Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 Western Michigan Broncos football schedule
2017 Western Michigan Broncos Best Case Scenario
The Broncos aren’t embarrassed by USC in the opener, and then they come up with the shocker. Last year they got past Northwestern and Illinois, and this year they slip past a still-struggling Michigan State. They follow it up on a roll, beating Idaho, Wagner and Ball State at home to get everything going.
There’s no problem getting through October before getting some time off. Wins over Central Michigan and Kent State set everything up for the finishing kick, beating Northern Illinois for a 10-1 record before going to Toledo. A win over the Rockets send WMU back to the MAC title game.
2017 Western Michigan Broncos Worst Case Scenario
Different team, different year – WMU gets blown away by USC and Michigan State to start things off. Realistically, there’s no problem with Idaho or Wagner, but there’s a struggle against Ball State before having problems with Buffalo on the road. They lose to Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan to ruin MAC title hopes, but they get bowl eligible with a win over Kent State – before losing to Northern Illinois and Toledo on the road.
