2017 Central Michigan Chippewas Football Schedule & Analysis
Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 Central Michigan Chippewas football schedule
2017 Central Michigan Chippewas Best Case Scenario
CMU starts out the season with an easy win over Rhode Island, and follows it up with a win at Kansas to set the tone for a big first half of the season. After a shootout loss at Syracuse, it starts out the MAC season with a win over Miami University, and makes a huge statement with a win at Ohio a few weeks later.
The home win over Toledo puts the Chippewas in the driver’s seat for the West, and it cements their place with a big win over Western Michigan. There are a few MAC losses along the way – like at Ball State, or against Northern Illinois – but it won’t matter with enough key wins to take the division.
2017 Central Michigan Chippewas Worst Case Scenario
Losses at Kansas, Syracuse and Boston College are bad enough, but a loss at Ohio puts the pressure on for the second half of the season. With a loss to Toledo, and a defeat at Western Michigan, there’s no more margin for error to get to six wins and a bowl game. The home loss to Northern Illinois at the end of the regular season makes it a losing campaign.
