Bowling Green had an early lead over UCLA in its 2022 opener but ultimately fell 45-17 after failing to score in the second half. In Game 2, the Falcons were much closer against Eastern Kentucky. This, however, turned into a tough 59-57 overtime loss.

In Game 3 against Marshall, Bowling Green came back from an early 14-point deficit to win 34-31 in overtime. QB Matt McDonald passed for 282 yards and four touchdowns, while PaSean Wimberly led the rush with five carries for 35 yards. Odieu Hiliare had four catches for 79 yards and two scores as well.

The Mississippi State side managed to score 28 points in the first half of their opener against Memphis, resulting in a 49-23 victory. In the second outing of the year, the Bulldogs faced Arizona. That one was also a big win; a result of 39-17.

Facing LSU on Saturday, the Bulldogs had a 16-13 lead going into the fourth quarter but then coughed up 21 more points for a 31-16 loss. Will Rogers finished with 214 yards, a touchdown and a pick. Rara Thomas scored among her four grabs for 67 yards.

TAKE: I’m sticking with Mississippi State, but the line is probably too thick to play with. The Bulldogs were outplayed by a pretty good LSU team in most facets in their last outing, but they were still in a winning position late. Mississippi State posted a tepid total of 289 yards with 15 first downs and two turnovers, so they have a lot of work to do this week.

As for Bowling Green, they will be riding on their overtime win for a while. The Falcons were outplayed by Marshall in most facets, but still found a way to win. I don’t think lightning will strike twice in a row, so I’m more comfortable with the Bulldogs on a blanket.
