Temple vs. Bowling Green series at a glance


One would assume Temple will run all over – and around –Bowling Green when the teams meet Saturday in a Mid-American Conference matchup at Doyt Perry Stadium.

That's because the Owls (5-2, 3-1 MAC) boast the conference top-ranked rushing offense at 257 rushing yard per game. The Falcons (3-4, 1-2), on the other hand, have given up 351 and 268 rushing yards in their past two games. Bowling Green also heads into the contest with a three-game skid.

But the Falcons will be fired up, considering this is a “must-win” game for them.

Here’s a glimpse of the Temple vs. Bowling Green series:
