Nov 21, 2009 - 2:39 AM AKRON, Ohio(AP) -- Tyler Sheehan had a record-setting day, throwing for 338 yards and two touchdowns, to lead Bowling Green to a 36-20 victory over Akron on Friday night.

Trailing 10-9, Sheehan threw scoring passes of 4 and 15 yards to Freddie Barnes to put the Falcons (6-5, 5-2 Mid-American Conference) ahead for good with 4:28 left in the third quarter.

Sheehan, who was 23-for-32, became the Bowling Green leader in career pass completions with 914, passing Brian McClure (1982-85) with 900.

Barnes, who leads the nation in receptions per game (11.7), had 12 catches for 197 yards. Chris Bullock rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown.

The Zips (2-9, 1-6) pulled within 30-20 with 10:50 left when Patrick Nicely threw the second of his two touchdown passes, a 34-yarder to Andre Jones, but Keith Morgan returned the ensuing kickoff 41 yards for a TD.

Nicely finished 22-for-32 for 259 yards.
