The MAC East meets the MAC West on Saturday as the Kent State Golden Flashes head into Central Michigan to take on the Chippewas.
Central Michigan looks to hang around in the MAC West, while the Golden Flashes season has completely come off the rails.
Kent State Golden Flashes
The Golden Flashes have had their chances to hang around in the MAC, but losses in 3 of their last 4 have them completely out of the MAC race and now need a win out to find themselves bowl eligible.
Kent State had the lead against Akron with just 2 minutes to go, but Akron found the endzone with under a minute left to steal the game. After a win over Buffalo, Miami OH did the same thing to Kent with a late touchdown to steal another win from the Golden Flashes.
Then last week at home, the Bobcats defense completely had the Kent offense flustered, as they couldn’t get anything going in a 14-10 narrow loss.
Scoring has been the biggest issue for this Kent State team, as they are averaging just 21.4 points per game.
QB Nick Holley will have to have himself a big game here, as he leads the Golden Flashes in passing and rushing.
Central Michigan Chippewas
The Chippewas have had an impressive season thus far, but 2 losses to MAC West rivals have them in a horrible position in terms of the title game.
Losses to Western Michigan and now Toledo after last week have them at 2-2 in the conference and behind in every tie breaker.
At this point, grabbing a win here and securing bowl eligibility is the first priority for the Chipps.
When it comes to their losses in the MAC, the defense has been the biggest letdown. Central Michigan allowed 41 points to Western Michigan and after holding Toledo to just 3 first half points last week, the Rockets racked up 4 touchdowns in the 2nd half.
Central Michigan will certainly have a chance to get their confidence and momentum back on the defensive side of the ball this week, as they go up against one of the worst offenses in the nation.
Expect them to put a lot of pressure on, as Kent State isn’t an explosive offense that will take chances down field.
