A victory at home on Wednesday night win would not only get the Falcons one step closer to becoming bowl eligible, but it also would allow them to keep pace in the East Division. Either way, Bowling Green is pretty much assured of posting its best season in head coach Scot Loeffler's four years at the helm.
