After crushing consistent MAC-powerhouses Miami University and Ohio U 45-3 and 49-0 in the 2013 football season, your Bowling Green Falcons landed the MAC’s East Division and headed to the conference championship in pursuit of their 11th title. Their opponent? The two-time defending MAC Champs and 18th-ranked Northern Illinois Huskies, who were running an undefeated record in their last 25 conference games.
Despite the Huskies entering as heavy favorites, your Falcons were hardly intimidated, having notched a 9-3 regular-season behind the unrelenting arm of quarterback Matt Johnson. And once Johnson’s gunslinging began in the championship game, there was no ceasefire. He connected for 393 yards and five touchdowns to architect one of the greatest upsets in MAC Championship history, baging BG its first MAC title in more than 20 years. Don’t let the cold keep you from watching your Falcons take #12 down at Doyt Perry Stadium. Ay Ziggy Zoomba!
