Game Day Bowling Green --September 27th, 2014

Having finished the what was probably the toughest OOC schedule in FBS, the Minutemen now open with the MAC League champion Bowling Green Falcons.

Bowling Green has an offense that could compare with just about anyone in FBS. They are 34th in the nation in passing offense going 111-176 1152 5 TD's 288.2 Yards/game. The Falcons are #120 out of 125 teams in scoring defense (UMass is #110).

UMass's best defense could be a clock-controlling offense. A few turnovers would help too.
Hope to see everyone at McGuirk! Go UMass!

Who is responsible for having a parade go right into the traffic? Probably the same guy that said "we can't afford signs", so we will have every car stop and say to a policeman, "where do we park?". Guess what-it did not work very well. Shuttle buses anyone?
