The game was played with four 10-minute running clock quarters and the defense forced three-and-outs or turnovers on seven of the 10 offensive series. BGSU's offense scored touchdowns on the other three possessions.
The offense . . .
Doege played just two series but engineered two touchdown drives. On the opening drive of the game, he was a perfect 4-for-4 for 51 yards, connecting with senior wide receiver Scott Miller twice. The latter was a 13-yard strike for a touchdown.
After the defense forced a three-and-out, Doege returned and again led the team to a touchdown. He found redshirt sophomore Bryson Denley streaking down the sideline for a 35-yard score.
Doege gave way to redshirt sophomore Grant Loy and freshman Bryce Veasley, but the defense stiffened, forcing three-and-outs or a turnover on six of the next seven possessions. Loy did lead the offense to an early third quarter touchdown drive in which he completed a long third-down pass to redshirt freshman Calvin Clater. Eventually, Loy scored on a quarterback sneak from one-yard out.
"Jarret's had a good spring," BGSU Head Coach Mike Jinks said. "He's really taken ownership of this football team and he's earned the trust of his coaches and his teammates. From an offensive standpoint, we are looking at the little things.
"Defensively, we've added some speed and that's showed up in the last couple of scrimmages. We've seen those guys make some open-field 1-on-1 tackles. We've increased our athleticism on defense and they are flying around and playing fast."
