Bowling Green 24, Eastern Michigan 21

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Chris Bullock scored on a 15-yard run
early in the fourth quarter and Bowling Green's defense stood tall
down the stretch in a 24-21 victory over Eastern Michigan on
Saturday.

The Falcons (4-3, 3-1 Mid-American Conference) led 17-7 late in
the first half before Eastern (0-6, 0-3) scored on a 23-yard pass
from Tyler Jones to Eric Deslauriers, who had earlier caught a
79-yard touchdown pass from Jones. The Eagles then took the lead
early in the third quarter on an 11-yard run by Pierre Walker.

Bullock, who rushed for 99 yards on 16 carries, capped a
12-play, 78-yard drive.

Eastern had the ball three times after that touchdown but never
seriously threatened. On the first two possessions, the Eagles lost
a total of nine yards on six plays before punting each time.

They got the ball for the final time with 3:04 left at their own
6. Jones' 5-yard pass to Dontayo Gage gave them a first down at
their own 32. Jones then threw two incompletions before Terrel
White picked up his second interception at the Eastern 42.

Anthony Turner completed 14-of-24 passes for 165 yards with no
interceptions for the Falcons, including a 33-yard touchdown pass
to Corey Partridge. Freddie Barnes added a 4-yard scoring run.

Jones hit on 24-of-38 passes for 260 yards with three
interceptions.
