BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — Jarret Doege threw four touchdown passes and Bowling Green beat Eastern Kentucky 42-35 on Saturday afternoon.
Trailing 35-34 late in the fourth quarter, Deric Phouthavong made a diving, one-handed catch with one foot in-bounds for an 18-yard gain that led to Doege's 7-yard scoring throw to Quintin Morris three plays later.

As spring practice comes to a close this week, head coach Mike Jinks has seen enough out of Andrew Clair, Bryson Denley and CJ Lamar to feel comfortable in the backfield moving forward.
“I feel really, really good about our running back situation,” Jinks said after Tuesday’s practice.
