The Bowling Green Falcons look for back-to-back victories for the first time this season to rebound from a 2-8 record. The Bowling Green Falcons have lost three straight home games. James Morgan is completing 56.6 percent of his passes for 1,759 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Morgan has three or more touchdown passes in three of his last four games. Scott Miller and Ronnie Moore have combined for 1,294 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Teo Redding has 28 receptions.

The Golden Flashes are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games on fieldturf. The Falcons are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games and 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games in November. The Golden Flashes are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Bowling Green and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings overall.
Two of the worst teams in the MAC, so good luck picking this contest. However, Bowling Green has won the last three games against Kent State, including a 48-0 beatdown last season on the road. Bowling Green also has a passing game with Morgan putting up some impressive numbers the last few weeks. This is a toss-up, but given the recent history between these two teams and the fact the Bowling Green Falcons are at home, I'll side with the points and predict an outright victory as well.
