Bowling Green Falcons (0-2) at Northwestern Wildcats (1-1)

NCAAF: Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. ET

Line: Northwestern -22

Over/Under: 57

The Bowling Green Falcons hit the road to take on the Northwestern Wildcats for a Saturday night contest. Bowling Green was looking to build off a three-game win streak to end a 4-8 season last year. So far the Falcons have gotten off to a slow start losing their first two games. James Morgan leads the offense with 460 passing yards and two touchdowns. The problem is that Morgan is only completing 38 percent of his passes after completing 56 percent last year. Northwestern is led by struggling signal-caller Clayton Thorson who has 472 passing yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. Can Morgan lead the Falcons to a needed road win?

Falcons fall to Coyotes

On Saturday, the Bowling Green Falcons lost 35-27 to the South Dakota Coyotes. South Dakota jumped out to a 21-3 lead at the end of the first and they never looked back. Chris Streveler was unstoppable as he had 306 passing yards and 119 rushing yards for South Dakota. James Morgan went for 315 passing yards and two touchdowns in the loss. Josh Cleveland led Bowling Green with 87 rushing yards on 10 carries. The difference in the contest was certainly turnovers. Bowling Green had three turnovers while South Dakota didn’t have one. Datrin Guyton had a huge night with 158 receiving yards on five receptions.

Wildcats defense abysmal in loss to Duke

The Northwestern Wildcats lost 41-17 to the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday. Northwestern was flat out dominated in the contest. Duke had 538 total yards to Northwestern’s 191. Blue Devils quarterback Daniel Jones dominated as he went for 305 passing yards and 108 rushing yards in the contest. The same couldn’t be said about Clayton Thorson who had 120 passing yards and two interceptions. The Wildcats struggled with their ground attack all game. Northwestern had 22 rushing yards on 21 carries as a team. It’s safe to say their defense was worn out after Duke had possession for 41 of the 60 minutes in the game. The Wildcats had less than 15 yards of offense in 10 of 13 drives.

Trends:

The Bowling Green Falcons are:

  • 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.
  • 0-7 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games.
  • 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games in September.

The Northwestern Wildcats are:

  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game.
  • 17-4 ATS in their last 21 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.

Northwestern has their fair share of problems on offense but their defense should contain Bowling Green. Look for Thorson to have his biggest game of the season in an easy Wildcats win.
