The Western Michigan Broncos will play the Central Michigan Chippewas in a MAC Game on Wednesday night at Kelly/Shorts Stadium in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.

The Western Michigan Broncos are 3-7 (2-4) this season after they lost to Northern Illinois by a score of 24-21 in their last game. Western Michigan was out gained by a total of 353-316 in this game and turned the ball over twice in the loss. The Western Michigan offense is averaging 19.8 points per game with 183.2 passing yards per game and 124.6 rushing yards per game. Treyson Bourguet has thrown for 499 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception for the Broncos this season. Sean Tyler has rushed for 719 yards and five scores, while Corey Crooms has caught 50 passes for 725 yards and five touchdowns for Western Michigan. The WMU defense is giving up 26.5 points per game and 363.9 yards per game.

The Central Michigan Chippewas are 4-6 (3-3) this season after they defeated Buffalo by a score of 31-27 in their last game. Central Michigan trailed 24-7 at halftime, but out scored Buffalo by a total of 24-3 in the second half for the win. The Central Michigan offense is averaging 26.8 points per game with 233.5 passing yards per game and 160.5 rushing yards per game. Daniel Richardson has thrown for 1,988 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Chippewas this season. Lew Nicholas III has rushed for 561 yards and six scores, while Carlos Carriere has caught 44 passes for 509 yards and two touchdowns for CMU.

Western Michigan is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games. The under is 4-0 in Western Michigan’s last 4 games. Central Michigan is 15-1-1 ATS in their last 17 Wednesday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 11-2 in Central Michigan’s last 13 Wednesday games. The road team is 9-1 ATS in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

This is a huge rivalry game between two schools that are having a rough season, but it should be entertaining to watch. Central Michigan can still get to a bowl game, but they have to win their last two games of the season to get to 6-6. Western Michigan has been very inconsistent on offense, while Central Michigan has found their groove and has won three of their last four games. I think CMU wins this game, but I am taking the points with Western Michigan.
