Pittsburgh provides an interesting challenge for the Bowling Green Falcon football team.
The teams will face each other Dec. 26 in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPN. Pitt is 6-6 and BG is 10-3.
''We're excited for the chance to play in another game against such a quality opponent," Pitt coach Paul Chryst said in a statement released by Pitt officials. "Bowling Green was impressive not only in its MAC championship win but all season long, and we have a competitive game of football ahead."
The Falcons will need to find a way to contain Pitt's Aaron Donald, who already has won the Bronko Nagurski Award and the Rotary Lombardi Award.
The Nagurski Award is given annually to the nation's top college defensive player. The Lombardi Award is presented annually to the nation's top college lineman.
Flashes from Gordon: Football coaches face no-win situation (12-12-13) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts while hoping Bowling Green State University hires Jim Tressel as its head football coach:

'TIS THE SEASON: Dave Clawson was in a no-win situation once he accepted the head coaching position at Wake Forest.
BG's former head coach wasn't going to be able to coach the Falcons in the Little Caesars Bowl.
It's a shame Clawson, his assistant coaches and their players won't have one last game to celebrate their success and hard work, and perhaps even beat Pittsburgh in the bowl game.
Unfortunately, that's the nature of college football and one of its necessary evils.
There aren't enough hours in a day for Clawson or any other head coach to prepare his old team for a game and transition to his new school at the same time, no matter how much energy they might have.
Clawson needs time to hire assistant coaches, start recruiting and prepare for spring practice at Wake. And that doesn't include finding a place to live and all of the details a move entails aside from the actual coaching.

Sparked by a strong second half from Richaun Holmes, the Bowling Green State University men’s basketball team beat North Dakota, 79-69, in the Stroh Center Wednesday.
Bowling Green held a 30-27 lead at the half with Holmes contributing two points, two rebounds, and one block while playing 16 of the first 20 minutes.  PHOTO GALLERY
The second half was a different story as Holmes scored 19 points, pulled down 14 rebounds, and blocked six shots as the Falcons won for the second time in the last three games.
‘‘I just wanted to be more aggressive in the second half; my teammates needed me,’’ Holmes said. ‘‘I’m just trying to do what I can for my teammates, and in response they are doing the same for me.

Berkle, Carpenter remain sidelined (12-11-13) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green's hockey team remains short-handed.
Adam Berkle and Ryan Carpenter won't play this weekend at Michigan Tech, Falcon coach Chris Bergeron said Tuesday.
Berkle has missed the last three games with a hip pointer. Carpenter hasn't played this season because of a broken finger and a broken foot.
They're two of BG's best forwards.
Berkle is skating in practice, but is "not showing signs of improvement to where he's an option for the weekend," Bergeron said, adding Berkle is "not even north of 80 percent" healthy.
After facing Tech, BG is idle until Dec. 27-28 until it plays in the Three Rivers Classic in Pittsburgh.
Bergeron is optimistic Berkle will be ready for those games.
No timetable has been set for Carpenter's return. The Pittsburgh games haven't been ruled out, but it might be BG's Jan. 3-4 series at Alabama-Huntsville for his return.
LINEUP: Dajon Mingo will remain on defense until BG is healthy, Bergeron said.
