2014 Bowling Green Falcons Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
by Strike Point Sports - 7/27/2014
2013 Record: 10-4
2014 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 9.5*
2014 Season Win Total Prediction: 'Over'
Bowling Green is the cream of the crop in the MAC and they will prove it by winning double-digit games this season. The Falcons won 10 games last season and they will look to continue to get better. Bowling Green will have a new coach in Dino Babers, who will look to bring his uptempo offense from Eastern Illinois to the MAC, but they won't skip a beat.
The offense will be stacked as they return junior quarterback Matt Johnson, 3,467 yards and 25 touchdowns, junior running back Travis Green, 1,594 rushing yards, and a slew of wide receivers. The Falcons will look to have more running plays than they did last season, a season in which Green rushed for more yards than any running back at Bowling Green in over 60 years, and that will make life even easier for Johnson. Look for the Falcons to put up more points than they did last season while maintaining their defensive prowess.
Bowling Green had top ranked defense (total) in the MAC last season and they return many of their standouts. Yes, their secondary lost a few names, but with their offense scoring more than they did last season, it won't be as much of a detriment as people believe.
Another thing to keep an eye on with the Falcons is their special teams. Bowing Green lead the MAC in both kickoff returns and punt returns and they return kicker Tyler Tate, who went 18-22 on field goals, including 6-8 from more than 40 yards.
The Falcons have a tough matchup at Wisconsin, but they should be favored in most of their schedule outside of that contest. Look for the Falcons to continue their solid play from last season and grab another conference title.
