Eastern Michigan heads down to Lexington, Kentucky in what might be a pretty low-key interesting ball game.
If you want offense, then this might not be the most entertaining game, but if you like defense this should be pretty good.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eastern Michigan Eagles are coming off a tough double overtime loss at home against the Ohio Bobcats.
It was a real tough conference loss, but they can still bounce back to win the West division in the MAC and they can bounce back this week against SEC opponent Kentucky Wildcats.
This is a pretty solid Eastern Michigan team as they rank near the top in total defensive yards per game. This includes a game against both Rutgers and Ohio.
Kentucky will prove to be a tougher match for them, but this defense is capable of keeping the Wildcats at bay.
Watch out for senior quarterback Brogan Roback who has been solid on the offensive side of the ball for the Eagles.
The Kentucky Wildcats are also coming off a tough, emotional loss at home against a conference opponent in the Florida Gators.
However, you can expect a bit of a let down for Kentucky. The Eastern Michigan Eagles don’t exactly get the blood boiling for the Wildcats and they might feel a bit of a hangover in the first half.
However, like Eastern Michigan, I look for Kentucky to dominate on the defensive side of the ball.
Especially, on the ground as the Wildcats are the ninth best team in rush defense and Eastern Michigan isn’t exactly the best rushing team in the nation.
Kentucky is offensively challenged and you can’t just blame it on their power-5 schedule. Kentucky struggled to gain yards and points on Southern Miss.
The same could be said against Eastern Kentucky as they only put up 27 points against them, as well.

I like a couple of bets in this one. I like the under and I like Eastern Michigan to cover. What I like best is probably the under. I don’t see Kentucky putting up that many I definitely don’t see Eastern Michigan putting up a ton of points.
