Saturday has given us one of our first looks at a snow football game this college season.
The Bowling Green Falcons traveled to Akron today to take on the Zips in a Mid-Atlantic-Conference matchup. The 37-degrees-Fahrenheit forecast in Ohio has resulted in some pretty miserable conditions. Not quite freezing, the slush coming down isn’t exactly ideal for a snow football game.
These conditions certainly don’t help either of these struggling teams. With a combined 0-8 record on the season, one of these teams will come out with their first win of the season.
Neither team has really even come close to a victory this year. Akron has been blown out every game, losing by a combined margin of 124 points. Somehow, Bowling Green was able to top this, losing their games by 140 points.

It’s looking like the Falcons will expand that margin even further today.
Nearing the end of the third quarter, the Zips lead Bowling Green by a score of 24-3. Despite having more total yards of offense, the Falcons just haven’t been able to find the end zone. Akron running back Teon Dollard is carrying his team so far, collecting 114 yards rushing and one touchdown. That’s more yardage than all of his other teammates have combined.
Even in a lopsided matchup between two winless teams, there’s just something magical about watching a snow football game.
