They are 0-2 dropping games to Central Michigan surrendering 40 points and giving up 49 to Buffalo. Not concerned about the low scoring output against Central Michigan last week by the Huskies because the Chippewas look like the best defensive team in the MAC. They did move the football for nearly 400 yards on Buffalo. Northern Illinois is struggling to stop the run surrendering 208 yards and 5.5 per attempt. That will open Ball St for big plays in the passing game. Huskies contribute enough offense here. Play Northern Illinois and Ball St over 62 points.
