Sparty welcomes the Falcons in this B1G/MACtion tilt

NCAA Football: Bowling Green at Memphis Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

In 2015, the Bowling Green Falcons and Michigan State Spartans stood on top of their conferences as champions. In 2016, the teams combined for a 7-17 record.

Which version of Bowling Green and which version of Michigan State will we see in 2017? Plenty of question marks head into this game, but both teams seemed poised for bounce back seasons.

The two teams last collided in 2007 during Mark Dantonio's first year at the helm in East Lansing. The rookie coach's squad won 28-17, and shortly after, Dantonio built a modern power in the Big Ten. Before 2017's 3-9 result, Michigan State posted five seasons of 11 wins or greater in a six-year span, including two outright conference titles and a playoff appearance.

Bowling Green has not been gifted with the same consistency. The Falcons have cycled through four different head coaches within the last decade, with Dave Clawson and Dino Babers electing to take Power Five jobs as a result of success in the MAC. Two conference championships were won in 2013 and 2015, however. The Falcons' current second-year head coach, Mike Jinks, is ready to bring Bowling Green back to the top of the MAC after plenty of growing pains during the 2016 season.
