ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — It has been steady progress for the Bowling Green State University football team.
Four years ago, the Falcons were 2-10.
Now after beating Buffalo, 24-7 on Friday in a win or go home game, BG is 9-3 and preparing for the Mid-American Conference championship game.
The Falcons, champions of the MAC East at 7-1, face Northern Illinois on Friday at Detroit’s Ford Field. Kickoff is at 8 p.m.
Also, with the win over Buffalo, the Falcons have earned a berth in a post-season bowl game, as the two division winners are assured of a bowl game.
“It’s a rewarding process,” BG head coach Dave Clawson said. “It’s getting the right people on board, and we did that in terms of our staff and our players; we’ve recruited good people and I have a great coaching staff.
‘’This is a collective effort … I’m just fortunate enough to be the head coach.”

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Bowling Green’s football team is headed to the Mid-American Conference championship game for the first time in a decade.
Sparked by a solid performance from their defense and big plays for the offense, the Falcons rallied for a 24-7 win over Buffalo Friday afternoon in Ralph Wilson Stadium.
“This is a great feeling. I’m really proud of our football team,” BG head coach Dave Clawson said. “A lot of people have worked hard for a number of years.’’
It’s BG’s first MAC outright division title since the Falcons won the West in 2003, before losing in the championship game to Miami.
With the victory over Buffalo, the Falcons secured the MAC East title and a spot in the conference championship game against Northern Illinois.
The MAC title game is next Friday at 8 p.m. in Detroit’s Ford Field.
The Falcons trailed 7-3 at the half, but turned things around in the final 30 minutes on both sides of the ball.

It's been a whirlwind month for the Bowling Green State University women's basketball team.
The Falcons have played seven regular-season games in November, going 6-1, with only one game at home. The 6-1 start, which includes wins over Michigan and Ohio State, has generated some interest in the national polls.
Bowling Green starts December with a game Sunday at Springfield, Mass. against Monmouth University at 10 a.m. It's the finale of four games for the Falcons in the Basketball Hall of Fame Challenge.
''We're excited right now where we stand at 6-1, yet everybody knows that your non-conference record is exactly that, your non-conference record. Things start to count when you get to conference play,'' BG head coach Jennifer Roos said.

Lake Superior's already emerging as the surprise team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
The Lakers - eighth in the WCHA coaches poll - are ranked 16th nationally, and 7-4-1 overall and 3-3 in the league.
They host Bowling Green (6-5-3, 4-3-1) this weekend.
"It's a testament to their brand and their coaching staff, and some of their returning seniors," BG coach Chris Bergeron said. "It's a by-committee-type success. They don't rely on this guy or that guy."
The Lakers are fifth in the WCHA in scoring (2.92 goals per game) and eighth in goals allowed (2.75).
"Now, they feel good about themselves and they should," Bergeron said. "They've been in the Top 20. They're winning games at home. They're winning games on the road. It's a very difficult group to play against."
WCHA: The second- through ninth-place teams in the WCHA are separated by just seven points.
Ferris State leads the 10-team league at 7-0-1. while Alabama-Huntsville is last at 0-8.

CANCUN, Mexico — The Bowling Green State University men’s basketball team led by 11 points early in the second half, but could not hold on Wednesday. Oral Roberts rallied down the stretch to beat the Falcons, 63-56.
The game was the finale of the Cancun Challenge.
‘‘If it was a 20 minute game, the way we played the first half, it would have been a great win,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said. ‘‘It’s a grind and we weren’t able to answer (in the second half).
‘‘Oral Roberts, they historically have been a strong program and they weren’t going to stop playing,’’ Orr added. ‘‘We knew we had to answer their runs, and keep fighting, but we didn’t.’’
