CFB | Eastern Kentucky Colonels (0-1) at Bowling Green Falcons (0-2)
Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Week three college football features the Eastern Kentucky Colonels traveling to the Bowling Green Falcons.

The Eastern Kentucky Colonels never found the groove offensively in falling to Marshall 32-16 in week two. Eastern Kentucky held the Thundering Herd to 367 yards with four turnovers but mustered just 198 yards of their own and gave the ball away three times.

The Colonels passing attack was a non factor with a 7-19 effort from three passers resulting in 48 yards and three interceptions. The Eastern Kentucky ground game saw Alphonso Howard grind out 64 yards on 13 carries while LJ Scott ran seven times for 35 yards.

The Bowling Green Falcons rugged early season schedule has the team staring at an 0-2 start following a 45-14 loss to visiting Maryland as a 14 point home dog. Bowling Green was outgained 565-158 with the Terps racing up 444 rushing yards.

Falcons quarterback Jarret Doege connected on 17-27 for 143 yards and a pair of touchdowns along with an interception but nothing stretched the field through the air.

Quinton Morris led the BGSU receiving corps with a game high five receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown while Andrew Clair topped the running game with 44 yards on 16 touches.

Eastern Kentucky  are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on fieldturf and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and under is 5-1 in Eastern Kentucky last 6 games on fieldturf. Over is 4-0 in BGSU last 4 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game and over is 5-0 in BGSU last 5 games following a ATS loss and over is 5-0 in BGSU last 5 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. 

The number looks to be on the money so I'd tread lightly or look elsewhere...

Pick:
Eastern Kentucky +14

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
