The Central Michigan Chippewas look to continue their resurgence with a road trip to Kent State. Central Michigan has won three in a row after outscoring Eastern Michigan 42-30 in week eleven. Both teams finished with around 330 yards but the game was surprisingly close until Eastern Michigan quarterback Brogan Roback threw a pick six with 48 seconds left for his 5th interception of the game. The Chippewas lone fumble was return for a touchdown so mistakes were a determining factor in the outcome.
