  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]

BG Football Opens Season; Loses to Michigan State 35-10

History tends to repeat itself, and today was no exception when the Bowling Green State University Falcons took on the Michigan State Spartans and came away with a 35-10 loss.

For the past three years the Falcons have opened up on the road versus a Power Five conference team, and the second straight year they did so against a Big Ten team. BGSU looked to come into today’s game with a different outcome than the two previous games.

Last year, the Falcons took on Ohio State down in Columbus. Ohio State came away with a thundering 77-10 victory over BGSU. If you don’t remember though, the Falcons had the lead for a brief moment there, when a pass was intercepted and taken for six. Then Ohio State went out to put up 77 against the team, so the fun didn’t last very long.

This year, the team held an advantage over the Spartans for one quarter of play. After a fumble was forced at the Bowling Green one-yard line, BGSU would then connect on a 45-yard pass from James Morgan to Datrin Guyton to set the Falcons up in field goal range.

The Falcons held that 3-0 lead heading into the second quarter before a seven-yard run by Madre London of Michigan State put the Spartans up, 7-3. It would stay that way until Michigan State had a tremendous two-minute drill operation to end the first half when Brian Lewerke would find Felton Davis for a four-yard touchdown reception.

If you are Bowling Green, you aren’t happy that you let up a touchdown that late in the quarter, but you are happy that it is still a close game.

Then the third quarter hit and it seemed as though Michigan State had a plan and executed it, time in and time out. The Spartans would open up the third quarter with three straight touchdown drives to take full advantage of the game and put it out of reach for the Falcons.

The game would stay 35-3 until LJ Scott of the Spartans fumbled for the second time, and this time it was scooped up and into the end zone by Cameron Jeffries. That would be BGSU’s only touchdown of the afternoon.
