Bowling Green University moved to 4-0 after defeating Michigan State 56-5 Saturday.

Bowling Green scored first but Michigan State tied it early. After that, though, it was all BGSU.

The Spartans made too many mistakes with the ball, and Bowling Green ounished them every time. Despite making a few mistakes of their own, the Falcons were able to contain Michigan State counter-attacking efforts.

Bowling Green Head Coach Tony Mazzarella made several changes in his lineup, but Michigan State has had injury trouble and, as the B-side score of 102-0 showed, their depth has been tested.

Michigan State kept battling, but their miscues and interceptions usually resulted in a Bowling Green try.

Flyhalf Max Narewski scored two tries and two conversions for Bowling Green, while center Dominic Mauer, No. 8 Mike Ziegler and lock Ed Luther each scored twice.

This win sets up next week’s big clash between 4-0 Bowling Green and 4-0 Davenport, which took down previously-undefeated Miami of Ohio 49-15 Saturday.

Also this weekend, Indiana won big over Purdue 51-26. That was the hard-luck Indiana program’s first league win.

But the top three are Davenport, Bowling Green and Miami, and after next weekend, there will be only one.
