BOWLING GREEN – The Bowling Green State University football team set a school record in Saturday’s loss at Northwestern.
The record was for most different players catching a pass in a single game as 12 different Falcons caught at least one pass in the contest.
Freshman Jared Wyatt caught the first four passes of his career in the contest to tie senior Teo Redding and junior Scotty Miller for the team lead in that category, while Datrin Guyton and true freshman Matt Wilcox added three receptions each.
Running back Matt Domer caught the first two passes of his career and Josh Cleveland also had two catches. Pete Norris also had his first career catch, while Deric Phouthavong, Janarvis Pough, Quintin Morris, and Terence Stephens each caught a pass against the Wildcats.
For the sake of comparison, a total of 13 different Bowling Green players caught at least one pass in last season’s 12 games, and 15 Falcons had a catch in 2015.
