DETROIT — It’s been a busy week for Adam Scheier, the interim head coach for the Bowling Green football Falcons.
Scheier was officially announced as the interim coach on Tuesday, the same day as Dave Clawson, BG’s head coach for the last past five years, was named head coach at Wake Forest.
‘‘You’re learning every day, but as an assistant coach with aspirations of being a head coach there is no better experience than experience, and I’m gaining that right now,’’ Scheier said Friday afternoon at the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl media luncheon. ‘‘This is going to be an unbelievable two weeks. There is a task at hand, and there is an outcome we hope to achieve on the 26th.
‘‘I’m going to enjoy it. I’m going to learn from it, and I’m going to do my best to keep this program going in the right direction,’’ he continued. ‘‘For those of you who have followed us for five years, you’re seen the progress. That’s been the most amazing thing, that it went exactly according to plan. It was culminated last Friday night with the MAC (Mid-American Conference) championship win.
‘‘Now we have one more opportunity.’’
Bowling Green faces Pittsburgh on Dec. 26 with kickoff at 6 p.m. in Ford Field.

Tommy Burke
Tommy Burke was played well overall for Bowling Green's hockey team.
The next step for him is to be sharp on a consistent basis.
Burke is working hard to eliminate the one so-called soft goal he allows each game - the routine shot a goalie should stop that end up in the net - from his game that have plagued him during the last month.
He's off to a good start. The sophomore is coming off a 18-save shutout  in a 3-0 win over Alabama-Huntsville last Friday.
Burke has alternated starts with freshman Tomas Sholl, and will be in goal tonight when  BG visits Michigan Tech in the opener of a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series.
"I'm more comfortable this season," said Burke, who has a 2.26 goals-against average and a  .907 save percentage in eight games this season.

HOUGHTON, Mich. — Tommy Burke made 39 saves and Kevin Dufour scored twice to help Bowling Green to a 3-2 win over Michigan Tech in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association game Friday.
Burke was outstanding on a night the Falcons were out-shot by a 41-18 margin.
Dufour scored twice to give the Falcons a 3-1 lead.  BOX SCORE
The freshman snapped a 1-1 tie with 4:20 remaining in the second period and increased the lead to 3-1 just 1:42 into the third period.
Tech cut BG’s lead to one goal when Alex Petan scored with 2:43 remaining, but the Falcons held on to improve to 8-8-3 overall and 6-6-1 in the WCHA. Tech is 6-9-4, 4-4-3.
The win was just BG’s third in the last nine games. The Falcons are 3-5-1 in that span, even though they held a lead late in the second period or the third period in those five losses and the one tie.
