Falcons hit by injury, suspension after Temple match

BOWLING GREEN – There was a mixture of good and bad news for the Bowling Green State University football team following its one-point loss at Temple Saturday.

The bad news is that two players have been removed from the depth chart, one because of injury and another by suspension.

The injured Falcon is Zach Akenberger, a Bowling Green High School product who will miss the rest of the season because of a leg injury suffered in the 28-27 loss at Temple Saturday.

The suspended Falcon is senior cornerback Robert Lorenzi, who was suspended indefinitely because of a violation of team rules. The length of the suspension has not been determined, but Lorenzi has not been dismissed from the team.

The cause of the suspension also was not released by the team, but police logs indicate that Lorenzi was arrested at 2:31 a.m. Sunday morning and charged with assault by Bowling Green police.

The good news for BG is that several players injured in the setback against the Owls have a chance to play in the Falcons' next game, a home contest against Kent State Saturday, Oct. 23 starting at 3:30 p.m.

Cameron Truss, a redshirt freshman cornerback, and Willie Geter, a senior running back, remain on the depth chart for the game against the Golden Flashes, although both are listed as questionable.

Junior wide receiver-punt returner Eugene Cooper is listed as probable for Saturday's game.
