Eastern Michigan (2-3) vs. Western Michigan (3-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
After a horrible start, Western Michigan turned things around in a hurry with three straight wins, starting out the MAC season well with a 40-39 win over Miami University on the road.
It’s been the opposite for Eastern Michigan, following up the shocking win over Purdue with three straight losses including brutal close calls to Buffalo and Northern Illinois to go 0-2 in MAC plays.
Where was the turnaround for WMU? The offense has been terrific, the offensive line has been great, and the takeaways are coming. Meanwhile, the EMU run defense has had a rough run, the O line has struggled to keep defenses out of the backfield, and like last year, coming through clutch in tight battles has been an issue.
With the MAC’s best offense – starting with a passing game that’s getting time to work and making the most of the chances – Western Michigan will keep the pace going that EMU can’t keep up with.
This week, the Bronco ground game will take over in the second half to pull away.
