Bowling Green at Eastern Michigan

Bowling Green smothers Eastern Michigan 58-7


YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) Matt Johnson passed for three touchdowns to Ronnie Moore and Travis Green ran for two more scores as Bowling Green dominated Eastern Michigan 58-7 on Saturday to set up a showdown for the Mid-American Conference East Division title.

The Falcons (8-3, 6-1) will travel to play Buffalo for a Friday game that will determine the division champion.

The Eagles (2-9, 1-6) took their only lead when Johnson threw his only interception in the first quarter. Sean Kurtz returned it 10 yards and EMU had a 7-3 lead. The Eagles offense, however, would only manage 65 yards, including 4 passing in the loss, their 11th in the last 12 meetings with Bowling Green.

After the interception, Johnson connected for two first-quarter scores to Moore, who finished with a career-high 161 yards on seven catches.

Johnson finished with 264 yards on 13-of-23 passing. Green ran for 126 yards on 15 carries.
