Bowling Green (10-3) enters the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl (Thursday, 6 p.m., ESPN) on a five-game winning streak, including an impressive, 47-27, victory over Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship Game. The Falcons have defeated their opponents by an average 35 points over that five-game stretch, and have defeated their opponent by more than 20 points in all ten of their wins this seasons.
Pittsburgh enters this game with a more talented roster but with a 6-6 record. This will be senior quarterback Tom Savage’s last chance as a Pittsburgh Panther to impress scouts against the nation’s fifth-ranked scoring defense. Additionally, Pittsburgh senior defensive tackle Aaron Donald has been arguably the best defensive player in college football this season.
