KENT, Ohio (AP) -- Bowling Green's Willie Geter ran for 203 yards and scored the game's first touchdown as the Falcons beat Kent State 31-20 Saturday in a game in which they never trailed.

Tyler Sheehan threw for two second-half touchdowns -- a 31-yarder to Anthony Turner and a 24-yarder to Corey Partridge -- to give Bowling Green (4-3, 2-1 MAC) a 28-13 fourth quarter lead.

Kent State (3-5, 1-3) narrowed it to 28-20 with 5:35 left on a 32-yard pass from quarterback Julian Edelman to Rashad Tukes, but the Falcons' Sinisa Vrvilo kicked a 49-yard field goal on the next possession, sealing the win.

Eugene Jarvis rushed for 171 yards on 33 attempts, while Edelman added 110 yards on 17 carries for the Golden Flashes.

Geter had runs of 50 yards and 44 yards and also caught four passes for 51 yards. Partridge had four receptions for 61 yards.
