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.

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.

Shortly after its return from Cancun, Mexico, the Bowling Green State University men's basketball team was in the Stroh Center shooting free throws.
Louis Orr, in his seventh year as the Falcons' head coach, was unhappy with the free-throw shooting in a 63-54 loss to Oral Roberts in the Cancun Classic. The Falcons were 7-of-12 from the line against Oral Roberts last Wednesday, including a 4-of-9 effort in the second half when the Falcons scored only 21 points.
The extra practice paid off Monday night, especially in the second half of BG's 74-62 win over Western Kentucky. The Falcons were 8-of-15 from the line in the first half, but made 21-of-27 in the second half, including 10 straight at one point.  PHOTO GALLERY
''Coach Orr has been harping on that. As soon as we got off the bus, we went in the gym and practiced free throws,'' BG's Spencer Parker said. ''That's something we have been focusing a lot on.''
