This Tuesday matchup will see the Eastern Michigan Eagles take on the Northern Illinois Huskies. Both of these teams play in the MAC West division, so they are very familiar with each other.
The Huskies have beaten the Eagles in the last 10 meetings in a row, so they will be looking for another dominating performance.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eagles had essentially a bye week in their last game, as they beat Akron, otherwise known as the worst team in college football, 42-14. This moves their record to an even .500 and they can become bowl eligible with a win over the Huskies.
This Eagles offense is led by their passing attack. They are ranked 35th in the country in passing the ball, averaging 273.5 yards per game. This makes up for a poor rushing attacking, one that averages 116.1 yards per game and ranks 119th.
Now as for their scoring, they average about 27.8 points per game. This is not the worst, but it also is not great. Scoring 42 points against the Zips was their best offensive performance, but in reality, everyone runs up the score on Akron without any issue.
Looking at their defense, they tend to struggle in most games. They are allowing 435.2 total yards per game, which ranks 103rd in the country. They gave up not one but two touchdowns to Akron on big plays. The game was already out of hand by then but still allowing Akron to score is not what you want.
In terms of rankings, they are worse at defending the run an allow 193.8 yards per game. This comes in at 100th in the country. The key to success for the Eagles will be to score fast and take the crowd out of it.
Northern Illinois Huskies
The Huskies jumped out to a 28-7 lead over Toledo last week, but allowed the Rockets to come back an ended up winning the game 31-28. This team knows that one more loss will ruin their bowl eligibility, so they should be fired up to play this game.
The Huskies offense is going to need to do a better job at finishing games, because they pretty much collapsed against Toledo. They did make up for it with a game winning drive, but I expect a full four quarter game out of them this time around.
Northern Illinois will likely rely on their passing game because the run game has not exactly been there this season. They rank 57th in passing the ball, averaging 241.9 yards per game. This is compared to the run game that averages 130.1 yards and ranks 109th.
The defense has been more of the back bone for this team if you want to call it that. They are allowing 27.9 points per game. They are a top 40 team in defending the pass, so that is the key to slowing down a solid Eastern Michigan passing attack.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick
North Illinois has dominated this team and I think they can make it another year where they win against the Eagles. Especially being at home, I like the Huskies to get their 5th win.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Eastern Michigan Eagles +4.5
These two teams are pretty evenly matched and I think laying 4.5 points with the Huskies is a little too many considering this a game that could come down to a field goal. Having said that, I will take the points with the Eagles to cover.
