what to know

The Central Michigan Chippewas and Eastern Michigan Eagles have been tied with each other since November 2015 (2-2-3), but not for long. Chippewas and EMU will square off in a Mid-American battle at noon ET on Friday at Rynearson Stadium. If the nothing-for-nothing finish from the last time they met is any indication, this matchup will be decided by the defense.

It was all tied 7-7 at halftime, but CMU wasn’t quite up to the Western Michigan Broncos in the second half when they met last week. CMU fell in a 12-10 heartbreaker. His only offensive touchdown came on a run by quarterback Bert Emanuel Jr.. Emanuel Jr. got into the highlight reel with a 60-yard TD in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, EMU was able to get a solid win over the Kent State Golden Flashes last Wednesday, winning 31-24. EMU quarterback Taylor Powell was throwing to him as he passed for three touchdowns and 315 yards on 39 attempts. That was Powell’s first 300-plus yard effort this season.

The upcoming contest is expected to be close, with CMU coming off as the favorite by just 2 points. But bettors beware: they are 0-4-1 against spread when favored.

Eastern Michigan’s win lifted them to 7-4 while Central Michigan’s loss dropped them to 4-7. We’ll see if the Eagles’ success continues or if the Chippewas can steal their positive momentum.
