Buffalo is scoring an average of 29.9 points per game while allowing 23.7 points per game. Buffalo is averaging 380.3 yards per game against giving up 302.7 yards per game.  I am going to go with Buffalo in this one as I don’t believe Bowling Green will score many points against the Bulls defense and due to the fact that Buffalo has the home field advantage.  Buffalo wins 49-17 and covers the spread.
