The Buffalo Bulls and Eastern Michigan Eagles meet Saturday in college football action at Rynearson Stadium.
The Buffalo Bulls look for a big road win to get a game above a .500 record. The Buffalo Bulls have lost three of their last four road games. Matt Myers is completing 46.7 percent of his passes for 602 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions. Myers and Kyle Vantrease have combined for 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. Antonio Nunn and Jaret Patterson have combined for 532 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Zac Lefebvre has 12 receptions. The Buffalo Bulls ground game is averaging 221 yards per contest, and Patterson leads the way with 835 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Buffalo is allowing 23.4 points and 304.3 yards per game. Tyrone Hill leads the Buffalo Bulls with 55 tackles, Taylor Riggins has 5.5 sacks and Joey Banks has two interceptions.
The Eastern Michigan Eagles also need a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Eastern Michigan Eagles have won two of their last three home games. Mike Glass III is completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 1,896 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Glass has two or more touchdown passes in five of his last eight games. Arthur Jackson III and Quian Williams have combined for 852 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Dylan Drummond has 37 receptions. The Eastern Michigan Eagles ground game is averaging 108.7 yards per contest, and Shaq Vann leads the way with 318 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Eastern Michigan is allowing 32 points and 443.8 yards per game. Vince Calhoun leads the Eastern Michigan Eagles with 76 tackles, Turan Rush has five sacks and Clay Holford has one interception.
The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 11-3 ATS in their last 14 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on fieldturf and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The home team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 4-1-2 in Eagles last 7 games overall. The over is 5-1-1 in Bulls last 7 games in November.
The Buffalo Bulls have covered five of their last eight games as a road underdog. The Eastern Michigan Eagles have failed to cover six of their last nine games as a home favorite. Buffalo is playing some of its best football at the moment, but the Bulls have yet to take that success on the road and beating up on a winless Akron team doesn't count. The Eastern Michigan Eagles finally get a home game considering five of their first eight games were on the road, and they need this win to increase their chances of getting a bowl game. The last four meetings between these clubs were won by the home team. I'll lay the tiny chalk with the Eagles at home.
