BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- A strong showing by the Bowling Green defense along with miscues by the Tulsa offense put the Falcons on top of the Golden Hurricanes 34-7 Thursday at Perry Stadium.
Tulsa mistakes were frequent and costly. Bowling Green forced two fumbles and Ryan Burbrink returned a punt 67 yards in the fourth quarter for a 34-0 lead.

The Falcon defense held Tulsa to just 51 yards rushing and gave Tulsa quarterback Cody Green little time to set up to pass. Green completed 17 of 34 passes for 172 yards.
