The Falcons (1-5, 1-1 Mid-American Conference) missed an opportunity to extend their 30-29 lead when Jake Suder pushed a 40-yard field-goal attempt with 3:25 left.
Miami’s Billy Bahl completed two consecutive 27-yard passes — to Luke Mayock down the left sideline and to James Gardner up the middle — to move the RedHawks (2-4, 1-1) to the Bowling Green 1 with 1:59 left. But center Mitch Palmer’s snap on the next play bounced off Nate Trawick, who was in an up-back position, and it never reached Bahl. Harris scooped it up with the entire field open in front of him.
Miami drove to the 29 on its final possession before turning it over on downs with 26 seconds to go.
Andrew Clair ran for a career-high 121 yards for Bowling Green. Josh Cleveland added 117 yards rushing and a TD run.
