Murray State @ Bowling Green
Current records: Murray State 1-1; Green ball 0-2
What there is to know
The Murray State Racers will stay on the road Saturday to take on the Bowling Green Falcons at 5 p.m. ET on September 18 at Doyt L. Perry Stadium. MSU is expected to win – but not by much – so they will have to come to the competition prepared for a fight.
Everything was tied 7-7 at halftime, but the Racers weren’t quite tied with the Cincinnati Bearcats in the second half when they met last week. MSU played a game they hope to forget as they lost a 42-7 blowout to Cincinnati. It was a close 7-7 game at the break, but unfortunately for MSU it certainly didn’t stay that way. QB Preston Rice had a game to remember, but not the way you want to remember it: Despite a touchdown, he threw three interceptions with just 5.14 yards per passing attempt.
Meanwhile, it was a tough game, but Bowling Green had to settle for a 22-19 loss to the Southern Alabama Jaguars last week.
With both teams each stumbling after a loss, both will be hungry for the win. Giving up four turnovers, the Racers struggled to keep the ball. We’ll see if the Falcons can exploit this vulnerability.
