I dont expect the blow out of last year but I do expect Eastern Michigan to emerge victorious. Last year, Eastern Michigan was able to give Ball State a pretty good shellacking to break a six game losing streak. This year, two different teams face off against each other. Just going on averages, Ill say the final score will be 28 to 21 in favor of the Eagles.

Against the Rockets, he was able to gain 65 yards and seems to have a fifth or sixth gear. He is a pretty good passing quarterback at 85 for 134 for 144 yards but it seems like this offense needs the added spark that Mike Glass can bring. So far, Shaq Vann has been carrying the rushing load for the team but we might see Willie Parker take a few more snaps. Having not heard anything about the status of Mike Glass and having seen the game on Saturday, I will assume that the Eastern Michigan offense will be led by Tyler Wiegers. Since we saw him on Saturday, it is entirely possible that we might see Jarius Grissom take a few snaps.

Coaches Poll

Week 1 to Week 2 in the NFL. I know it. Can you smell the overreaction? The question now is whether or not these teams can clean it up and be what we expected or if those surprise teams continue to turn heads. You know it. Can you feel the perception change?

QB Brogan Roback is a good one but he has thrown a few too many interceptions (10-8 TD to INT ratio) for our liking. The running game has not been able to get on track as the top three RBs are averaging just 4.1, 3.6 and 3.8 yards per carry. They have two really good WRs in Sergio Bailey and Antoine Porter and those men will have to do WORK to keep Eastern Michigan in the game. That is bad news going up against one of the best (THE best ?) secondaries in the MAC and FREAK DL Sutton Smith. Northern Illinois plays great defense (#12 FBS) and are going to be really tough at home against a team that cannot run the ball effectively.

YES Network is in line to broadcast the matchup and the opening pitch will be at 7:10 p.m. ET. Rafael Devers and the Boston Red Sox are playing host to their surging AL East foe New York Yankees at Fenway Park.

The Ball State defense is not as good at forcing turnovers as Eastern Michigan, but they might be able to force one or two. Im not sure how they will fare against the pass defense though. Eastern Michigan may be able to find its running game against a defense that allowed an average of 196 rushing yards per game.

German still leads the Huskies with an average of 19.8 points and 3.1 assists per game while Lacey James leads the Huskies in rebounding with 6.7 rebounds per game this season. Levi Bradley led the Huskies with 16 points on 7 of 9 shooting while Rod Henry-Hayes and Noah McCarty each had 12 points with Henry-Hayes shooting a perfect 4 for 4 from downtown while McCarty grabbed a team-high 9 rebounds. The Northern Illinois Huskies will look to build some steam after snapping a 6-game losing streak with a 70-65 win over Western Michigan in their last outing. As a team, Northern Illinois is averaging 73.5 points per game on 47.2% shooting from the field, 35.4% from behind the arc and 72% from the foul line this season. Dante Thorpe added 11 points to round out the scoring in double figures for NIU in the win while Eugene German had 7 points to match his team-high 7 assists as well in the victory.

Id say home court makes the difference here, but truth be told, the Huskies havent covered any of their last 4 home games, so home court isnt that much of an advantage here. Northern Illinois with a low line at home is tempting considering how much the Eagles have struggled ATS in this matchup. Ill take a shot with the Eagles and the points as I just dont trust the Huskies right now. However, the Huskies have not only been struggling to win games as of late, but theyve been struggling to cover too, and in this line of work, a cover is pretty much all we are after.
