We have reached week nine of the college football season and by this point most teams will be playing conference games in this week.
In this game it’s a MAC showdown at Huskie Stadium.
The Eastern Michigan Eagles make the trip to Dekalb, Illinois to take on the Northern Illinois Huskies. The Huskies have won the last nine games played between the two teams.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eastern Michigan Eagles come into this game with a 2-5 record, but they aren’t as bad as that record says, and they easily could be 5-2 if they could just close out games.
After winning the first two games of the season they come into this one having lost five in a row, but the biggest margin was only seven points.
Two games ago they lost to Army by only one point, and in the last game to Western Michigan by only three. The offense just hasn’t made big plays down the stretch of games, and that has cut their chances to win the games.
The strength of this team is on the defensive side of the ball. They come into this game only giving up 19.9 points and 351 yards per game.
The big issue though is that the offense is only scoring 19-9 points per game. They haven’t been able to establish much of a run game averaging less than 95 yards per game.
To win this game they are going to need to get a good performance out of the offense. They can play as well as they want on defense, but if the offense doesn’t step up, it’s going to turn into another loss in this game.
Northern Illinois Huskies
After struggles last year Northern Illinois hoped this would be a bounce back year for them, and that has been exactly what has happened.
They come into this game with a 5-2 record, and even in the games they lost they were able to cover the spread. For the Huskies the strength is also on the defensive side of the ball.
They come into this game only giving up 16.7 points and 293.4 yards per game. They have done a good job of slowing down opposing teams pass game, and that has led to the success.
To win this game it’s a pretty simple idea on paper. They need to find a way to attack a Eastern Michigan defense that is very strong.
They need to try and use a balanced attack and keep the Eagles on their heals onto what will be coming next.
