These two high scoring teams meet tonight in Buffalo with the loser all but being eliminated from Bowl consideration. Bowling Green’s high powered passing attack is led by Quarterback Tyler Sheehan. He has good numbers on the year. Over 65% passing efficiency with 15 Touchdowns to only 5 INT’s. Buffalo has more of a balanced offensive attack averaging almost 150 yards a game on the ground and 261 through the air. Leading rusher Ike Nduka (ankle) is expected to play on Tuesday for the Bulls. Bowling Green has allowed 225 yards a game on the ground on the road this year. This will probably be the usual high scoring game between these two teams, but I’ll take the Bulls at home in this game to cover the relatively small number.

Pick: Buffalo -3
