UMass football has moved back to its reopened McGuirk Alumni stadium after two seasons of commuting to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro for home games, but apparently not all of the kinks are worked out.

Week 4 continued to show why college football is so great. How does Indiana go from losing on the road to a Bowling Green team that just gets crushed by Wisconsin, to a team that goes on the road and beats the No. 18-ranked team in the country…and from the SEC no less? Given the results seen around the Big Ten in the final week of true non-conference play, there’s been a lot...

Gabe Martin, Bowling Green Defense Continues to Struggle, and Other MAC Scouting Notes

Bowling Green’s featured linebacker and leader Gabe Martin had come back from a torn ACL injury in 2013, and was looking to get back to his All-MAC level for this season.  However, if anything this season has been a disaster for the Bowling Green defense (and for Martin).  The struggles for this defense continued on Saturday, with a thorough beaten by the hands of Wisconsin,...

Video: Jay Harris And Wisconsin’s Offensive Line Star In A New “This Is SportsCenter” Commercial

Numerous star athletes have starred in “This is SportsCenter” commercials over the years. On the heels of Wisconsin’s impressive 68-17 win over Bowling Green, in which the Badgers amassed 644 yards on the ground, it can be argued that the team’s offensive line fits the bill.

Badgers predictions: Game 3 vs. Bowling Green

After a week's break, football is back at Camp Randall Stadium. While Saturday's game features a MAC team in Bowling Green which runs a high-powered offense, I don't get the feeling that many think the Badgers are in trouble here.

Or perhaps Babers has a few tricks up his sleeve and simply is trying...
