Will update with trends when / if they’re released.
The Central Michigan Chippewas no longer have their workhorse in Marcus Keene, but they showed in their season opener that there's some depth on this roster, and it's also loaded with upperclassmen. Central Michigan lost a lot last year, but a lot of its games came down to the wire, keeping games within 15 points or even single digits. This is a game where Central Michigan can hang around, as Michigan has a bit of a roster turnover to figure out as the comp picks up.
