There will be 11 players on the field for each team on every play during the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl game between Bowling Green and Pittsburgh on Thursday.
Kickoff is at 6 p.m. in Detroit’s Ford Field.
However, the key matchup for the game could come down to four players — Bowling Green’s interior offensive linemen Dominic Flewellyn (left guard), ‘Chief’ Kekuewa (center), and Alex Huettel (right guard) — against Pittsburgh’s standout defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

The Falcons gambled on Matt Johnson, and it paid off in a big way.
After a spirited battle in spring practices and fall drills between Johnson and Matt Schilz, the Bowling Green State University football coaching staff decided to use both quarterbacks in the season-opener against Tulsa.
Johnson came in for the third series against Tulsa and has started every game since, leading the Falcons to a 10-3 overall record, a conference championship, and a bowl game. Bowling Green plays Pittsburgh in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl Thursday with kickoff at 6 p.m. in Detroit’s Ford Field.
‘‘I think sometimes there is greater risk in not making a move like that,’’ said former BG head coach Dave Clawson, who made the final decision to use Johnson.
‘‘We want to run a competitive program, and we tell our players every day that they are fighting for a job, they’re fighting for playing time,’’ Clawson added. ‘‘If you are truly that way, I don’t think you can protect anybody. You need internal competition.’’

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Sometimes poor shooting can be overcome in basketball.
And despite leading host Purdue in a number of statistical categories Sunday, the Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team did not make enough baskets, as Purdue held on for a 57-48 victory.
The Falcons were only 17-of-65 (26.2 percent) from the field, including a 2-of-19 effort on 3-pointers (10.5 percent).
Bowling Green held a 39-36 rebounding advantage, committed fewer fouls and forced the Boilermakers into nearly twice as many turnovers.
‘‘The bottom line is you have to make shots to win, and we did not make enough shots to win,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘I think we are a good 3-point shooting team, and we go 2-of-19.
‘‘We got a lot of good looks. We had a couple of breakaway layups we missed. We had a couple of follow-ups we missed,’’ Roos added.

D.J. Lynch
The competition for playing time has helped D.J. Lynch become the player that he is today for the Bowling Green football Falcons.
Lynch, a 5-foot-11, 244-pound redshirt junior, is the Falcons' leading tackler this season. A linebacker, Lynch has 78 tackles, including a team-high 7.5 tackles for loss.
He was a second-team All-Mid-American Conference selection this fall.
After making three starts in the past two years when he was battling Paul Swan for playing time, Lynch is a full-time starter this season.
''I been playing behind him for two years,'' Lynch said about Swan. ''I've been learning from him for two years, and now this was a chance for me to show what I can do as a starter. I just go out there and play my best.''
The competition was intense.

There is some competitive spirit and toughness being displayed by Bowling Green’s men’s basketball team in the last few weeks.
The grit and determination surfaced again Sunday afternoon as the Falcons held on for a 64-62 win over Detroit at the Stroh Center.
Bowling Green is now 6-5 overall, having won three straight and four of its last five games.
‘‘We’re doing it together. We have a good group of guys. They are maturing as a group and individually,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said.
‘‘We’ve been playing real good basketball. Even the games that we lost were real close games,’’ said BG’s Anthony Henderson, a redshirt junior. ‘‘We have a lot of confidence right now.’’
In a game that saw five lead changes and four ties, Henderson’s basket off an offensive rebound gave the Falcons a 63-60 lead over the Titans with 1:36 left to play.
