Kent State vs. Bowling Green Prediction

I’m on Bowling Green here. I think there’s a bit of a letdown ahead for Kent State after their big win over the top seed in Toledo, but the reality is that Kent State is not the same top-tier MAC team of years past. The Falcons have solid scoring depth and one of the best scorers in the country in Marcus Hill. I think Bowling Green gets one over on Kent State and advances to the finals with a win and cover here, but I’ll take the points for safety.
