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
BOWLING GREEN COACH MOE ANKNEY:
Moe Ankney (BGSU '64), the 13th head coach
at Bowling Green, is 14-23-1 overall in his
fourth season at BGSU. His teams have a
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
teams are 36-25-2 in MAC play, winning the
MAC Championship in 1984.
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:
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
