In 2012, Bowling Green was satisfied with having a winning record and getting to a bowl game.
This year, the football Falcons want more.
BG, 9-3 overall, faces Northern Illinois, 12-0 and No. 16 in the AP poll, in the Mid-American Conference championship game Friday. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. at Detroit's Ford Field.
Last season, the Falcons lost to Kent State in the next-to-last game of the regular season, finishing 8-5 overall.
''Last year when we played Kent State we were just enjoying the moment. We were just happy to be in that game, not really caring if we won or lost, just happy to be there,'' BG's Alex Bayer, a fifth-year senior, said.
It was different this season, as BG went into the Buffalo game last Friday, ready to take the next step. The Falcons beat the Bulls, 24-7 to win the MAC East and advance to the title game. BG finished 7-1 in the MAC.

CLEVELAND — Led by three first-team selections, a total of 10 Bowling Green State University football players have earned All-Mid-American Conference honors.
David ‘Chief’ Kekuewa (center), Dominic Flewellyn (left guard), and Jerry ‘BooBoo’ Gates (safety), are BG's first-team selections. Gates is a repeat first-team pick.
Kekuewa, a senior captain, has anchored an offensive line which has led one of the top offensive units in the MAC. Kekuewa is in his second season with the Falcons having started all 25 games since arriving on campus. The Falcons have seen a huge increase in the rushing game in each of his two seasons. BG has averaged 180.4 rushing yards per game during his two seasons, but is averaging 209.7 yards per game rushing this season.

Bowling Green's hockey team will be without another one of its best forwards this weekend.
Adam Berkle will miss the Falcons' home series against Alabama-Huntsville because of a hip pointer, BG coach Chris Bergeron said Tuesday.
The teams play Friday and Saturday in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series.
Berkle was hurt last Friday at Lake Superior and didn't play in the series finale.
He didn't practice Monday or Tuesday, and was not expected back on the ice until later in the week or perhaps early next week, Bergeron said.
BG visits Michigan Tech Dec. 13-14 to finish the pre-Christmas part of its schedule.

BG successful on third down (12-03-13) PDF Print E-mail

In a season ladened with positive statistics for Bowling Green, the number of successful third-down conversions has played a major role in the success of the football Falcons.
Bowling Green, 9-3 overall, faces Northern Illinois, 12-0 and ranked No. 16 in the latest AP poll, in the Mid-American Conference championship game Friday. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. in Detroit's Ford Field.
The Falcons lead the MAC, converting 72-of-153 third-down opportunities, 47 percent.
There are several factors involved in converting third downs, and senior tight end Alex Bayer said it all starts with the offensive line.
The Falcons have seniors Dominic Flewellyn (left guard) and David 'Chief' Kekuewa (center), and redshirt sophomore Alex Huettel (right guard) in the middle. The three have combined for 95 starts as Falcons, with Flewellyn topping the entire team with 45 starts.
Redshirt freshmen Jacob Bennett and Logan Dietz have solidified the line at left and right tackle, respectively, this fall.
