Western Michigan S Rontavious Adams was the unsung hero of the Popeye's Bahamas Bowl. Adams had a key fourth quarter interception that helped the Broncos secure their first-ever bowl win and finished with seven tackles, which tied for second on the squad.

Western Michigan's Jamauri Bogan has provided a huge spark for the Broncos in the Popeye's Bahamas Bowl. He has nine carries for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Bogan has touchdown runs of 62 yards and 46 yards, both on short yardage plays which saw him break past the line of scrimmage and outrace Middle Tennessee's defense to the end zone.

It's seemed like two different games during the first half at the Popeye's Bahamas Bowl. Middle Tennessee State and Western Michigan combined for 34 points and 475 yards in the first quarter. In the second quarter the two teams combined for zero points and 147 total yards. With the score tied at 17 at halftime, it should be interesting to see if the offensive fireworks return in the second half.


Scoreless second quarter in Bahamas

After both teams scored 17 points in the first quarter, the second quarter of the Bahamas Bowl was scoreless, thanks in large part to turnovers like this fumble.

Did this pick seal Western Michigan's fate?

The Broncos are 7-0 when Zach Terrell doesn't throw an interception and 0-5 when he does. This pick gave Middle Tennessee great field position, but the Blue Raiders couldn't capitalize.
