Clarksville, TN – On the surface it seems Devin Stark’s abilities at wide receiver are more appreciated on the national and regional levels than they are within his own conference.
Stark recently was named preseason second-team All-American by the FCS Senior Bowl. Earlier this summer, Stark was named to the College Football Performance Watch List at wide receiver as well. However, Stark’s name was not on either the 2011 All-Ohio Valley Conference team or the league’s 2012 preseason team.

Bowling Green, OH – After playing 51 seasons in Anderson Arena, Bowling Green now is in spanking brand new facility. When the Governors play the Falcons, 6:00pm, it will be only the second regular-season game played at the Stroh Center.

However, with former Syracuse and NBA standout Louis Orr leading the program, the Falcons have reason for optimism. They return honorable mention All-Mid American Conference performers, 6-7 forwards A’ustin Calhoun (12.5 ppg) and Scott Thomas (6.7 rpg) from last season’s team.
