Wednesday Night Football returns when the MAC plays three games for those who love college football and sometimes the betting that comes with it! If you need your midweek fix, here’s how to watch everything happening on November 8th, when three MAC games are on the agenda, including one potentially destined for a spot in the conference championship game.
College Football Schedule, Wednesday November 9th
Buffalo vs. Central Michigan 7:00
The Bulls (5-4, 4-1 MAC) lost their first MAC game and total control of the MAC East last weekend. The loss sparked a five-game winning streak. They aren’t particularly overpowered in any area, but they are a solid football team all around. They have two rushers, Ron Cook Jr. and Mike Washington, with over 500 yards on the ground and 10 TDs combined. Central Michigan (3-6, 2-3 MAC) has won two of their last three games. But their offense is a pain to watch, barely scoring 26 points per game.
time: 7 p.m. EST
opportunities: Buffalo -1.5, total 55.5
Northern Illinois vs. Western Michigan 7:00
NIU (2-7, 1-4 MAC) fell off a cliff from last year’s MAC title run. They’ve lost seven of their last eight games and are slipping with two games. Last year it was standard for them to win games by one goal. Now they can barely keep the games in that range. The Broncos (3-6, 2-3 MAC) aren’t faring much better. They have just two FBS wins this season, although Sean Tyler is a bright spot for the 118th-ranked offense. He has 622 yards and five total points this season.
time: 19 o’clock
opportunities: NIU -1, Total 52
Kent State vs. Bowling Green 7:00
Kent State (3-6, 2-3 MAC) has had a brutal schedule this season that includes games in Washington, Georgia and Oklahoma. Their MAC record isn’t great, but they got pretty beat up in those big non-conference games earlier in the season. Coach Sean Lewis is a brilliant attacking mind and his side can make points every week. The Falcons (5-4, 4-1 MAC) are on a three-game winning streak, and they’re doing it with their defense, which allows for 13.3 points per game during the streak. Chris Bacon leads this group with 55 total tackles and a pick. But also keep an eye out for Karl Brooks. He is second in the MAC with 8 sacks for the season.
time: 19 o’clock
opportunities: Kent State -2.5, overall 57
