TranscriptSouthern Meets Bowling Green

Bowling Green University puts
20-game non-conference winning streak on the line tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 p.m. in McAndrew Stadium against Southern's set-minded Salukis.
The Bowling Green Falcons ended the game with a 7-1 record wining by a narrow 7-6 margin to anti of Ohio three weeks ago, enters the game with a 7-2 record and hopes the Falcons leave Carbondale with a 7-2 record.
A win over the high-flying Falcons might mean a bowl berth for SIU and the Salukis want a howl bid badly.
For the first time in SRi's football histery, the Salukis will be meeting a team with major-college status. Bowling Green was voted major-college earlier this year by the Football Writers As-. sociation of America.
When the Saluki players tangle with the Falcons they will be meeting one of the nation's top- ranked defensive teams. Earlier this fall Bowling Green's highly- touted defense dropped West Texas State from sixth to 10th in total offense.
Bowling Green has held opponents to 781 net yards in eight games for a 97.6 rushing average per game.
SIU coach Carmen Piccone is not as afraid of the Falcon defense as he is the BeeGee offense. The Falcon offense has picked up 1901 yards jn eight games for a game average of 237.6.
Leading the Falcon offense are halfbacks Russ Hepner and Don Lisbon. Hepner has carried 109 times for 484 yards and a 4.4 per carry average. Lisbon is average
