Bowling Green Falcons Tickets
The Bowling Green Falcons began playing football in 1919, a few years after the university was established. The team's beginnings were humble; they played on a local field behind the school. The original team was composed of 19 men, which was more than half of the 36 total students that were enrolled in the school at the time. In 1931, legendary coach Doyt Perry took the head coach position and changed the future of the Bowling Green Falcons. During Perry's career, the Falcons won five Mid-American Conference championships and one NCAA College Division National Championship. His winning percentage as a coach at the end of his career, .855, is in the top five of college football coaches. Notable Bowling Green alumni who have played in the NFL include Shaun Suisham, Teo Redding and Scott Mruczkowski. In addition to conference opponents, Bowling Green plays some of college football's most legendary opponents, including Notre Dame, Ohio State and Penn State.
