Seniors leave Perry Stadium in grand fashion

For the football team’s seniors, Saturday night not only marked the end of an undefeated home season, it was also their last time to set foot in Doyt Perry Stadium.

Fifteen seniors came out of the tunnel and played under the lights for their last time.

“Being the last game at home, it feels really good to come out winners and to go undefeated in our home stadium,” said receiver Robert Redd. “We wanted to come out since it was our last game here. We just wanted to come out here and play hard. We struggled the last few weeks. We just weren’t playing Bowling Green football.”

However, the Falcons were back on track Saturday night as the senior led the team to a 63-21 victory over Eastern Michigan. Head coach Urban Meyer didn’t focus too much on the fact that this was the seniors’ last home game. He just wanted to team to win.

“I thought that group of seniors, we challenged them this week,” Meyer said. “Everybody talked about our seniors last year, but our seniors won their last three games. That’s why they were remembered so well.”

This year, the seniors have won their last home game, but they still have one more big game to come next week at Toledo before they will go down in the history books as one of the best senior classes.

Meyer believes that just because they are seniors that doesn’t make them leaders.

“I think that seniors and leadership is a very overused word and I told that to our seniors,” Meyer said. “Just because you went to school for four years and you are a senior academically that doesn’t make you a leader on the football team. You have to earn that and you will not be remembered as a great leader unless you finish the season strong the way you are supposed to. I thought they really came out and played hard [Saturday].”

The seniors had a great night on both offense and defense. They had a total of 23 rushes for 147 yards and nine receptions for 106 yards on offense. On the defensive side of the ball the seniors recovered a fumble and caught an interception.
