Matt Johnson...East Offensive Player of the Week Again

For the fifth time in the past seven weeks, Matt Johnson is the MAC East Offensive agin.  He had another crazy day and, as noted below, had 5 RDs and 5 incompletions.  Guy is having a great year, and I understand that Coach Babers said in his presser today that it is especially remarkable because it is his first year in the offense.  They are truly amazing.

I thought Scottie Miller would win for special teams, but Kent's (excellent) punter made a bunch of good punts to win the award.

Congrats Matt.

Bowling Green senior quarterback Matt Johnson (Harrisburg, Pa.) led the Falcons to a 59-10 win over Akron on Saturday, the Falcons largest margin of victory ever in the series with the Zips. Johnson completed 25-of-30 passes for 357 yards and five touchdowns. Johnson, who leads the country with 2,891 passing yards, had as many touchdown passes as he did incompletions. His five touchdown performance marked the third time this season Johnson has passed for at least five touchdowns. That feat had been accomplished just six times prior to the 2015 season in school history, which encompasses 95 seasons.
