In Game

During the game, you will be able to check out the inside of Doyt Perry Stadium, one of the oldest remaining football stadiums in the MAC. There are a variety of new and historical elements that make these games a memorable experience. One of the best parts of taking in a Bowling Green game is the band. The band is very active throughout the game, playing a blast or clip from a song after almost every play. The input from the band helps to drive home the small school atmosphere and keeps the fans amped up and involved in the game.

The traditional and favorite chant during the game from the Bowling Green fans is the Falcon Screech. Anytime the Falcons pick up a first down the public address announcer calls out FOR ANOTHER FALCONS FIRST DOWN, followed by a loud Falcons screech that shakes the opponents.

The loudest section in Doyt Perry Stadium is the student section located in the northwest corner. Just as you would expect from a small school, the students pack the section and dawn the school’s colors, paint faces, dye hair, and wave signs all game long. The band also sits on the north end of the stadium as well creating a boom from the north end of the field. If you’re looking to sit in the loudest section of the stadium, then secure a spot near the north end where you’ll be a part of one of the most uproarious crowds in the MAC.
You’ll have an outstanding time taking in a game at Doyt Perry Stadium where the rambunctious fans create a delightful small school football experience.

Fight Songs

  1. Forward Falcons

    The official fight song for Bowling Green and is usually played after every score and at various times throughout the game.

    Forward Falcons, Forward Falcons, Fight for victory.  Show our spirit,
    make them fear it, Fight for dear Bee Gee.
    Forward Falcons,
    Forward Falcons, Make the contest keen.
    Hold up the fame of our mighty name,
    and win for Bowling Green

  2. Ay Ziggy Zoomba

    Ay Ziggy Zoomba is Bowling Green’s unofficial fight song. Gilbert Fox, an Air Force bombardier in World War II, brought a loose translation of a Zulu war chant back with him, and since its introduction in 1946 to a campus spirit assembly, it has kept its place in BGSU history. The Falcon football team traditionally sings “Ay Ziggy Zoomba” after each victory making it a big part of the Bowling Green game day experience.
