The Bowling Green vs. Miami OH match involves two of the NCAA's most prominent collegiate football teams. The Bowling Green Falcons is the intercollegiate football group of Bowling Green State University. The group is a member of the NCAA. It plays in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. It was formerly the Division I-A level. BGSU football plays within the Mid-American Conference in the East Division. The Bowling Green Falcons have played their home matches in the Doyt Perry Stadium for the past half-century. The stadium can seat nearly 25,000 spectators. In their nearly 100-year history, the Bowling Green Falcons have won a College Division national championship as voted by the UPI and a dozen MAC championships.

 

Nearly three years ago, the team named the offensive coordinator of Boston College, Scot Loeffler, as the head coach. During that time, the Bowling Green Falcons were playing their 100th-anniversary match versus the Toledo Rockets. They won that match. In that match, the team was the underdogs and got their first win against Toledo over the past 12 years. The team finished the year with three wins and nine losses. In the second season of the coach, the team did not win even one match. They went down with five consecutive losses in a shortened season due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, Loeffler would get his biggest victory as the head coach when the team defeated the Minnesota Gophers at Huntington Bank Stadium. The victory would be the first win of Bowling Green against an FBS team in the past two years.

 

The Miami RedHawks program represents Miami University situated in Oxford, Ohio, in college football at the NCAA Division, FBS level. The team playing in the Mid-American Conference is known for creating many high-profile head coaches. This has earned the team the nickname the Cradle of Coaches. The RedHawks play their home matches at Yager Stadium. Nearly eight years ago, Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chuck Martin was appointed as the head football coach of the Miami RedHawks. He also had a very successful record as head coach at the NCAA Division II team Grand Valley State. That team obtained only seven losses in more than five seasons, including a national runner-up and a couple of national championships.

 

In the coach's first season, the team's losing streak of more than 20 matches finally ended with a last-gasp win over UMass. The team also won over Kent State and ended the season with two wins. The next season, the team amassed three victories. After overcoming Presbyterian in the season opener, the team also won against UMass and Eastern Michigan. The next year, the team struggled in the initial part of the season. It started the season with six losses. But the team recovered. They won the last six matches of their official season. They became the first team in the history of FBS to win their last six matches after losing the initial six. The team obtained a berth in the St. Petersburg Bowl. They lost that game to Mississippi State by a margin of one. The team finished the season with six wins in total.

 

Bowling Green vs. Miami OH: Bowling Green Previous Match

 

Bowling Green played their last match against Buffalo a few days ago. Matt McDonald threw for more than 200 yards in that match and had a career-best four touchdowns. He scored three of them in the first half. He also ran more than 40 yards for the capper with only a minute left to play. The team survived the ejection of Scot Loeffler, the head coach, to win over Buffalo on Saturday. McDonald entered the match with more than five touchdown passes in the season. The teams scored nearly 50 points together in the fourth quarter. They matched score for score. Buffalo rallied with more than thirty points after halftime. The teams got nearly a thousand yards of offense in total. With this win, the team ended a four-match losing streak. McDonald's run for the last touchdown appeared to be a kneel-down when he spotted a gap and sprinted out of the pocket. 

 

McDonald completed eight of his first 12 passes with a couple of touchdowns to Christian Sims for six and eighty yards. He gave the third one to Tyrone Broden. Broden had a couple of touchdown catches and more than a hundred yards of receivables, while Sims got more than four catches for hundred yards. Terion Steward ran for more than 160 yards and a couple of second-half touchdowns as the team got more than 200 yards on the ground. In the third quarter, the head coach was ejected after he was flagged for a couple of unsportsmanlike conduct calls on consecutive drives. He became the first head coach to be removed in such a manner since a change of rules more than five years ago. Twenty minutes after his ejection, the team got more points than in any complete match over the previous couple of seasons.

 

The Buffalo backup quarterback Matt Myers passed for more than 200 yards with a touchdown pass. He ran for a couple more after starter Kyle Vantrease left after one sack. The opponent went for McDonald for a couple of sacks after getting a program-best eleven sacks in the previous week. Dylan McDuffie carried more than 30 times for 160 yards and a couple of touchdowns. This was his third consecutive hundred-yard match.

 

Bowling Green vs. Miami OH: Miami Previous Match

 

The team had a painful defeat from Ohio in the Battle of the Bricks. Following that, the team played against Buffalo in Yager Stadium for a crucial MACtion divisional match. The team trailed the match against their archrival Ohio in the third quarter before putting on an aggressive rally. They got more than four touchdowns the rest of the path but missed a PAT and then did not make a two-point conversion. It proved the difference as a late touchdown run by De'Montre Tuggle of Ohio helped get the game. The defeat also overtook Miami to be second in the MAC East division. They are now a match behind Kent State. The team has among the stingiest defenses in the MAC this season. The team ranks second in both rushing and scoring. They are third in total in defense. Miami's run defense versus Buffalo's running game will be the strength versus strength matchup.

 

The linebacker of the team Ivan Pace Jr. also is a promising player to look out for. He racked up a couple of sacks and nearly 20 tackles in a losing effort against Ohio. It took the team more than a half of the match to get going against Ohio finally. But when they did, the touchdowns came swiftly. Quarterback Brett Gabbert got career highs in touchdowns, yards, attempts, and completions. He threw only a single interception. Do not forget that the first touchdown of Miami did not come until the third quarter. Gabbert has got a neat touchdown to interception ratio this year in more than five matches. But he has not blossomed till the previous week. He spread the ball around to many different receivers against Ohio. But his favored target is Jack Sorenson.
