In a game from NCAA Football Week 13, we will see Northern Illinois at Western Michigan.
Northern Illinois didn’t impress at all in its 13-7 home loss against Miami OH but they gain entry to the MAC Championship game since Western Michigan failed to win against Ball State. The Huskies’ offense was very poor in its last game and it will need to improve. The running game was there for the most part but the passes were terribly thrown. Nonetheless, this is a good year for Northern Illinois who beat BYU on the road and they have just one loss in the MAC Conference.
The Broncos’ have a good team with a better than overage offense, however, its defense is a mess. It just allowed 41 points to a Ball State team that is not known for its offensive efficiency. Western Michigan is allowing 34.5 points per game and I expect many points scored against this side in this one as well.
Northern Illinois might rest a few starters since they are already qualified for the MAC Championship game while Western Michigan is still playing for bowl eligibility. I expect this game to produce many offensive big plays, resulting in an over.
