Featured Game | Ohio Bobcats vs. Bowling Green Falcons

Why Ohio can cover

Senior Sam Wiglusz leads the receiving corps. He has a team-high 65 receptions for 794 yards (12.2 average) and 10 touchdowns. Wiglusz has at least three catches in every game, including a season-high 10 for 73 yards in a 59-52 win over Fordham on Sept. 24. He has two touchdown receptions in four separate games, the last coming in a six-catch and 131-yard performance against Buffalo on Nov. 1.

Defensively, Bobcats senior linebacker Bryce Houston has been a beast. He is second on the team with 58 tackles, including 31 solo, and leads Ohio with 4 ½ sacks for 39 yards. He has two pass breakups, one fumble recovery and two fumble recoveries, including one he returned for a touchdown. In the win over Buffalo, he registered eight tackles, including three solo, with two sacks.

Why Bowling Green can cover

Despite that, the Bobcats are not a lock to cover the Bowling Green vs. Ohio spread. That’s because the Falcons are led by senior quarterback Matt McDonald, who had a monster game in last week’s win at Toledo. McDonald completed 20 of 36 passes (55.6%) for 395 yards and four touchdowns. He was intercepted once, but had a rating of 178.8. For the season, McDonald has completed 214 of 346 passes (61.8%) for 2,422 yards and 21 touchdowns vs. five interceptions for a rating of 137.8.

His top target has been senior wide receiver Odieu Hiliare, who had eight receptions for 246 yards (30.8 average) and two touchdowns against Toledo. Hiliare has had two games of 100 yards or more and two others with two touchdowns. He caught four passes for 79 yards and two scores in a 34-31 overtime win over Marshall on Sept. 17. For the season, he has 51 receptions for 696 yards (13.6 average) and six TDs.
