One more quarter left until we know who will face Northern Illinois next Friday night in the Mid-American Conference Championship Game, and the Falcons lead that race over Buffalo, 17-7.
As they have done all year, the Falcons absolutely dominated the third quarter. They posted two long scoring drives with huge plays from Matt Johnson on each. Johnson threw a touchdown pass to Shaun Joplin on the first drive, then Travis Greene scored a touchdown of his own on the following possession. His TD capped a 93-yard march for the Falcons.
Buffalo could get nothing going on offense and has just 109 yards for the entire game. Bowling Green had over 200 yards of offense in the quarter and stands at 365 for the game. Greene has 121 yards rushing, while Johnson has added 71 yards on the ground and 158 passing yards. Joplin has four catches for 77 yards. Buffalo's Branden Oliver has only 39 yards on 15 carries, and Joe Licata has completed just nine of 21 passes for 87 yards. Alex Neutz leads the Bulls with three receptions for 29 yards.
