 Matt McDonald, Bowling Green, Player News


  Matt McDonald completed 24 of 37 passes for 255 yards and a touchdown and Bowling Green beat Ohio 21-10 on Friday in the season finale for both teams. The Bobcats beat Bowling Green 52-10 last season. On fourth-and-goal from the 1, Bowling Green's Nick Mosley was dropped in the backfield by Bryce Houston but, after a false start by the Bobcats, Blaine Spires and Karl Brooks stopped Armani Rogers in the end zone to give the Falcons a 15-10 lead with 12:55 to play.

Nate Needham, who missed from 43 yards in the second quarter, made field goals of 23 and 43 yards before his 40-yarder capped a 13-play, 51-yard drive to make it 18-10 with 7:03 left. He added a 39-yard field goal to cap the scoring with 1:17 to play. Rogers, who finished with three carries for minus-4 yards, took a snap from the shotgun and plowed into the end zone from 1-yard out early in the second quarter and Steven Johnson kicked a 22-yard field goal to give Ohio (3-9, 3-5 Mid-American Conference) a 10-3 lead with 8:47 left in the first half. The Falcons (4-8, 2-6) responded with an 11-play, 70-yard drive that culminated when McDonald threw a 14-yard pass TD to Austin Osborne that made it 10-all at halftime. - Bowling Green/AP College Football

  Matt McDonald threw for 263 yards and a career-best four touchdowns - three in the first half - ran 47 yards for the capper with under a minute to play and Bowling Green survived the ejection of head coach Scot Loeffler to upend Buffalo 56-44 on Saturday. McDonald entered the game with six touchdown passes on the season. The teams combined for 49 points in the fourth quarter alone, matching score for score, and Buffalo rallied with 34 points after halftime. The teams amassed 983 yards of total offense. The Falcons (3-6, 1-4 Mid-American Conference) ended a four-game skid. McDonald's run for the final touchdown appeared to be set up as a kneel-down when he saw a gap and bolted out of the pocket.

McDonald completed eight of his first 11 passes with two touchdowns to Christian Sims, for 81 and 6 yards - and a third to Tyrone Broden. Broden had two TD catches and 110 yards receiving while Sims made five catches for 103 yards. Terion Stewart rushed for 170 yards and two second-half touchdowns as Bowling Green gained 221 yards on the ground. Loeffler was ejected in the third quarter after being flagged for two unsportsmanlike conduct calls on back-to-back drives. He became the first head coach ejected since a rules change in 2016. In 18 minutes after his ejection, Bowling Green scored more points than in any full game over the last two seasons. Buffalo backup quarterback Matt Myers was 12-of-24 passing for 239 yards with a touchdown pass, and he ran for two more after starter Kyle Vantrease left after a sack. - Bowling Green/AP College Football

  SEPT 27 MAC EAST DIVISION OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Matt McDonald, Bowling Green, QB, Senior, Newport Beach, Calif. (Mission Viejo),...McDonald rushed for two touchdowns, accounting for all of BGSU's scores in the upset of Minnesota. The BGSU win halted Minnesota's 21-game winning streak against non-conference teams, which was the longest in the nation heading into the week. McDonald navigated the BGSU offense against the nation's No. 14 defense, which has only allowed 255 yards of total offense over the last 120 minutes of football. His first touchdown of the game snapped Minnesota's streak of 87:24 of game time without allowing points. Tailing in the late in third quarter, 10-7, led BGSU on an 8-play, 65-yard drive to take the lead for good. His rush on a 4th and 1 opportunity from the BG 43 went for 18 yards. Four plays later BG was in the end zone and on top for good. The 18-yard rush was BG's longest of the game. Lost 32 yards rushing via sacks. - MAC Football

  Quarterback Matt McDonald ran for a pair of scores, and two late interceptions by the Bowling Green defense sealed the win as the Falcons shocked heavily-favored Minnesota, 14-10, on homecoming Saturday. The loss snapped Minnesota's streak of 21 straight non-conference wins, the longest streak in the country entering Saturday's game. The Gophers' last non-conference loss was Sept. 3, 2015 against TCU. It also marked Minnesota's first loss to a non-Power 5 conference opponent since losing to North Dakota State on Sept. 24, 2011. "Give Bowling Green a lot of credit," said Gophers head coach P.J. Fleck. "I know how excited they are, and they deserve it and they earned it. We did not deserve to win that football game whatsoever." Bowling Green came to Minneapolis as 31-point underdogs but used a strong defensive effort to slow down the Golden Gopher offense.

Minnesota's fans booed their team at numerous points in the game, while Falcons players jumped on the field in celebration after the upset was complete. "I couldn't be more happy for a group of kids that have really been through a lot," said Bowling Green head coach Scott Loeffler. "We've got the 24-hour rule. We're going to celebrate for 24 hours, and then we're going to get back to the office." The Gophers had the ball with a chance to take the lead late in the fourth quarter after Bowling Green failed to fall on a muffed punt by Minnesota's Trey Potts. But one play after recovering the fumble, quarterback Tanner Morgan lofted a deep interception into the hands of Devin Taylor with 2:13 remaining. Morgan threw another pick with 17 seconds remaining. The Gophers' passing game struggled all day against the Falcons. Morgan was just 5-of-13 for 59 yards. - Bowling Green/AP College Football

  Matt McDonald threw for a touchdown and ran for another and Bowling Green ended a 10-game losing streak with a 27-10 win over FCS-level Murray State on Saturday. The Falcons (1-2), who went 0-5 in the pandemic shortened 2020 season, dominated the second half behind McDonald, outscoring the Racers 17-0. Bowling Green took the opening drive of the second half and went 71 yards in 13 plays, capped by McDonald's plunge over the right side.

Another lengthy drive led to Nate Needham's second field goal in the closing seconds of the third quarter. A third long drive, capped by McDonald flipping a 5-yard clincher to Taron Keith, wrapped it up in the middle of the fourth quarter. McDonald finished 22 of 28 for 221 yards with an interception. Bowling Green had 210 yards in the second half to 83 for Murray State and a 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession. Damonta Witherspoon scored the Racers' touchdown on a 6-yard run in the second quarter. Murray State finished with 201 total yards. - Bowling Green/AP College Football

  SEPT 13 MAC EAST DIVISION OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Matt McDonald, Bowling Green, QB, Senior, Newport Beach, Calif. (Mission Viejo),...McDonald passed for a career-high 308 yards against South Alabama. The 308 yards was the best by a MAC quarterback in Week No. 2. After South Alabama took its first lead of the game, immediately led the offense on a 3-play 83-yard drive to retake the lead on a 33-yard scoring strike to Andrew Bench (1st career reception). - MAC Football

  BGSU is coming off a 38-6 season opening loss in front of 80,000 fans at Tennessee that saw the Falcons shut out the Volunteers in the second quarter, trailing by just one possession, 14-6, at halftime. "There were some great moments," Loeffler said. "The second quarter in particular, I think all three phases played superior together, and we did some really good things. I thought defensively we tackled better, but still giving up a few too many big plays. "Offensively, we struggled running the football. I thought we threw the football and protected fairly well. I thought (senior quarterback) Matt McDonald played well along with (linebacker) Darren Anders on the other side of the football." McDonald completed a career-high 25 passes, surpassing his previous best of 17 against Buffalo in 2020.

His offense did so well in the second quarter, they controlled the pace and kept Tennessee's offense off the field. "We kind of got in and out of different tempos and throwing out of the pocket - a lot of sprint outs. They were easy 'gimmes,'" McDonald said. "I looked over during that drive and I saw their defensive line exhausted, and they had to sub out. It was a cool sight to see. "It's something that this team has to build on. The sky's the limit for this team. We've just got to build off this and become more confident going forward," McDonald continued. - Sentinel Tribune

  BG coach Scot Loeffler said starter Matt McDonald has been "banged up" the past two weeks. Although Loeffler did not elaborate on the injury, McDonald briefly left the Falcons' game at Ohio. In any case, McDonald's numbers this season haven't been pretty. In four games, he has completed 40 of 97 passes for 577 yards with one touchdown and six interceptions. If McDonald can't go against Akron, the Falcons have only two other available quarterbacks: freshmen LaBronz Davis and Riley Keller. Davis played in place of McDonald at Ohio. - Sentinel Tribune
