The Broncos and Huskies play in the biggest game thus far for either team Wednesday night.
Both teams currently sit at 5-1 in the conference and game eliminate the other as there are just 2 games left with the tiebreaker being owned by the winner.
Both the Huskies and Broncos offer balanced styled offenses that have many similar qualities that will be displayed on Wednesday night.
Western Michigan was in the drivers seat in terms of the MAC West, but a slip up to BG last week has brought them back to the pack and now they find themselves in a 3 way tie for 1st place.
Even with the slip up, the Broncos control their own destiny within the MAC West. Western will have to defeat both Northern Illinois this week and Toledo next week on the road.
It’s been a bit more pass heavy in terms of the Broncos successful offense, but they do use the run game early and often to open up passing lanes within the secondary. Overall, the Broncos average 278.0 passing and 207.9 on the ground.
The pass game is led by QB Zach Terrell who has 2651 yards in total with 23 touchdowns to just 7 interceptions on the season.
Thus far, the Broncos are just 2-2 SU on the road, but are 3-1 ATS. They’ll need to improve on their road defense that allows 30.8 points against as both of their final games are on the road.
The Huskies have really hit another level since their opening conference loss to Central Michigan back on their 5th game of the season.
After starting the season 2-0, NIU dropped 2 straight to #1 Ohio State and Boston College before entering conference play.
Northern Illinois had one of their most sloppiest performances of the season in a 29-19 loss and it looked like NIU was in store for a long fall.
However, things really started to click for them in their 59-41 win over Ball State and they really took off.
Since that loss to CMU, the Huskies have rattled off 5 straight wins, including a giant win at Toledo which has really set them up.
A win here this week over WMU will put them in a position where they just need to beat OU next week to wrap up the MAC West.
NIU has used their home play to propel themselves into first in the MAC West. They are currently 4-0 SU and 2-1-1 ATS. Offensively, they are scoring 50+ points per home contest.
The Huskies are almost as balanced as you can get offensively as they are rushing for 219.8 yards per game and passing for 231.5.
