DETROIT — In the end Pittsburgh was just too physical for the Bowling Green football Falcons.
The Panthers’ offensive and defensive lines pushed BG around for the majority of the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl Thursday in Pitt’s 30-27 victory at Ford Field.  PHOTO GALLERY
Bowling Green had battled back to tie the game at 27 with 4:42 remaining in regulation.
However, when it counted, Pittsburgh’s offense produced a field goal with 1:17 remaining in regulation, to give the Panthers a 30-27 lead.
Pitt’s defense then shut down BG’s last offensive opportunity to secure the victory. BG’s last play was a fourth-and-40 from the 1-yard line.
When asked if Pitt was the most physical team the Falcons had faced this season, interim head coach Adam Scheier said: ‘‘Without question ... physically they dominated both lines of scrimmage. The running back (James Conner) was a bear to tackle, as evidenced by the amount of tackles he broke.

Bowling Green red-shirt sophomore Dajon Mingo is academically ineligible and won’t play the rest of the season, Falcon hockey coach Chris Bergeron said Thursday.
Mingo became academically ineligible after the fall semester which ended Friday. Bergeron learned of Mingo’s status Tuesday.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder played forward and defense this season after playing forward last season.
An excellent skater who also is dangerous offensively, Mingo has three goals and eight assists in 18 games this season. He had eight goals and 14 assists in 41 games last season.

Flashes of Gordon: BG looking forward to second half (12-26-13) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts on the day after Christmas with family still being the best gift of all:

LOOKING AHEAD: Bowling Green's hockey team has reason to look forward to its final 16 games  of the season.
The Falcons have improved and played consistently well during the second half in each of Chris Bergeron's first three seasons as head coach.
And this season, the second-half schedule is manageable.
That doesn't guarantee success. But if BG can play well, it can overcome a disappointing first half of the season.
The Falcons believed they would contend for the Western Collegiate Hockey Association championship at the start of the season, but they're 8-8-4 overall and 6-6-2 in the league entering this weekend's games in the Three Rivers Classic.
They've played well for 40 minutes or more during most of their games, but the poor stretches during those games prevented BG from winning more. And the Falcons have battled injuries and a difficult schedule.

The Bowling Green fan base might just turn Ford Field into Perry Stadium North tonight.
The Falcons, 10-3, face Pittsburgh, 6-6, in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Kickoff is at 6 in Detroit's Ford Field.
Over 10,000 Falcon fans are expected to attend as Bowling Green went through its ticket allotment from the bowl game.
''We are one hour and change from campus. We are a close drive to a lot of our students and alumni,'' said BG interim head coach Adam Scheier. ''I think the fan support will be important.
''I just get goose bumps talking about it ... The last time we were there (for the Mid-American Conference championship game) we experienced a very emotional event.''
There may have been some concern with students being on break, that the BG contingent might not reach five figures.
