We have reached week three of the college football season and there are a few games that are conference games. That is the case in this one when the Central Michigan Chippewas make the trip to Huskie Stadium to take on the Northern Illinois Huskies in a MAC showdown.
The Chippewas have won the last four games played between the two teams.
Central Michigan Chippewas
The Central Michigan Chippewas haven’t had the start of the season they were hoping for and come into this game with an 0-2 record.
They opened up the season agaisnt Kentucky and it wasn’t much of a surprise that they lost. The next game was against the Kansas Jayhawks one of the worst teams in the Power Five and they were actually three point favorites going into the game.
The defense struggled and the offense couldn’t get anything going and that led to a 31-7 defeat. The Chippewas are led at quarterback by Tony Poljan and he has really struggled this year.
He has thrown for 314 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions. If the Chippewas want any chance in this game he needs to take better care of the ball.
He has a turnover or two early, the team is going to have a really hard time coming out ahead.
Northern Illinois Huskies
On the other side of this matchup is the Northern Illinois Huskies who have played a tough schedule so far this year and come into this game having lost both games.
The biggest issue for this team has been the way the offense has played. Against Iowa they only scored seven points and against Utah they were only able to score six.
Huskies quarterback Marcus Childers has also struggled to throw for only 216 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
The defense has also had their issues but they were facing teams that they were overmatched by so it really doesn’t seem like much of a surprise.
