Kent State (5-4) rolls into Central Michigan (5-4) in a game with big implications for both teams. Kent State is a fast striking team but has only won 1 game on the road this season. Central Michigan looked like a downtrodden team early but two punt returns sparked their victory over interstate rival Western Michigan.
The ground game for Central Michigan is the real deal behind RB Lew Nichols. That will balance out this offense and allow the passing game to open up for QB Daniel Richardson. On Kent State’s side they have fire power and will ultimately want to spread this Central Michigan defense out.
I am rolling with Central Michigan to hold their own at home and cover the spread in what should be a great game in Wednesday night’s MACtion.
