FALCONS TAKE ON TOLEDO IN 67TH HOMECOMING GAME

Coach Moe Ankney's Falcons (2-3 overall,

2-1 MAC), locked in a four-way tie for second

place in the Mid-American Conference stan-

dings, renew their spirited "I-75" rivalry with

the Toledo Rockets (2-3, 2-1), today, at Doyt

L. Perry Field.

It is Homecoming Week at BGSU, and the

1:30 p.m. BG-Toledo game marks the 67th

annual Homecoming football game at the

University. The Falcons have compiled an im-

pressive 39-18-9 record while playing in front

of the alumni over the years.

Bowling Green, fresh from a 31-28 victory

at Ohio University, is out to string together two

wins for the first time since the 1987 season,

when the Falcons posted back-to-back wins

over Ohio U. (28-7) and Toledo (20-6). The

winner of today's game gains possession of

the Peace Pipe for the next year.

Toledo dropped its first MAC game of the

season last week at Eastern Michigan, 31-14.

The Rockets own a pair of MAC wins over

Ohio U. (27-18) and Ball State (29-22), while

losing twice in Big Ten territory, Wisconsin

(10-23) and Indiana (12-32).

Looking ahead, BG's game at Eastern

Michigan, Oct. 21, has been moved from 6

p.m. to 12:30 p.m. to accommodate television.

It will be the MAC TV Game of the Week at

Ypsilanti.

BOWLING GREEN COACH MOE ANKNEY:

13-13-1 mark in MAC games.

TOLEDO COACH DAN SIMRELL:

Simrell (Toledo '65) has coached the Rockets

to a 45-36-2 overall record in eight years. His

MAC Championship in 1984.

THE SERIES:

Bowling Green leads the all-

time series 28-21-4 dating back to the 1919

season. However, Toledo won last year's BG-

UT contest, 34-5, at the Glass Bowl. The

home team has won the last five meetings.

The losing team has scored six points or less

in eight of the last nine meetings. Strangely

enough, the Rockets haven't scored a

touchdown at Perry Field since the 1979

season. Since then, BG has shut-out the

Rockets twice (38-0 in 1981 and 21-0 in 1985)

and limited to them just two field goals in 1983

(a 6-3 Rocket win) and 1987 (20-6).

REVIEWING BG-TOLEDO, 1988:

Despite

392 yards of total offense, the Falcons could

muster only five points at the Glass Bowl last

ye r, losing 34-5 to the Rockets. Both teams

entered the game with 0-3 records, but UT

grabbed an early lead and never looked back.

The Rockets led 17-5 at the half, and then

added 10 third-quarter points to pull away for

the 29-point win. It was Toledo's biggest

margin of victory in the series since a 33-0

decision in 1967. Toledo's Alan Smiley

rushed for 141 yards and three TDs. BG's
