There’s been little for Bowling Green football fans to get excited about this year. Their team entered Week 6 at a winless 0-5 and thoughts of going 0-12 were starting to creep in.

So what better way to shatter that notion than with one of the wildest plays we’ll see all year?

As Miami (OH) lined up at the goal line down 30-29 with less than two minutes remaining, the Falcons pulled off the type of play that every defense dreams about.


A 99-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown to give a team its first win of the season is truly #MACtion at its finest.

There are now six teams remaining in the FBS without a win, Georgia Southern (0-4), Nevada (0-5), UMass (0-6), UTEP (0-6), Charlotte (0-5) and Baylor (0-5).
