Bowling Green head football coach Scott Loeffler will not travel with the team to Saturday’s game at Mississippi State due to a personal health issue, the school announced Friday.
Associate head coach and linebackers coach Steve Morrison will serve as head coach in Loeffler’s absence. Running backs coach Brian White usually works in the booth on game days with Morrison on the field as the game manager.
The Falcons (1-2) face the Bulldogs (2-1) at noon on the SEC Network and are coming off an overtime win at home against Marshall last week.
Loeffler is expected to return to the sidelines on Oct. 1 at Akron.
