We have reached week eight of the college football season, and most teams are now playing the conference portion of their schedule.
One of this games this weekend is an MAC showdown at Rynearson Stadium.
It’s an all Michigan showdown when the Western Michigan Broncos make the trip to Ypsilanti to take on the Eastern Michigan Eagles.
The Broncos have won the last three games played between the two teams. Last year they came out ahead 45-31.
Western Michigan Broncos
The Western Michigan Broncos have had a nice season so far this year, but had a big slip up last weekend that might really cost them.
In the first two weeks they lost to USC and Michigan State, both teams that are in the top 25, and although they lost they played well in both games.
After that game they reeled off four straight wins and seemed to be getting into a nice groove, but then last weekend the Akron Zips came to town.
They came in as 12.5 point favorites, and the defense played well all game. The offense really struggled though and that led to a 14-13 defeat.
With such a competitive MAC conference they really don’t have any room for error now, and they probably are going to have to win out to have a chance at the MAC title game.
The Broncos are led by Sophomore Jon Wassink at the quarterback position and he has played well for the most part. He has thrown for 1201 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Against Akron though he was a little inconsistent and through a very costly interception. He is facing a tough Eagles defense and he can’t turn the ball over in this game.
If he does turn the ball over, that could lead the Broncos to getting upset for the second time in as many weeks.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
On the other side of this match up is the Eastern Michigan Eagles who come into this game with a 2-4 record, but have covered the spread in all but one game.
After winning the first two games of the season the Eagles have lost four games straight, but have been in every game and probably should have won at least two of them.
In their last game they took on the Army Black Knights and ended up losing 28-27, They actually ended up scoring a touchdown with less then a minute to go but they decided to go for two, and they failed and lost by a point.
To win this game they need to make winning plays down the stretch. They have done a good job of keeping these games close they just haven’t been able to close at the end.
