With incoming head man Ron Caragher looking on, the San Jose State defensive line batted down a Matt Schilz fourth down pass to break the hearts of Bowling Green fans and win the Military Bowl, 29-20.

The Spartans’ defensive line was active throughout the game, forcing a big Schilz fumble at one point and generally harassing the Falcons’ experienced signal-caller throughout the late afternoon.

Schilz absolutely gave it his all from start to finish, leading his underdog Bowling Green bunch to a 20-19 lead early in the fourth quarter after trailing throughout the football game. However, his final numbers, having completed 16-of-35 pass attempts for 159 yards and no scores, paled in comparison to his SJSU counterpart, junior David Fales.

Easily the most hyped player on the field, Fales had broken the 300-yard passing barrier in four of his team’s five previous outings. With a chance to run the Spartans’ record to an excellent 11-2 mark, the 6-foot-3, 220-pounder continued his impressive ways, and his 300-yard passing streak.

Fales finished the ballgame 33-of-43 for 395 yards, two scores and zero interceptions.

As great as he was, it was a late, questionable video review and running back De’Leon Eskridge, who got the call late in the game, that provided the final margin of victory. On a big third down, Fales lofted a pass to fullback Ina Liaina. Liaina appeared to have fumbled near the three-yard line, but the play was upheld upon video review. Eskridge then punched it in from only one yard out on second down for the insurance touchdown. Eskridge only finished out the afternoon with only 32 yards on 13 carries as the Spartans really struggled running the football.

In the end, it did not matter, not with a hyper-active defensive line and David Fales’ right arm.
