Johnson and Davidson honored by MAC

Well...Matt Johnson has done it again.  MAC East Offensive Player of the Week. Very little doubt here, but you account for 6 TDs, that makes a pretty good statement.  Hopefully Falcon fans will appreciate this guy, he's special.

Joseph Davidson was MAC East Special Teams player of the week, which was also deserved.  Davidson is a really good player who has been very productive.  He also got like three years of game experience last year.  He has a very long leg and is pretty consistent, he rarely shanks one.  Certainly among the best at his position in the MAC.

Below are the write ups from the MAC:

Offensive Player of the Week: Bowling Green QB Matt Johnson
Bowling Green senior quarterback Matt Johnson (Harrisburg, Pa.) passed for 430 yards and five touchdowns in a 48-0 win at Kent State on Saturday – Bowling Green's fifth consecutive victory. The Falcons, now 4-0 in MAC play, are off to their best league start since the 2003 season. For Johnson, it was his sixth 400-yard game of the season in just eight weeks, and his third consecutive game in which he has passed for five touchdowns. Johnson also added 45 yards rushing and another touchdown, accounting for six total touchdowns for the second time this season. Johnson now leads the nation with 3,321 passing yards this season and has passed for 29 touchdowns and just three interceptions. His six 400-yard games mark the second-most for a quarterback through their first eight games of a season since the 2000 campaign. Johnson has passed for 300 yards in all eight games this season.

Special Teams Player of the Week: Bowling Green P Joseph Davidson
Bowling Green sophomore punter Joseph Davidson (Findlay, Ohio) flipped the field against Kent State, aiding the Falcons in a dominating 48-0 shutout on Saturday. Davidson punted four times for a 52.5 yards per punt average, and did not allow any Kent State returns. All four of Davidson's punts traveled over 42 yards, while his first punt of the day went 71 yards and was downed at the Kent State one-yard line.
