Goff on URugby
This ACRC Bowl Game was one of the most anticipated, because they were from two conferences that really didn't know each other.
Is AIC for real? To show they were, they had to face a program that has been the perennial MAC champs in Bowling Green.
Played at the Rugby Athletic Center in Charlotte, NC, this game was all over the place. Tries, comebacks, wild plays, and plenty of athleticism made it enormously entertaining for anyone watching, AIC fans, Bowling Green fans, or fans who had no dog in the fight.
Bowling Green fell behind big, and then came storming back, and were behind by a point with time almost up. AIC scored one more try to make it 46-40.
