Central Michigan (0-3) vs. Maine (2-0) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Look … out.
Central Michigan desperately needs a win after getting roasted at Northern Illinois and getting blown out by Kansas on the way to an 0-3 start. Meanwhile, Maine is unbeaten with a win over WKU two weeks ago.
The Black Bears lead the FCS in run defense allowing just 27 yards in two games, helped by a devastating line and a pass rush with 12 sacks so far.
The offense is okay – there’s a good ground game to worry about – but it’s that D that CMU has to deal with.
The Chippewa secondary is a rock, but it needs to hold up against the run and it needs the passing game to be far, far more efficient.
CMU will get the win with the offense clicking just enough when it has to, and without the six turnovers it gave away against Kansas. The Main O will stall a bit too much late.
