Bowling Green Uses Third Quarter Surge to Beat Idaho, 21-13

BOWLING GREEN, OHIO — The Bowling Green Falcons scored two touchdowns in 1:15 of the third quarter to break open a close game and propel the Falcons to a 21-13 home opening win over Idaho. It was business as usual for Coach Dave Clawson, who raised his record in Doyt L. Perry Stadium openers to 4-0. The Falcons are now 1-1, following a solid effort in a loss to Florida last week, and the Vandals fell to 0-2.

Dominique Blackman, held out of the Vandals’ week one 20-3 loss to Eastern Washington, passed for 352 yards on 30 of 37 passes, but the Falcon defense — tackle Chris Jones would finish with 2.5 tackles for a loss — stiffened in the red zone, forcing Idaho to settle for three field goal attempts, missing one.

The two teams combined for 635 yards passing — Bowling Green’s Matt Schilz was 24 of 35 for 283 yards — but only 96 yards rushing, and hurt themselves with 22 penalties for 172 yards.

The Falcons scored on their second possession of the game, going 67 yards in five plays. Schilz connected on a 42 yard pass to a double-covered Shaun Joplin on first down to the Vandals’ 25, and four plays later, Anthon Samuel bounced off the middle of the line and scooted in from four yards out. Samuel set a Falcon freshman record last year with 844 yards rushing. Joplin finished with seven catches for 117 yards.

The Vandals’ deepest advance in the first half was their own 41 until late in the second quarter. They went 77 yards in 11 plays to get on the board on a 20 yard Trey Farquhar field goal with 1:48 left. The Falcons’ decision not to settle for a 7-3 lead at the half backfired when Schilz fumbled on his own 32. Farquhar added a 22 yard field goal with :15 left to cut it to 7-6 at intermission. Ryland Ward of Columbus Brookhaven High School forced the field attempt by breaking up Blackman’s third down pass at the Falcons’ 5 yard line.

Farquhar has the second most field goals in Idaho history, but missed a 36 yard attempt on the opening drive of the second half, ending a 12 play drive at the Falcons’ 19.

That’s what kick-started the Falcons’ two-TD outburst. They went 80 yards in nine plays, capped by Samuel’s second TD run, 29 yards on a draw play. Another 37 yards in the drive came on a reception by Chris Gallon on the left sideline.

The Falcons executed the tip drill on the next play, with three defenders batting a Blackman pass before Josh Pettus gathered it in at the Vandals’ 28. Three plays later, Schilz hit Je’Ron Stokes with a short pass over the middle, and Stokes took it in from 15 yards.

The Vandals cut it to 21-13 with 6:22 left in the game, going 78 yards in seven plays, capped off by Blackman’s 16 yard lob to Marquan Major in the left corner of the end zone. The drive was set up by an interception by Solomon Dixon at their own 22. They got the ball back with 3:41 left, but on the first play, Jahrie Level lost the ball after his tenth catch of the game, on a hit by Paul Swan at his own 33.

OSU 37 COLORADO 17 GAME REVIEW: Miller proves he should be #1 QB


Colorado coach Jon Embree said special teams was the key Saturday (

Ohio State football fans got what they’ve wanted all season; freshman QB sensation Braxton Miller as the number-1 man playing an entire game and leading the team to a win.

The athletic and exciting phenom from Huber Heights, Ohio, gave the Buckeyes a much-needed lift after the team lost the 24-6 debacle to Miami last weekend.

We seen this twice before at Ohio State as an athletic quarterback replaces a pure-passer: Troy Smith replaced Justin Zwick; Terrelle Pryor replaced Todd Boeckman and now Miller replacing Joe Bauserman.

In the 37-17 win over new Pacific-12 Conference member, Colorado.

Miller, making his first collegiate start, wasn’t spectacular throwing the ball, but he was 5 of 13 passing for 83 yards and rushed 17 times for 83 yards. He threw two touchdown passes to Devin Smith. He moved the team up-and-down the field with the poise of a senior.

Head coach Luke Fickell said after the game that Miller is the starting quarterback from here-on-out.

The Buckeyes defense held the Buffaloes from gaining a first down until they were up 17-0.

The 3-1 Buckeyes dominated the special teams as Jordan Hall had a 90-yard kickoff return.

* OSU has 822 wins all-time, the fifth-most among FBS schools.

* The Buckeyes were 5-of-6 in the red zone, with three touchdowns and two field goals.

* Ohio State held Colorado to 3-of-13 on third down conversions.

* The Buffaloes had only two possessions inside the red zone against the Buckeye defense.

* Colorado tailback Rodney Stewart, a Columbus Brookhaven High School graduate, ran for 96 All-purpose yards on 11 rushes for 55 yards on offense, 5 catches for 27 as a receiver and 2 punt returns for 14 yards.

He moved into third place on the CU all-time rushing yards list, closing the game with 3,022 yards; he passed Bobby Purify (2000-04) with 3,016 and is right behind Rashaan Salaam (1992-94) with 3,057 for second place.

He is still second in career rushes with 692. His offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy leads with 699. Stewart’s five receptions gives him 71 career receptions, now second most by a running back at Colorado as he passed Lawrence Vickers (2002-05) on Saturday.

His 702 receiving yards are also second by a running back, as he passed up Cortlen Johnson (1998-2001) with 691 and Lee Rouson (1980-84) with 699 on Saturday. Up next is Herchell Troutman (1994-97) with 725.

* There is no real way to research this, but Colorado head coach Jon Embree might be the first collegiate head coach to face three schools who all appear on his first schedule that he chose his alma mater over.

Back in January 1983, when Embree, along with a dozen other top prospects in Colorado, chosen then CU-head coach Bill McCartney and his vision for the program. The high school All-American from Englewood Cherry Creek High School then committed and signed with the Buffaloes, and in selecting Colorado over Ohio State, Southern California and UCLA, all of whom are opponents on his first schedule as a head coach.
