Bowling Green Falcons wordmark.svg

The Bowling Green Falcons football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Bowling Green Falcons football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Falcons represent Bowling Green State University in the NCAA's Mid-American Conference.

Although Bowling Green began competing in intercollegiate football in 1919,[1] the school's official record book generally does not have entries before the 1950s, as records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since the 1950s, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
  • The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002.[2] The Falcons have played in eight bowl games since this decision, giving many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2018 season.
