Notes: The Falcons look to finish the season with their sixth straight victory in the team’s third bowl appearance in five seasons. … BG also is looking for its first bowl win since beating Memphis in the 2004 GMAC Bowl. … Pitt is looking to finish with a victory that would give the program its first winning season since 2010. … The Panthers are in a bowl game for the sixth straight year; Pitt had played in the BBVA Compass Bowl in each of the previous three seasons. … The Panthers are 29-3 all-time against MAC opponents but suffered a 27-17 loss to BG at Heinz Field to open the 2008 season. … BG is looking to maintain an undefeated record at Ford Field. The Falcons beat Northwestern 28-24 in the 2003 Motor City Bowl and knocked off Northern Illinois in the MAC championship game at Ford Field on Dec. 6. … A win would help BG tie the school record for wins in a season, a mark set in 1985 and tied in both 1991 and 2003. … The Falcons have outscored opponents in all four quarters this season but have dominated the third period, outscoring opponents in that quarter 128-21.
