In a game from NCAA Football Week 12, we will see Miami Ohio at Northern Illinois.
Miami Ohio is coming off a narrow win over the Ohio Bobcats. They won by 30-28 and they are showing some consistency currently, winning their last 2 games. They are still in bowl contention and few more wins might get them there. The biggest issue for the Redhawks is their defense which is giving up over 28 points per game. They made some early stops in their previous game and therefore, the late push by Ohio was not enough. This time they will be going up against a good defense and it will be a challenge for their high-powered offense.
The Northern Illinois Huskies are giving up just 21 points per game. They are usually taking out the run first and then they are making the teams one dimensional, allowing them only to pass the ball. The Huskies need to score early, in order to make their opponents pass the football.
Both defenses need to be on their top in this game. I expect this to be a low scoring game and the Huskies’ defense to neutralize Gus Ragland. Miami Ohio will not be able to run its offense as usual and this will cost the Redhawks the game.
