COLLEGE CONNECTIONS: Ex-Panther Brown part of MAC champs

GOSHEN — Coy Brown is going bowling.

The NorthWood High School graduate is a sophomore reserve linebacker on the Bowling Green football team that defeated previously unbeaten Northern Illinois, 47-27, to win the Mid-American Conference championship.

Brown has played in all 13 games this season, making six tackles and assisting on five others.

The Bowling Green Falcons will be playing in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl on Thursday, Dec. 26 at 6 p.m. at Ford Field in Detroit.

This will be the 11th bowl game in program history and the third in the last five years under head coach Dave Clawson.

The Falcons had won five straight games outscoring their opponents 223-44 during the stretch.

Bowling Green features one of the nation’s best defenses and one of the MAC’s top offenses.

On the defensive side of the ball, Bowling Green ranks fifth in the nation in scoring defense, allowing just 14.8 points per game. The defense only allows 308.7 yards per game, which is eighth-best in the country. The Falcons are also fourth in all of FBS, surrendering just 166.2 yards per game through the air.
