Bowling Green Falcons Football Bowl History

Bowling Green, a participant in the 1961 Mercy Bowl to help raise funds for the families of Cal Poly players who died in a plane crash that year, did not appear in a traditional postseason bowl game until 1982. Interestingly enough, the Falcons faced Fresno State in each of their program's first four bowl games. In recent years BGSU has been up and down in the MAC standings appearing in seven bowl games from 2003-2014.
