AMHERST, N.Y. -- Tyler Sheehan threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Barnes with 39 seconds left to give Bowling Green a 30-29 victory over Buffalo on Tuesday night.
The Falcons (4-5, 3-2 Mid-American Conference) rallied from a 13-point deficit as Sheehan threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. He was 22 for 40 for 313 yards and an interception.
Sheehan directed the winning 11-play, 75-yard drive by completing 6 of 10 passes down the stretch. The go-ahead touchdown came after a holding call erased a completion to Willie Geter, which had set up the Falcons at the Buffalo 6.
Geter finished with 22 yards rushing, including a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs in the first half.
Jeffvon Gill ran for 172 yards and a touchdown for Buffalo (3-6, 1-4 MAC), which rallied from a 20-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win last year's matchup in two overtimes. Gill, a true freshman, was pressed into his first extensive action after ankle injuries sidelined both Ike Nduka and Mario Henry.
