Halftime - BGSU 14, MSU 14

Thoughts on the first half:

This game should be 28-14, but its not thanks to a terrible call on a BGSU fumble that MSU would have returned for a score if not for an "inadvertent whistle" and a bad interception by Brian Hoyer towards the end of the first half.

For some reason, the MSU running attack is not on track like it should be, only rushing for 59 yards in the half (led by Javon Ringer's 46 yards). The Spartans really need to have the running game fired up to be successful in this game. With the running game, MSU will wear down the smaller Falcons.

As expected the MSU secondary is being tested by the BGSU passing game, led by Tyler Sheehan's 214 yards, one TD and one interception.

Look for the defense to continue to play well and MSU to pound the ball more to wear down Bowling Green.
