BG Falcons and UT Rockets: Metro Toledo NCAA Football Upset Weekend
UT Rockets, BGSU Falcons Shock Big Ten, SEC
NCAA College football in Metro Toledo
When the 2015 NCAA Football season kicked off last weekend, the Bowling Green Falcons went on the road and gave SEC powerhouse Tennessee all they could handle. BGSU eventually fell to the Mountaineers by a score of 59 -30, a final score that doesn't reflect how close the game was for the first three-plus quarters.
The Falcons are good. Their schedule is brutal. BG was back on the road for a game two matchup with Maryland. The Terrapins are now a Big Ten school. And Mid American Conference Bowling Green beat them like dirty rug. Final score: BGSU 48 Maryland 27.
The Falcons next game is September 19
home at Doyt L. Perry Stadium, against the Memphis Tigers.
Meanwhile, the University of Toledo Rockets first scheduled game, never happened. The Rockets home opener against Stony Brook was delayed by weather, until ultimately being suspended and ruled no-contest.
Game number two on UT's 2015 schedule was on the road, at Southeast Conference powerhouse Arkansas. The Razorbacks were rated in the top 20 nationally. Arkansas was a prohibitive favorite to spank the Rockets. Final score: UT 16 Arkansas 12.
The UT Rockets return to the Glassbowl for a September 19
matchup with the Iowa State Cyclones.
Fill up those stadiums folks. College football in Metro Toledo rocks.
