This should be a high scoring game when you consider the Bowling Green Falcons are 128th in total defense and 127th in scoring defense. The Buffalo Bulls aren’t that much better, with them being ranked 107th total defense and 104th in scoring defense. It doesn’t hurt that 4 of the last 5 meetings between Buffalo and Bowling Green have gone over the total. Expect some fireworks. Give me the over 55.5 points.
