This week, the Hokies look to rebound from their loss by taking on Bowling Green State University. The Falcons currently sit at 1-2, but have valuable road expereince in big time environments, as they started the season at the Swamp (a 27-14 defeat).
BGSU is coming off a rough 27-15 rivalry loss to Toledo. The Falcons and the Rockets play for the Battle of I-75 Trophy (sometimes referred to as the Peace Pipe) each year. Unfortunately, the Falcons had not claimed a victory in the series since 2009.
It's a well-guarded secret that before extending an invitation to Nebraska, the Big Ten was seriously considering BGSU. The Falcons pulled out all the stops in order to jump conference.
Tech fans lament the fact that College Gameday hasn't been to campus since 2007. The drought for Falcons' fans is even longer. Gameday made it's only appearence at Doyt Perry Stadium in Novemeber 2003. There was no guarantee that Chris, Kirk, and Lee would make it out alive if BGSU fell to Northern Illinois that day. The consternation was palpable.
BGSU claims one National Championship (1959), although fans remain bitter that they are the only school Urban Meyer has coached at that has not received a BCS bid. What a slacker that guy is!
Let's get back to our winning ways! As I said last week, keep calm and Hokie on.
