The Central Michigan Chippewas take the field at the Akron  Zips in a MAC college football matchup.

The Western Michigan Broncos stayed in MAC championship hunt with a 35-10 victory at Central Michigan. Western Michigan jumped to a 21-0 halftime lead and coasted the rest of the way with a 356-269 yardage edge and a huge 3-0 turnover advantage.

Broncos quarterback Jon Wassink completed 5-9 for 51 yards and ran eight times for 28 yards and three touchdowns.

LeVante Bellamy paced the Western Michigan offense with 145 rushing yards on 19 totes and a trip to the end zone while catching a five yard pass followed by a 19 carry, 96 yard effort from Jamauri Bogan who also scored. Four Broncos caught passes with Giovanni Ricci snagging a 28 yard pass.

The Akron Zips kept their Bowl hopes alive following a 24-23 overtime win at Kent State as a four point road favorite. Both teams finished with around 365 yards of offense with Akron stopping a two point conversion in OT.

Zips quarterback Kato Nelson hit on 19-35 throws for 219 yards and a touchdown and interception while leading the ground game with 90 yards and a TD on 17 touches.

Van Edwards Jr. added 39 rushing yards on 13 touches while Andre Williams paced the Zips receiving corps with four receptions for 72 yards and a score.

Under is 4-0 in Central Mchigan Chippewas last 4 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and Central Michigan Chippewas are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and Central Michigan Chippewas are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games. Akron Zips are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games on fieldturf and under is 11-1 in Akron Zips last 12 vs. a team with a losing record and under is 18-4 in Akron Zips last 22 games on fieldturf. Central Michigan Chippewas are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings and home team is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and favorite is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. 

It’s time for Central Michigan to go on a season ending hot streak to go Bowling which has been their MO. I don’t think that happens in 2018…

Pick:
Akron -5.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
