Hi bro! favored Bowling Green vs Pittsburgh Panthers Live will be broadcast in hdq Little Caesars Bowl @ ESPN-TV. Pittsburgh, Panthers, vs Bowling Green, Live, Falcons, Pittsburgh Panthers, vs, Bowling Green Falcons, Live, Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan, Panthers vs Falcons Live, Panthers vs Falcons, Bowling Green vs Pittsburgh Live, Now that Christmas is officially over, it is time for the College Football bowl season to start! One of those bowl games you should be looking forward to will happen on Thursday night when the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Bowling Green Falcons meet in the Little Caesars Bowl.
It’s a mixed bag of predictions as some people wisely choose Bowling Green, while others lean towards the Panthers, who needed a blocked extra point just to get into a bowl game. What is this world coming to?
Time/TV: 6 p.m. ET/ESPN. Surface: Artificial.
Glantz-Culver line: Bowling Green by 4½. Sagarin difference: Bowling Green by 7.45.
Bowl records: Pitt 12-17, Bowling Green 4-6. Series: Pitt leads 2-1 (Bowling Green won last meeting 27-17 in 2008).
Bowling Green’s team and fans showed their mettle at the MAC Championship Game. As a reward, both groups get a return trip to Detroit for the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. It’s BGSU’s first bowl trip to Detroit in 10 years. But without Dave Clawson around to coach the team, will their be a drop off come game time?
Bowling Green wanted to be here. They earned the right to be here. Their fans clamored for the team to play here. Now, the Bowling Green Falcons get to play a bowl game less than two hours from home and enter the game as MAC champions for the first time since 1992. Their reward is to be the only Mid-American Conference bowl team this season with a shot at one of the “big boys” — a team from a conference that, for a few more weeks anyway, is known as a “BCS conference”.
The Bowling Green Falcons and Pittsburgh Panthers are set to square off in the 2013 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl later today. What do the experts think? Let’s take a look…
SB Nation: Four of the six writers picked Bowling Green. Only Bud Elliott and Luke Zimmermann strayed to the Panthers’ side, but what do they know? Well, plenty, obviously. Elliott is 5-1 so far, while Zimmermann is a very respectably 4-2. And both would be even better if Washington State had not completely crapped the bed against Colorado State. Bill Connelly…
CBS Sports: The official preview prediction is 27-17 in favor of Bowling Green, but four of the six “experts” who were polled actually picked Pittsburgh. Kudos to Dennis Dodd and Chip Patterson for believing in #MACtion.
Athlon Sports: David Fox handled the preview and prediction for this game at Athlon. He was certainly very complementary to Pittsburgh, but when push came to shove, he chose Bowling Green as his expected winner. He believes in #MACtion, at least against one of the ACC’s gazillion mediocre teams.
Bleacher Report: This prediction came out right after the bowl games were announced, but we’re not going to complain, right? Sean Frye says that Bowling Green will win by two touchdowns, so you’ve gotta respect his respect for #MACtion, especially against the clearly inferior #ACCtion.
Sports Illustrated: Stewart Mandel picks Pittsburgh. However, you have to take his selection with a grain of salt. In his explanation, he can’t even bother to get Travis Greene’s yardage total correct — the number he cites is from BEFORE the MAC Championship Game. C’mon, Stew! Bad info = a big no-no.
ESPN: Mark Schlabach picks Bowling Green by eight, and he cites Matt Johnson as “Who to Watch”. Clearly, he knows what he’s talking about. He also predicted the Colorado State upset of Washington State in the New Mexico Bowl. We’ll ignore his other predictions at this point.
USA Today: There’s a six-member panel for USA Today’s picks, and they’re split right down the middle on the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Three pick the Panthers, and three pick the Falcons. The game can’t end in a tie, so USA Today needs a seventh person to break this prediction deadlock. I volunteer myself.
Hustle Belt: In the only picks that really matter, 11 of our 12 polled contributors picked Bowling Green to beat Pittsburgh. I won’t name names, but we’ve got one wet blanket in the room. For the sake of #MACtion, let’s hope he’s not the wise one among us all.
Now, it’s time for Bowling Green to step up and represent the MAC as only champions can. If the 2013 Falcons want more respect, they can cement a permanent amount of it by beating Pittsburgh. As they say, it’s put-up or shut-up time.
By The Numbers
The Pittsburgh Panthers enter this game 6-6 overall and finished the ACC season with a 3-5 record. They squeaked into bowl eligibility thanks to a blocked extra point in a 17-16 win over Syracuse on Nov. 23rd. The Panthers are led by defensive lineman Aaron Donald, widely recognized as one of (if not the) best defensive players in the country. Donald won every important award given to defensive players and was named ACC Defensive Player of the Year. On offense, the team is led by the connection of senior quarterback Tom Savage and freshman wide receiver Tyler Boyd.
The Bowling Green Falcons are 10-3 overall and won seven of eight games in the MAC to qualify for the 2013 MAC Championship Game. In that contest, they defeated 12-0 Northern Illinois, 47-27, at Ford Field. Despite having no one with truly stand-out individual statistics, the BGSU defense is one of the nation’s best. They allow only 166 passing yards per game and gave up fewer than 200 points for the entire season. On offense, the Falcons feature a 3,000-yard passer and a running back with a school-record 1,500 yards.

Synopsis: The realities of life in the Mid-American Conference were all too clear for Bowling Green fans, who watched their team win the league title only to see coach Dave Clawson lured away by Wake Forest. The Falcons will be led in this game by special-teams coordinator Adam Scheier before former Eastern Illinois head man Dino Babers takes the reins.
Kick off for the game is set for 6 PM ET and can be seen on ESPN or live at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. If you are unable to watch the game live on TV, you can catch the live stream by clicking here.
Although the Pittsburgh Panthers will enter this game as favorites, the Bowling Green Falcons are no joke.
“Bowling Green was impressive not only in their MAC Championship win, but all season long and we have a competitive game of football ahead,” Panthers coach Paul Chryst said.
Chryst is happy to be playing in this bowl game on Thursday night, but he can’t help but be a little disappointed without things went for his team this season . He was hoping they would be good enough to challenge for a spot in a BCS bowl game.
“This has been a fun season, but it certainly hasn’t always gone the way we would have liked,” Chryst said. “I think we’ve got the program headed in the right direction, and we’re bringing back the tradition of Pitt football, but we’re still at the point where it is hard to say what is going to happen on a week-to-week basis.”
Interim coach Adam Scheier will lead the Falcons in this bowl game against the Panthers. He replaces former coach Dave Clawson who accepted a job at Wake Forest.
“You go from winning a championship one day as a position coach to suddenly being in front of the whole team the next day as the head coach, getting them ready for a bowl game,” said Scheier, in his fifth season with the Falcons. “I’ve never been through this, and neither have been any of the players. They’ve been playing for coach Clawson since they got here, and now it is going to be different.”
“We had a players-only meeting and the senior leadership got up and reminded all of the guys that this is our program, and that we need to finish off what we’ve achieved thus far,” Falcons defensive back BooBoo Gates said. “It doesn’t matter that coach (Clawson) is gone. We need to step up and do this.”
If we had to put money on this game, we would put it on the Pittsburgh Panthers to cover the spread. The Bowling Green Falcons will have a hard time gathering themselves after all of the coaching messes they have gone through in recent weeks.
The Panthers’ first full season in the Atlantic Coast Conference was something of a mixed bag, with a non-conference victory against Notre Dame and a win vs. Coastal Division champion Duke highlighting an otherwise unremarkable 3-5 league record. But Pitt is capable of putting up points, which it will likely need to keep up with the high-flying Falcons. Directing the attack for the Panthers is QB Tom Savage, with WRs Devin Street and Tyler Boyd doing most of the work downfield.
Falcons S Jerry “BooBoo” Gates will try to keep the big gainers to a minimum. BGSU QB Matt Johnson finished off a terrific season with a five-TD performance in the MAC title game against Northern Illinois. His deep WR corps is led by Shaun Joplin, though his most frequent end-zone finder is Ronnie Moore. TB Travis Greene lends plenty of ground support, but he and Johnson must avoid DT Aaron Donald, Pitt’s multiple-award recipient.
