Bowling Green at Ohio: MAC football returns to primetime on ESPN2


Bowling Green at Ohio

■Time: 8 p.m.

■Records: BGSU is 6-3, 4-1 MAC; Ohio is 8-1, 4-1


■Radio: 1470, 99.1

■Series: BGSU leads 36-25-2

■Favorite: Ohio by 3½

■Notes: While the Falcons lead in the overall series, Ohio has won the last three meetings of the two teams. … Last year the Bobcats won 29-28 when Matt Weller kicked a game-winning 23-yard field goal as time expired. … Ohio ranks among the FBS leaders in turnover margin, having created 20 turnovers (11 interceptions and nine fumbles) while losing the ball just five times to tie for fourth nationally. … The Bobcats are 9-1 in midweek games dating back to 2009, and their 8-1 mark this season is their best through nine games since 1968. … Oregon native Eric Herman is a senior for the Bobcats. The Central Catholic grad starts at right guard. … The Falcons look to win their sixth straight, which would be the program’s longest victory streak since the 2004 squad won seven in a row. … The BG defense, which leads the MAC in fewest points (15.2 ppg) and yards (290.0 ypg) allowed, has gone nine quarters, or more than 114 minutes, without allowing a touchdown. The Falcons defense has scored a TD twice in that span. … Even more impossibly, BG has not allowed an extra point for more than 219 minutes (Miami went for two after its TD and did not get it).
