Western Michigan tops Middle Tennessee 45-31 in Bahamas Bowl

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) Considering that Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck has made "Row the Boat" a team motto, it's only fitting the Broncos had to reach the Bahamas to finally win a bowl game.

Jamauri Bogan ran for 215 yards and four touchdowns, powering Western Michigan past Middle Tennessee 45-31 on Thursday in the Bahamas Bowl for its first bowl victory. The Broncos had lost their previous six bowl games.

"This was what `Row the Boat' was all about," Fleck said. "This is why it was invented. This is what it was for. There were all types of adversity in this football game that our kids could have given up, could have quit, could have folded. Two years ago, we probably would have. Last year, we'd probably have done it some of the time. This year? No way."
