  The Bowling Green State University football program has added five additional transfers, according to head football coach Scot Loeffler. Offensive tackle Cedric Dunbar II (Jackson State), offensive guard Delonus Kabir (Florida A&M), wide receiver CJ Lewis (Boston College), defensive lineman Kitione Tau (Laney CC) and offensive tackle Kameron Stewart (Coastal Carolina) have signed letters of acceptance to BGSU. All five are on campus and working out with the team.

Dunbar II (Natchez, Mississippi) will have two seasons of eligibility after spending three years at Jackson State, two of which playing for head coach Deion Sanders. He appeared in 26 career games with 24 career starts. In 2021 Dunbar II started all 12 games in which he appeared, helping Jackson State go 11-2 and win the SWAC championship. JSU finished the season ranked No. 19 in the FCS coaches poll and No. 22 by STATS. - Sentinel Tribune

  Spring camp breeds competition within each college football program. Some, more than others. But when the clouds of dust settle, contenders arise. Whether it be for a starting position, for a reserve role, or simply for a chunk of playing time, some players get ahead in fall camp and make noticeable strides in their own skill sets. After Bowling Green State University's spring football game in April, one of those standouts was singled out by coach Scot Loeffler. "Really proud of Alex Wollschlaeger," Loeffler said. "Alex Wollschlaeger, hands down, is the most improved lineman out there. And he played a bunch last year, but he had a really good spring." Wollschlaeger appeared in four games and started two on a rebuilding Bowling Green State University offensive line last season.

The 6-foot-7 sophomore was part of a unit that largely struggled but flashed at times, especially toward the end of the season. He earned his first career start against Murray State, in which BGSU ran for two touchdowns as a team, and got another score from a five-yard pass to running back Taron Keith. His other start came in October at Northern Illinois, in which BGSU rushed for 5.8 yards per carry and a touchdown. He saw time at guard, but given a few incoming transfers and more jockeying for up-in-the-air starting roles, the competition is on across the 2022 line, save for the center position, which is occupied by Jakari Robinson. Wollschlaeger said he feels home at tackle, and has been working to bulk up for the position. He said his weight is just shy of 300 pounds, but he's aiming to eclipse that before the start of training camp. - Toledo Blade

  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
