Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

College football week two action features the Central Michigan Chippewas hosting the Kansas Jayhawks.

The Kansas Jayhawks will be looking for their first win in week two following a 26-23, overtime loss to Nicholls State as a nine point home favorite. Kansas held Nicholls State to 329 yards but only managed 255 yards with no production on the ground.

Jayhawks quarterback Peyton Bender completed 19-35 for 187 yards with a pair of touchdowns and zero picks. Kerr Johnson topped the KU receiving corps with 54 yards on three receptions including a 15 yard TD while Khalil Herbert and Dom Williams combined for 96 rushing yards on 18 carries.

The Central Michigan Chippewas had too many issues on both sides of the football in a 35-20 defeat at Kentucky as a 17 point road dog on opening day. Central Michigan trailed 427-255 in yards despite winning the turnover battle 4-0. Chippewas quarterback Tony Poljan threw for 137 yards on17-27 with no touchdowns of interceptions.

Poljan was also the top Central Michigan runner with 47 yards on 16 carries. Cameron Cole topped the Chippewas receiving corps with four receptions for 51 yards as the offense struggled to stretch the field. The Chips defense contributed to the scoring with a 20 yard fumble recovery for six but the offensive side of the football couldn’t move the chains.

Under is 5-1 in Kansas last 6 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game and Kansas are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and over is 4-1 in Kansas last 5 games in September. Over is 7-0 in Central Michigan last 7 games overall and over is 6-0 in Central Mchigan last 6 games on fieldturf and over is 5-0 in Chippewas last 5 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.

This isn’t going to be the most watched game in week two but I thnk points at a premium so something on the under...

under 55.5

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.
