Week 2 Recap: Bowling Green Drops a Game to South Dakota

The offense was ok, the defense was not

NCAA Football: Bowling Green at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

After a somewhat tough loss against Michigan State, the Bowling Green Falcons looked to rebound against South Dakota. It didn’t happen. South Dakota jumped out to an early lead on the road, and hung on for the victory.

The stats reflect the performance. BGSU gave up 520 yards. That’s the story of the game. Sure, I can focus on how BGSU fought back, and that is nice. This game was pretty much a recap of last season. Started off terrible, showed heart, but overall graded as a loss.

Here is the official box score.
