For an example on Malik Hooker's range and ball skills, check out his first interception vs. Bowling Green. Hooker aligns on the opposite hash, opens his hips (with eyes on the QB) and gets to the bottom of the numbers to over-lap the deep route. Great finish too. High-point the ball and secure the interception. That's a big time play.
Fred Coppet rushed for 160 yards and two touchdowns, including a 52-yarder, and Bowling Green survived a wild finish to beat Buffalo 27-19 in both teams' season finale on Friday.
