FAM & FURIOUS: WEDNESDAY NIGHT MACTION

Kent State  Golden Flashes (2-7, 1-4 MAC) @ Western Michigan Broncos (5-4, 3-2 MAC) — WMU -20.5, O/U 47.5 — 7 PM EST

That’s a big over at 20.5, but this is a terrible Kent State team. They average 10 points per game, worst in FBS, and versus the Broncos at home (where they limited better Ball State and Akron offenses to 3 points and 13 points, respectively), we see no scoring tonight. The Bronco offense will also run roughshod over the Golden Flashes (221.4 yards allowed per game), thanks to Jarvion Franklin behind a very good offensive line. 40-6 Broncos roll.

 

 

Toledo Rockets (8-1, 5-0 MAC) @ Ohio Bobcats (7-2, 4-1 MAC) — Toledo -4, O/U 62.5 — 7 PM EST

The two best teams in the MAC square off in an early peak at the conference title game. Toledo touts one of the nation’s best passing attacks, and score in bunches. That said, the Bobcats run the ball all over teams, and score more. While the Bobcats have a semblance of a defensive front thanks to Quentin Poling, Cleon Aloese and others, they lack the pass defense needed to stop Toledo completely. A shootout breaks out in Ohio, 50-47 Rockets.

 

 

Eastern Michigan Eagles (3-6, 1-4 MAC) @ Central Michigan Chippewas (5-4, 3-2 MAC) — EMU – 2, O/U 50.5 — 8 PM EST

Another intrastate MAC rivalry game, granted with less fanfare than the former. That said, both teams are hard-nosed and well-coached. We like the Chips to sweep the state rivalries, and EMU again fall in a close game (four of last five). Just when the arrow is pointed up, you realize it’s a Chippewa arrow pointed at an eagle. 24-20 CMU.
