The Little Caesar’s Bowl has been an entertaining game so far and a lot of that has to do with some great plays we’ve seen out of both sides all night long. Defensively it hasn’t been that sound of a game for either Pittsburgh or Bowling Green but that doesn’t mean that the defense hasn’t showed up at all on Thursday night.
One specific play saw the Panthers defense stuff the Falcons reverse play before the trickery could even get underway. The Panthers blasted right through the line of scrimmage to bust up the reverse before the ball was handed off a second time.
The defense hasn’t been stellar for Pittsburgh but it has been present enough to hold down a slim lead for a majority of the game. The Panthers have been in a brutal fight with Bowling Green though which just means fans at home have been gifted with yet another great non-BCS bowl game.
