Toledo vs Eastern Michigan Game Preview
Why Toledo Will Win
How fast can the Rockets get past the setback loss to Buffalo?
The offense was well balanced, the defense wasn’t awful, and … six turnovers. That’s how Toledo lost 34-27, and it’s not going to do that again.
Eastern Michigan is awful at coming up with third down stops, the offensive front is bad in pass protection, and the team overall isn’t all that hot in turnover margin.
As long as the Rockets limit the mistakes, the offense should be able to put points to the end of a slew of good drives.
Why Eastern Michigan Will Win
Eastern Michigan is a strange team that finds ways to win.
It hasn’t played all that great, and it completely clunked at home against Northern Illinois two weeks ago when it had a chance to shine, but it has three wins in the last four games.
The O might not be dangerous, but it comes up with third down conversions better than anyone in the MAC, the running game occasionally takes over in key spots, and there’s almost never a wasted opportunity – the team is great in the red zone.
What’s Going To Happen
Toledo QB Dequan Finn might be out after banging up his shoulder. Can the rest of the Rockets pick up the slack? Yes, but it’s going to be a battle to get it done.
Pick against Eastern Michigan at your own peril, but there are a few bumps and bruises in the backfield, the offense doesn’t have enough pop, and Toledo has the parts to be just fine as long as there aren’t a slew of giveaways.
The Rockets are 1-3 on the road, but they’ll get enough offensive balance to get out of this alive.
