What’s Going To Happen
The West might out of the picture for both teams, but the winner might be on the path to bowl eligibility.
Eastern Michigan suffered close loss after close loss in six straight defeats, and then it got its groove on with a 56-14 win over Ball State.
Beat Central Michigan, and then it has to get by mediocre Miami University and Bowling Green teams to get to six wins.
Central Michigan pulled off a stunner in the lousy weather conditions at Western Michigan – coming back for a 35-28 win – and now it just needs one more win to get to a bowl game. Lose this, and there’s still the failsafe of Kent State to follow before dealing with Northern Illinois.
But pulling off the win and owning the directional Michigan school title would be great, too.
Eastern Michigan doesn’t have much of a ground game, but the defensive front is aggressive and the secondary has been terrific. It’s a decent, sound team that gets good play from the O line.
But the Eagles have to deal with a good CMU pass defense that leads the MAC, and can pass protect offensively.
It’s going to be a tight, good battle with the Chippewas coming through with a late score to – sorry, EMU – hand the Eagles yet another heartbreaking close loss.
