Why Bowling Green Will Win
The Falcons are still in the hunt for the MAC East title if they win out – Ohio is coming up – and get a little help. For now, getting a win would mean a bowl game. That’s more than good enough.
They might be having problems with mistakes, but they’re used to that by now – they beat Central Michigan despite getting flagged 17 times and fought through games with multiple turnovers.
They have to use their great pass rush to keep the Toledo passing game from going off. That disruptive front has to force takeaways, going 3-0 with three or more turnovers and Toledo 0-3 with multiple turnovers, but …
Why Toledo Will Win
Toledo wins when it runs well.
It’s 7-1 when it hits 130 yards on the ground – only losing to Buffalo when the O couldn’t stop giving the ball away – and the Bowling Green run defense is spotty.
The Falcons don’t get steamrolled over, but they couldn’t handle the flash of Kent State last week allowing over 200 yards on the ground, Buffalo ran wild, and the UCLA was UCLA with is rushing attack. They’re 0-3 when allowing over 200 rushing yards, and …
What’s Going To Happen
Toledo is going to start running and keep running. Getting to 200 yards won’t be a problem, but how much will the team care?
The MAC West title is already wrapped up and a bowl game is now a lock, but it’s the final regular season game of the year. It might be a Tuesday night, but it’s Senior Day.
The Rockets are going to control the game on the ground from the start.
