What’s Going To Happen
In a weird quirk, the flooding in Waldo Stadium means a Sunday college football game.
Western Michigan hasn’t been boring, but it hasn’t played the same game twice.
From battling with USC to start the season, to slugging it out against Michigan State, to a seven-overtime 71-68 win over Buffalo last week, the Broncos have managed to do it all.
But above all of that, it’s 2-0 in MAC play, and with a dangerous date at Eastern Michigan up next, and road games at Northern Illinois and Toledo late, there can’t be a slip.
Akron has also been interesting, and it’s also 2-0 in the MAC with easy wins over Bowling Green and Ball State. But with a road game at Toledo to follow, lose to WMU, and the season will quickly have issues.
The Broncos are running fine and the passing game was able to step up against Buffalo last week, and the defense is far better than it showed in Amherst.
The Akron offensive line isn’t generating anything for the running game and the offense isn’t cranking up big yards. If the Broncos get up early, the Zips don’t have the explosion to mount any sort of a quick comeback – even if Buffalo was able to do it last week.
