This Saturday’s game between the Central Michigan Chippewas and the Toledo Rockets could bring major implications on how thing will shape up in the Mid-American Conference.
The Chippewas have already suffered a loss in the conference to Western Michigan who currently is leading the West Division.
A loss for Central Michigan could end up being just enough to put a MAC Title game out of reach.
Toledo on the other hand is still undefeated in conference play and is coming off a 42-35 win over Bowling Green.
Central Michigan Chippewas
The Chippewas are coming off of a win against Northern Illinois that needed three overtime periods before a winner could be determined. Central Michigan was able to come away with a 34-28 victory.
The Chips blocked a field goal by Christian Hagan on the first possession of triple overtime and on the very next play, quarterback Cooper Rush was able to complete a pass to Tyler Conklin for the touchdown.
The Chippewas missed on an opportunity to put the game away in overtime when Brian Eavey missed wide left from 33 yards out on a field goal with only 16 seconds remaining in the game.
He missed again on the left side of the uprights from 35 yards in the first overtime period.
Both teams were able to score touchdowns during the second overtime period before Central Michigan was finally able to put an end to the madness.
Rush finished the game with 254 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions on 19-15 attempts.
The Chippewas were able to rush for 230 yards as a team, the second highest total they have put up this season.
Toledo will be coming into this one looking to keep things rolling after getting the best of Bowling Green last week in a 42-35 victory.
With only 18 seconds left in the game, Kareem Hunt was able to plow into the end zone from three yards out to wrap up the game.
The Rockets had been up by 14 with 10:25 left in the fourth quarter, but Bowling Green was able to knot things up with 3:13 on the clock.
Toledo finished the Falcons off with a seven play drive that went 66 yards down the field for the score. Quarterback Logan Woodside was able to throw for 322 yards and four touchdowns, but did have an interception in the game.
The four touchdowns put his total at 24 on the season.
Running back Terry Swanson was able to run for 112 yards on 12 carries which included a 63 yard sprint to the end zone that put the Rockets up 35-21 in the fourth quarter.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Central Michigan +10
I think the Rockets will come out on top in this one, but I don’t think they will have enough to cover the ten points. This game has potential to get crazy as far as the score is concerned and I look for the total to go over 63.
