The Bowling Green Falcons and the Kansas State Wildcats will meet up on the college football circuit Saturday.
Bowling Green opened things up with a victory in their Week 1 game against the Morgan State Bears. The Falcons jumped out to a 30-3 lead at halftime and cruised to a 46-3 decision.
Darius Wade had a great outing for the Falcons in their opener, tossing for 253 yards and three touchdowns. Andrew Clair led the Bowling Green rush with 86 yards and a TD, and Julian Ortega-Jones put up five grabs for 69 yards.
Over on the Kansas State side, they bagged a big win in their opener as well, taking out the Nicholls State Colonels 49-14. The Wildcats were up 28-0 at halftime in that one and put up 21 points in the fourth quarter.
Skylar Thompson threw for 212 yards and a score in the Wildcats’ opening game, and James Gilbert led the rush on 115 yards and a TD. Dalton Schoen was the top receiver for Kansas State on 65 yards and a score.
The Falcons are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and 1-6 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Bowling Green is 2-12 ATS in their last 14 non-conference games and 1-5 ATS in the last six after a straight-up win.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 4-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Kansas State is 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 versus the MAC.
Bowling Green should come into this one nice and fresh, as they were able to ease things back in the second half thanks to that big lead. That led to a lot of different rushers getting work, and most of them put up nice numbers.
Kansas State did much of the same thing in their game, as nine different players had at least one rush, and six of them scored. This should be a fun matchup and could end up being a lower-scoring affair. I like Bowling Green to keep relative pace here and cover.
