BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Anthony Samuel ran for two touchdowns and Matt Schilz threw for another to help Bowling Green defeat Idaho 21-13 Saturday.

Bowling Green (1-1) opened a 7-0 lead behind a 4-yard run from Samuel but two field goals helped Idaho closed the gap to 7-6 at halftime.

Samuel scored again in the third quarter, this time from 29-yards out, extending the lead to 14-6.

Schilz's 15-yard touchdown pass to Je'Ron Stokes on Bowling Green's next possession gave the Falcons the lead for good.

The junior quarterback finished with 283 yards on 24-of-35 passing while Samuel, last year's Mid-American Conference freshman of the year, finished with 67 yards on 14 carries.

Bowling Green's Shaun Joplin led all receivers with 117 yards on seven catches.

Dominique Blackman paced Idaho (0-2) with 352 yards on 30-of-37 passing but his third quarter interception hurt the Vandals' chances.

The Falcons improved to 4-0 in season openers under head coach Dave Clawson.
