  Draft Scout by Conference









  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
