Bowling Green RB Travis Greene rushed for 54 yards on 14 carries in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Greene did manage to slug his way to 54 yards, but he wasn't exactly slicing through the defense. The 5-foot-10, 189-pound runner averaged 3.9 YPC with a long run of 11 yards. There's not much you can read into the performance either way, but during the regular season, he rushed for a stellar 1,299 yards and 15 touchdowns. For this spring's draft, CBS Sports currently projects him as a seventh-round selection or an undrafted free agent.

Bowling Green redshirt senior C/G Alex Huettel will play in the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-4, 309-pound Huettel was inserted into the starting lineup way back in 2012 and never left it. He has experience at both center and guard and has also played in both traditional and fast-paced offensive schemes. Huettel's versatility gives him a chance to "stick as a reserve lineman as an NFL rookie despite likely being a late-round selection," NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter wrote over the summer.

Bowling Green redshirt junior QB Matt Johnson accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Johnson's one of the bigger names to accept an NFLPA invite. The 6-foot, 215-pound redshirt junior was one of the most prolific passers in all of the FBS land this past season, throwing for 4,946 yards (67.3% completions) while grooving his way to a 46/8 TD/INT ratio. The Falcons fells to Georgia Southern in their GoDaddy Bowl showdown just before Christmas, but still finished out with a nice 10-4 record.

Bowling Green greyshirt sophomore Roger Lewis declared for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris was on this scoop earlier on Monday. It's official now. As is the norm these days, Lewis declared for the draft via Twitter. Said the 6-foot, 199-pound greyshirt sophomore, "I'd like to thank BGSU for giving me the opportunity, you will forever be in my heart." He went on to thank his coaches, fellow players and family. This past season, he caught 85 passes for 1,544 yards and 16 touchdowns. The 22-year-old will have to address personal issues in pre-draft interviews, but on the field, he's a speedy catch-magnet with high upside.

Bowling Green greyshirt sophomore Roger Lewis will likely declare for the 2016 NFL Draft, according to Josh Norris.

Lewis produced an outstanding season at Bowling Green, totaling 85 catches for 1,544 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2015 alone. He is one of the better vertical receivers in the country, and those skills were used correctly in Bowling Green's scheme. Lewis recently turned 22 due to issues out of high school involving allegations and a fabricated deposition. Those will certainly be questioned and asked about during the draft process.

Bowling Green greyshirt sophomore WR Roger Lewis caught three passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 58-27 loss to Georgia Southern in the GoDaddy Bowl.

Several days ago, CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler called attention to Lewis' occasional issues with completing catches. It came to pass on Wednesday, as Lewis dropped at least one would-be touchdown as Bowling Green's offense sputtered and died in the second half. Like an old truck on a snowy road. That aside, the 6-foot, 199-pound greyshirt finishes the 2015 campaign having caught 85 passes for 1,544 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Bowling Green redshirt junior QB Matt Johnson completed 15-of-34 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns in Wednesday's 58-27 loss to Georgia Southern in the GoDaddy Bowl.

Johnson notched a trio of touchdown passes in the first half as Bowling Green took a late 27-23 lead into the locker room. He seemed poise for an enormous evening, but then, nothing. The Falcons' high-flying offense wouldn't score a single point in the second half. Despite the inexplicable second-half goose egg on the scoreboard, the 6-foot, 215-pound Johnson's done immaculate work on the whole this season, throwing for 4,946 yards (67.3% completions) with a 46/8 TD/INT ratio.

Per CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler, Bowling Green greyshirt sophomore WR Roger Lewis "runs a limited route tree and needs to be more reliable finishing catches."

Lewis will be tangoing with Georgia Southern in the GoDaddy Bowl on December 23. He's already reportedly spoken with agents and advisors in regards to potentially entering the 2016 NFL Draft. The 6-foot, 199-pound greyshirt (he went to prep school for a year after finishing high school) currently sits on a 82-1476-15 receiving line. While draft analyst Brugler believes Lewis still has work to do on his routes, he also wrote that the wideout is "a good-sized athlete who can create with the ball." By the by, Lewis' 1,476 receiving yards lead the FBS.

Bowling Green greyshirt sophomore WR Roger Lewis "has been speaking with agents and also has advisers to help him make [a draft] decision," reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Lewis is eligible for the draft because he spent a year in prep school after high school. The 6-foot, 199-pounder has 82 catches for 1,476 yards and 15 touchdowns. He's fast, sure handed and technically sound. The only question is if he's matured enough to leave a troubled past behind him. Pauline added this interesting note regarding Lewis and a star conference mate: "Corey Davis of Western Michigan is also [speaking with agents]. Both prospects rank as middle round selections but are very much undecided to this point, though it seems Lewis is the likely one to enter the draft."

Bowling Green announced Texas Tech associate head coach/running backs coach Mike Jinks as head coach.

It's an interesting gamble for the MAC champs, who replace rising star Dino Babers with the little-known Jinks, who has only three years of college experience. Prior to that, Jinks coached Texas high school football. While we don't know what to expect from Jinks, BGU certainly has an outstanding track record of picking head coaches. "No surprise Jinks would ace his job interview," tweeted ESPN's Max Olson. "Genuinely good man and players love him."

Bowling Green (10-3) will play Georgia Southern (8-4) in the GoDaddy Bowl on December 23.

Bowling Green's been installed as an early seven-point favorite for their December 23 showdown with Georgia Southern. The game's scheduled to kick at 8:00 PM EST. There's not going to be a bigger clash of offensive styles than this one. Bowling Green ranks third nationally in terms of passing yards behind QB Matt Johnson (376.08 on average). And Georgia Southern? Dead last in the nation with just 61.83 on average. That's easily explainable, as the Eagles run a triple-option attack that averages a whopping 355.58 yards on the ground. So essentially, you'll be watching two completely different games depending on who has the ball.

Bowling Green greyshirt sophomore WR Roger Lewis caught six passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 34-14 win over Northern Illinois in the MAC title game.

45 of Lewis' 75 receiving yards came courtesy of a scoring strike in the third quarter that saw him catch the ball in stride from QB Matt Johnson on a streak down the right sideline before flashing his speed to cruise to glory. MAC title in hand, the 6-foot, 199-pound greyshirt sophomore's caught 82 passes for 1,476 yards and 15 touchdowns. Much of that yardage was accumulated in an eight-game stretch that saw Lewis surpass 100 yards receiving seven times and 200 yards receiving thrice. He's been held under the century mark in each of his last four games, but the slow finish doesn't diminish a fantastic 2015 campaign by the newly crowned MAC champ.

Bowling Green redshirt junior QB Matt Johnson completed 25-of-37 passes for 235 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 34-14 MAC Championship win over NIU.

Johnson hit Derek Lee for a short touchdown midway through the second quarter. He would later complete a 45-yard scoring pass to Roger Lewis on a perfectly timed piece of play-action. On the negative side, Johnson did throw a pair of interceptions. It's just the second time all season that he's been picked off more than once. Overall, the 6-foot, 215-pound redshirt junior's thrown for an even 4,700 yards with a laughably sweet 43/8 TD/INT ratio.

Bowling Green redshirt senior RB Travis Greene rushed for 183 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 29 carries in Friday's 34-14 win over NIU to secure the MAC title.

Greene scored his first touchdown on a beautiful 25-yard run with just over a minute remaining in the first half. The 5-foot-10, 189-pound redshirt senior took the handoff, raced up the middle, then used a graceful juke to elude three would-be tacklers on his way to the end zone. His second scoring run was of the easier, one-yard species. With the MAC title secured, Greene and friends now await their bowl assignment. Through 13 contests completed, he's rushed for 1,219 yards and 14 touchdowns.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline argues that Bowling Green greyshirt sophomore WR Roger Lewis is "one of the best receiver prospects no one pays attention to."

Agreed. As a staff, Bowling Green has become a favorite of your humble correspondents working this particular section of the Rotoworld kingdom. Dino Babers constructed this high-wire circus and Lewis is his most skilled performer. In only his second season of eligibility -- and with two games left to play in 2015 -- Lewis has already accrued a mind-numbing 149 receptions for 2,494 yards (16.7 average) and 21 scores. "He has the speed to stretch defenses vertically and the receiving skills to make the underneath receptions with regularity," Pauline wrote. "The true sophomore is draft eligible as he spent a year in prep school after high school graduation and offers enormous potential but also a checkered past which he must answer for." We advise you: Don't overlook Lewis. If he keeps his head screwed on straight, he could be a draft steal.
