. Steller was the first BGSU head coach to have an assistant when Paul Landis was hired in 1925.

Brian McClure is one of only two players in MAC history (both from BG) to earn league MVP honors twice.

Led by Chet Chapman, the first BG player to earn first team All-Ohio honors, the 1928 team posted the first unbeaten record while allowing just 18 points in seven games. In 1936, the federal government offered to help Bowling Green financially in the construction of a new football stadium and the Trustees accepted the offer. University Stadium was dedicated on Oct. 23, 1937 and served as the home of Falcon football until 1966 when Doyt L. Perry Stadium was built. University Stadium was located in what is now the center of campus directly west of Jerome Library.

Since 19 of the 30 males enrolled at Normal College banded together to form that first team, many different people, players, and games have combined to mold the lore of football at BGSU. The following paragraphs will touch on many of the people and games which carved the Falcon football history. The program got off to a rocky start losing its first seven games played. 2010 BGSU Football Media Guide

BGSU History • Falcon Tradition After back-to-back losing seasons in 1953 and 1954, Doyt Perry began his legendary career as the Falcon head coach in 1955 and made an immediate impact. BG posted a 7-1-1 record, scoring 224 points while allowing only 53. This came on the heels of a 2-7 record the previous season. Per r y, whose teams never lost more than two games in any of his 10 One of the most significant wins in school history was the 17-13 victory over 18th-ranked seasons, led his 1959 squad Purdue in 1972. A fourth quarter field goal by Don Taylor was the difference for Coach Don to the first perfect record Nehlen and his Falcons. in school history at 9-0-0. In the process, the Falcons Express Airport after a 1960 game against BG. were named the mythical small college national champions by the Washington, D.C. Touchdown The game netted $170,000 for the memorial Club. fund. BG’s closest game that season was a MidAmerican Conference victory at Ohio University by a 13-9 count to wrap up the perfect season and national honor.

Urban Meyer served as head coach for the Falcons in 2001 and 2002 and guided BGSU to a 17-6 record and a No. 16 ranking in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll in 2002.

The following season, BG came within one game of repeating as national champions losing only a 14-7 decision to OU at home as the Bobcats claimed top national honors.

In 1941, Robert Whittaker was named the head coach at Bowling Green after compiling an 11-year record of 89-19-2 at Sandusky High School. Whittaker’s first of his 14 teams (the longest tenure in school history) tied Case Western Reserve for the Ohio Conference title and was thought to be one of the best teams ever, scoring 173 while allowing just 40.

In 1961, Bowling Green played in its first bowl game, the Mercy Bowl at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The game against Fresno State was played to raise money to help defray the expenses of the families of 16 members of the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo football team who perished in a plane crash shortly after takeoff from Toledo

The arrival of a skinny, much-heralded quarterback from Ravenna, Ohio in 1982 signaled the beginning of an 11-year period in which the Falcons would make four bowl appearances. The quarterback was Brian McClure and all he would do in the next four seasons was lead the Falcons to a 34-12 record, a 19-1 record at home, two bowl games, and become only the second quarterback in NCAA history to pass for over 10,000 yards. He became the starter in the third game of his freshman season, and despite missing the last two games of the regular season, he became the first freshman to be named a first-team all-league quarterback.

On Oct. 24 and 25, 2003, ESPN’s College Gameday made its home south of Doyt L. Perry Stadium. That marked the first time in MAC history that the nation’s most watched college football pre-game show visited a league venue.

BGSU History • Falcon Tradition Buffalo and Temple, surpassing their victory total of the previous year.

BGSU posted its first winning season since 1994 when it reeled off three straight wins to end the season. The Falcons’ 43-42 victory at Northwestern made them the first MAC team to ever defeat three teams from BCS conferences in a single season. The Falcons ended the season six days later with a 56-21 pasting of MAC Champion Toledo. In 2002, BGSU roared to an 8-0 start including wins over Missouri and Kansas and were ranked in both the AP and Coaches polls at the same time for the first time in school history.

Paul Miles is second on the BG career rushing list with 3,238 yards while he is also the only football player to have his number retired. At the time of his graduation, he was only the third running back in NCAA history to rush for 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons.

He would rewrite the BG and MAC record books before his career was over, setting five NCAA records as well. McClure still holds numerous school and MAC records. In 1991, Gary Blackney was tabbed as the 14th head football coach, and much like the arrival of McClure, he made an immediate impact on the program. In his first season, he took a team which compiled a 3-5-2 mark the previous season and molded them into an 11-1 squad, going undefeated in the MAC while winning the program’s first bowl game.

Meyer’s offensive coordinator, Gregg Brandon, took over as head coach in December, 2002, and guided the Falcons to their first-ever MAC West title and Motor City Bowl Championship and finished ranked in the top 25 (No. 23) in both major polls at the end of a season for the first-time in school history. One player who links Blackney, Meyer and Brandon was All-American quarterback Josh Harris. The Westerville, Ohio native came to BGSU with the intention of sitting out the 2000 season as a redshirt, but was pressed into duty when injuries decimated the Falcon backfield. Serving as a running back and kick returner for the bulk of the season, Harris showed signs of greatness in glimpses and even started his first career game on ESPN against Toledo. Meyer took over the program the following season and inserted Harris into the starting

The following season was more of the same as the Falcons were again perfect in league play and a win over Nevada in the first Las Vegas Bowl made it back-to-back bowl victories. The 1993 squad would extend the conference winning streak to a league-record 19 games while going unbeaten in the first 22 MAC games of Blackney’s tenure. Urban Meyer took over the reins of the Falcon program in 2001 and engineered the top turnaround in Division IA. The Falcons opened the Meyer era with an impressive road win at Missouri and followed that up with wins over

lineup for good in the ninth game of the season and watched his team win 11 straight games over the next two seasons and earn its first national ranking since 1985. The Motor City Bowl MVP guided the Falcons to a 6-1 record in three seasons as a starter against BCS competition. The 2003 season gave BGSU its highest national profile and elevated the program to new heights. Longtime Falcon fans have viewed the program’s 1972 win over the Boilermakers as one of the biggest in BGSU history. Well, lightning strikes twice. While Purdue entered the day with a No. 16 national ranking and visions of BCS aspirations dancing in their heads, the Falcons were able to keep it close and the Falcons converted twice on fourth down,

BGSU History • Falcon Tradition

All-American quarterback Josh Harris takes a 48-yard TD pass from Cole Magner in the Falcons’ 2003 win over Toledo. Harris was responsible for more than 100 TDs during his career.

prevailed 34-18 in just the second-ever regular season meeting between two nationally-ranked MAC schools. The Falcons would spend the next seven weeks in both national polls and were ranked 24th in the final BCS standings.

The Falcons were back into the national spotlight with a No. 23 ranking by the AP and a showdown with undefeated and No. 12 Northern Illinois showed so much promise that ESPN’s College Gameday made Bowling Green its home for the weekend. For the first time in 20 years, Doyt Perry Stadium was sold out and the game was shown on ESPN2.

In what would be the most meaningful game in the history of the BGSU/Toledo rivalry, a national TV audience and another sellout crowd would witness the first meeting in which the two schools played the final game of the regular season for an outright championship.

All-American Janssen Patton set an NCAA record by picking off three passes in a game for the third time in his career and Harris directed the BGSU offense flawlessly as the Falcons

The Falcons rallied in the fourth quarter in front of a second home sellout crowd to post a 31-23 win over arch rival Toledo. That would secure the Falcons’ first-ever MAC Championship game appearance at home against No. 12 Miami.

Tyler Sheehan finished his career with a 64.7 percent completion percentage, best in school history, while adding 10,117 yards and 70 touchdowns in three years as the Falcons’ starting QB.

In the MAC’s first-ever battle with the Big Ten in post-season play, Harris earned MVP honors completing a bowl record 38 passes as the Falcons posted a 28-24 win over Northwestern. The victory allowed the Falcons to finish a season in both the AP and Coaches polls for the first time in school history. In 2004, BGSU once again enjoyed the national spotlight when they opened the season on the road at Oklahoma in a game that was televised by ABC. While the Falcons fell 40-24 to a team which would play for the national title, a new era was ushered in that day. Sophomore quarterback Omar Jacobs, in his first collegiate start, would hold his own that day with Heisman Trophy winner Jason White. Jacobs would go on to earn All-American honors and MAC Offensive Player of the Year recognition after throwing for a national best 41 TD passes. He completed 309-of-462 passes for a BGSU record 4,002 yards. Following a 1-2 start, BGSU erupted for a 70-16 victory at Temple, won their next seven games, and were ranked by both AP and ESPN for the third straight year.

BGSU History • Year-by-Year Records BGSU would earn its second straight bowl berth and played Memphis in the GMAC Bowl. In its first game ever against a Conference USA opponent, Jacobs would throw for five TDs and 365 yards and the Falcon defense would limit the Tigers to seven points in the second half as BGSU won 52-35. The Falcons were one of a MAC record five teams selected to participate in a post-season contest. BGSU began the 2005 season ranked 23rd by Sports Illustrated and Jacobs was featured in ESPN The Magazine. In 2007, the Falcons were picked to finish fifth in the Mid-American Conference East preseason polls, but following a 32-31 win over Minnesota to open the season, the Falcons rolled to a MAC East co-Division Championship, going 6-2, and advancing to their third bowl appearence in five seasons, finishing 2007 with an 8-5 record. Like 2007, in 2008 the Falcons opened the season with a bang, downing No. 25 Pittsburgh, 27-17, the Falcons’ first win over a ranked team since 2003. The same season the Orange and Brown hosted Minnesota, the first time in school history that a Big Ten team ventured into Doyt Perry Stadium. BGSU finished the 2008 season with a 6-6 record, ushering in a new era with the hiring of Dave Clawson on Dec. 12, 2008. Clawson’s first year will be a memorable one, opening the year with a 31-14 win versus Troy, while finishing 6-2 in the MAC and advancing to the 2009 Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho. Clawson helped lead an offense that helped Freddie Barnes record 155 catches in 13 games, a new NCAA record, breaking the old mark of 142, held by Manny Hazard (Houston) since 1989. Barnes’ top moment came on Oct. 10, 2009 at Kent State when he caught 22 passes for 278 yards, one catch shy of the all-time NCAA record. Barnes rode the NCAA record all the way to a Fred Biletnikoff Award finalist, given to the nation’s top wide receiver.

All-American wide receiver Freddie Barnes caught 155 passes in 2009, smashing the previous NCAA mark (142) for catches in a season.

BGSU History • Bowl Games BGSU BOWL GAME HISTORY

defeated champion of the California Collegiate Athletic Association, met at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Playing before its largest crowd in school history, the Falcons, six-point favorites, were guilty, uncharacteristically, of six turnovers, which was the difference in the game. BG’s defense, which was ranked fourth in the nation, yielded 468 yards, 196 more than it had given up to any opponent during the season. Quarterbacks Beau Carter and Jon Anabo were thorns in BG’s side all day passing for 368 yards and two touchdowns. Carter ran for two scores, also. BG scored its only points early in the second stanza on the two-yard run by Ray Bell which was set up on a long pass play between Larry Smith and quarterback Jim Potts. BG fumbled on its next two possessions with FSU turning the second miscue into a touchdown on a long pass play. Bowling Green did have a pass dropped in the end zone as the first half ended which would have given them the lead. Fresno State then scored 1:44 apart midway through the third period to put the game away, the second score set up by a fumbled snap on an attempted punt.The contest netted $170,000 for the memorial fund which aided the survivors and the relatives of the victims of the plane crash. Cal Poly SLO had played at Bowling Green the afternoon before the crash.

After a full week of events leading up to the meeting with the Pacific Coast Athletic Association champion Fresno State, the Falcons entered the game against the Bulldogs a two-touchdown underdog. The Falcons also had to contend with a partisan sea of red squeezed into Bulldog Stadium, the home of Fresno State. But, the Falcons drew first blood converting a Jac Tomasello intercep-

The Falcons took a 14-0 lead to the locker room after driving 73 yards on their next possession. Sophomore quarterback Brian McClure connected with John Meek on the scoring play. BG looked to be in the driver’s seat after McClure connected with Shawn Potts from five yards out in the third stanza. But, Fresno State answered BG’s score with their first of the contest later in the quarter. Bowling Green came right back as Potts picked up a fumble by receiver Greg Taylor at the five-yard line and ran it in to put the Falcons back up by three touchdowns. With Fresno State pinned back on its own 20-yard line and facing a third-and-ten, a Falcon stop might have put the final nail in the Fresno State coffin. But, FSU gained 15 yards on the third-down play and the comeback was on. With future NFL receiver Stephone Paige running and catching a pass for a touchdown, FSU closed to within six points with three minutes left.

This third quarter fumble recovery by Stu Tolle set up the third Falcon touchdown giving the Falcons a 21-0 lead over Fresno State in the 1982 California Bowl.

BG used up just 1:05 of the clock on its next possession and FSU moved 45 yards in eight plays with Jeff Tedford finding Vince Wesson over the middle with 11 seconds left. Scott Darrow’s PAT was the deciding point. BG gained just 26 yards on nine plays in the fourth quarter while FSU gained 220 of its 453 yards in the final 15 minutes.

An indication of what was ahead for the Falcons in the game came early in the first quarter when, trailing 7-0, they drove to the Bulldog one-yard line where they fumbled the ball away in the end zone, the first of five on the day and the same number they had committed in the first 11 games of the season. Fresno State would score the next 37 points before BG would hit paydirt.

Not even being a double-digit underdog against Fresno State could keep the Falcons from completing its storybook season under first-year head coach Gary Blackney. And the script for this game was all Hollywood. The first quarter would have led the fans to believe it might take 40 or 50 points to win the game as the Falcons scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and the Bulldogs would get one of those back before the quarter was over. The scoring continued early in the second stanza as BG’s Erik White and Mark Szlachcic hooked up for a second time. But, FSU came right back on their next possession with Anthony Daigle running 57 yards to cut the deficit in half going to the lockerroom. The defenses took over in the third quarter, each allowing just 65 yards total offense. Late in the quarter, FSU placekicker Derek Mahoney missed a 26yard field goal, the most significant scoring opportunity of the quarter. BG scored early in the final stanza moving 80 yards after the missed field goal to build another 14-point lead. FSU came right back to score, driving 71 yards as quarterback Mark Barsotti completed five-of-six passes, connecting with tight end Marty Thompson from five yards out. After three changes of possession, FSU started the final drive of the game from their one-yard line, after an interception, with 2:29 remaining. FSU used its last time out with 24 seconds left and the Bulldogs just nine yards away from the needed touchdown. After a running play for six yards and two incomplete passes, the final play of the game would determine the outcome with three seconds left. The BG defense rose to the occasion covering all FSU receivers and Barsotti threw incomplete with BG linebacker Kevin O’Brien pressuring. It was BG’s first bowl win. BG won its 11th game making Blackney one of only three coaches in NCAA history to win 11 games in their first season as a head coach.

In the inaugural Las Vegas Bowl, which replaced the California Bowl, the Falcons faced the high-powered offense of the University of Nevada. In a game in which the punting game took center stage, the Falcons won the first half and Nevada the second half, but a late BG touchdown proved to be the difference. The Falcons scored on their first four possessions to grab a 28-3 halftime lead. BG had 267 first-half yards to just 116 for the Wolfpack as they had an 18-6 edge in first downs. In the second half, it was Nevada quarterback Chris Vargas’ turn. He had engineered six Nevada comeback victories in three years coming off the bench, including an NCAA-record 35-point comeback against Weber State.

Zeb Jackson gave BGSU a 28-7 lead against Nevada.

Nevada scored three touchdowns in the third quarter with punts of five and seven yards by BG setting up the first two scores. The Wolfpack’s third score was set up by a high snap from center on a BG punt. Nevada finally took the lead with 12:41 left in the game and looked to possibly put the game away with a field goal with 7:13 left, ending their run of 31 unanswered points. Bowling Green then moved to the Nevada six-yard line before turning the ball over on downs. After holding the Wolfpack to one first down, Nevada punter Steve Lester had the center snap go through his hands setting up the Falcons at the Wolfpack 15-yard line with 1:45 remaining. A 12-yard Erik White to Mark Szlachcic connection on first down put the Falcons on the three-yard line. After two runs and a pass did not net any yardage, White found Dave Hankins alone in the back of the end zone on fourth down with 22 seconds left. Placekicker Brian Leaver made the PAT for the winning points and BG’s second consecutive bowl win.

Omar Jacobs went from Bowling Green’s question mark to the MidAmerican Conference’s latest star quarterback. Jacobs capped a marvelous sophomore season by passing for 365 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Falcons to a 52-35 victory over Memphis in the GMAC Bowl. The Falcons (9-3) turned a shootout into a blowout after leading 35-28 at halftime to win their fourth consecutive bowl game. Jacobs got them started with four first-half touchdown passes - two apiece to Charles Sharon and Steve Sanders helped carry them the rest of the way. Pope ran 28 times for 151 yards and a pair of 1-yard touchdowns. He also caught a 13-yard pass for the only score of the third quarter. The Tigers (8-4), playing in back-to-back bowl games for the first time, couldn’t keep up with the nation’s No. 4 offense, which totaled 558 total yards. Jacobs, whose 41 touchdown passes led the nation and set a Mid-American Conference record, completed 26-of-44 passes with an interception to earn Most Valuable Player honors. At halftime, the teams seemed poised to take aim at the 2001 GMAC Bowl, the highest scoring bowl game in history with 125 combined points for Marshall and East Carolina. The offenses stopped themselves early in the third quarter. Jacobs threw only his fourth interception of the season to give the Tigers the ball at Bowling Green’s 41. Memphis tried to go for it on fourth down but was twice penalized for having 12 men on the field. Bowling Green made it 42-28 on the ensuing possession with Pope slipping underneath for a 13-yard touchdown catch on third-and-7. The Tigers then squandered another trip across midfield when a scrambling Wimprine fumbled the ball and Bowling Green’s Mike Thaler recovered 31 yards behind the line of scrimmage to set up a field goal.

Hurricane Paul Smith and the nation’s top-rated offense turned a little charity into a lot of history in the GMAC Bowl. Smith had his NCAA-record 14th consecutive 300-yard passing game, and Tulsa converted four fumble recoveries into first-half touchdowns on the way to a 63-7 win over Bowling Green in the 2007 GMAC Bowl. With all that help, the Golden Hurricane (10-4) ran up a 35-0 halftime lead and capped coach Todd Graham’s first season by reaching 10 wins for the first time since 1991. Smith passed for 312 yards and five touchdowns. He broke the record of 13 300-yard efforts in a row he shared with BYU’s Ty Detmer, whose streak stretched over the 1989 and 1990 seasons. He and Tarrion Adams joined Houston’s David Klingler and Chuck Weatherspoon as the NCAA’s only 5,000-yard passing and 1,000-yard rushing tandems.

Bowling Green, which had won four consecutive bowl games, lost three fumbles in its own territory in the first quarter and never recovered. Quarterback Tyler Sheehan was helped off the field with a left ankle injury with 24 seconds left in the first half and didn’t return. Sheehan passed for 141 yards and ran for another 21. Still throwing the ball despite the large lead late in the fourth quarter, the Golden Hurricanes became the first team in NCAA history to have a 5,000yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher and three 1,000-yard receivers. Smith came in needing 247 yards along with 45 yards receiving from Charles Clay, who reached the milestone with several catches midway through the fourth quarter and finished with 11 for 69 yards. The Mid-American Conference had won five of six GMAC Bowls before the Falcons’ fall. Down 42-0, Bowling Green got on the board when Roger Williams scored on a 78-yard kick return early in the third quarter for the Falcons’ only points. It was the first kickoff return for a touchdown in the history of the GMAC Bowl. Despite the loss the 2007 season was a very impressive one for the Orange and Brown, who finished the year with an 8-5 record, matching Central Michigan for the most overall wins in the conference. The Falcons, who were picked to finish fifth in the East Division, finished MAC play with a 6-2 record, finishing in a three-way tie for tops among the East.

Roger Williams scores on a 78 yard kickoff return, the first-ever kickoff return for a touchdown in the history of the GMAC Bowl.

The Bowling Green State University football team got a 51-yard touchdown from Freddie Barnes with 32 seconds remaining to take a 42-35 lead but surrendered a late touchdown with four seconds to go, as well as a two-point conversion, to fall 43-42 to the Idaho Vandals in the 2009 Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho. BGSU rallied back from a 28-14 and 35-28 deficits to lead with 32 seconds to go but the Vandals drove 66 yards on three plays, including a 50-yard strike to open the drive to get within one at 42-41. After a timeout the Vandals elected to go for two, converting in the back of the endzone for the winning score. The Falcons opened the scoring with senior quarterback Tyler Sheehan hooking up with Biletnikoff finalist Freddie Barnes on a 35-yard touchdown. Sheehan would call Barnes’ number 16 more times, finishing with a Humanitarian Bowl record 17 receiptions for 219 yards (both Humanitarian Bowl records), while Sheehan completed 33-of-47 passes for 387 yards and four touchdowns. Barnes would finish the season with 155 receptions, smashing the all-time NCAA mark of 142, held by Manny Hazzard (Houston) since 1989. For his efforts he was named BGSU’s Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl Most Valuable Player. Following a Vandal touchdown junior Willie Geter scampered 59 yards for a score to spot the Orange and Brown a 14-7 lead at the end of one quarter. It was Geter’s second longest run of the season. Neither team would get back on the scoreboard until Idaho’s Nathan Enderle connected with wide receiver Eric Greenwood on a seven-yard fade route with 19 seconds remaining in the first half to finish the first half at 14 apiece. Idaho started the second half off with a bang, scoring a pair of touchdowns in a four minute span to go up 28-14 with 5:30 minutes to go in the third quarter, a spot Bowling Green has seen before an answered. Much like the contest with Kent State and Buffalo, BGSU would have to find a way to rally from a doubledigit deficit, a deficit they would erase in a hurry. First, Sheehan connected with fellow classmate Jimmy Scheidler on a 15-yard touchdown with just over three minutes remaining in the third quarter and then found Barnes on an out-route at 12:15 in the fourth to knot the score at 28 apiece. The Vandals would answer back with a 74-yard drive to once again take the lead, this time, 35-28 with 8:32 to go in the game. A two-yard Geter touchdown, his second of the game, pushed the score to 35-35 and following a stop by the BGSU defense Sheehan and the Falcons marched 80 yards to take a 42-35 lead with 32 seconds remaining before the final winning drive by Idaho.
