Matchup: Buffalo Bulls @ Ohio Bobcats
Date: Thursday, November 4th, 7:30 ET
Location: Peden Stadium, Athens, OH
Game Line: Ohio -15.5
Over/Under 45.5

The 6-3 Ohio Bobcats will look to stay atop the MAC East standings on Thursday night when they host the 2-6 Buffalo Bulls. Last Saturday, the Bobcats pulled out a late fourth quarter win against the lowly Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns to become bowl eligible. Ohio looked sloppy throughout most of the game, but overcame four Boo Jackson interceptions to get a 38-31 victory. In the game, Jackson completed 16 of 22 passes for 240 yards with three touchdowns and also ran for 74 yards and a touchdown. WR Steven Goulet was Jackson’s favorite target, catching five balls for 126 yards on the afternoon. As for Buffalo, the Bulls have fallen mightily after losing HC Turner Gill to the Kansas Jayhawks in the offseason. In their 21-9 loss to Miami (OH) last Saturday, the offense was only able to muster 265 total yards of offense. QB Alex Zordich only completed 16 of 33 passes for 210 yards and no scores, while the running game combined to carry the ball 34 times for 55 yards. Over their last three games, the Bulls have been outscored 108 to 23 by MAC opponents.

Matchup: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets @ #20 Virginia Tech Hokies
Date: Thursday, November 4th, 7:45 ET
Location: Lane Stadium, Blacksburg, VA
Game Line: Virginia Tech -12.5
Over/Under 56.5

6-2 Virginia Tech will try to put a hammerlock on the ACC Coastal title when they host the 5-3 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Thursday night. Virginia Tech has been on a roll since dropping their first two games of the season, winning six straight en route to a two game lead on the rest of the division. Two Saturdays ago, the Hokies made short work of the Duke Blue Devils in a 44-7 romp. QB Tyrod Taylor picked apart the Duke defense, completing 13 of 17 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns on the afternoon. The Hokies were dominant in all phases of the game, racking up 491 total yards of offense while only allowing Duke to muster 208 total yards. As for the Yellow Jackets, HC Paul Johnson’s team has had an up and down season. Two Saturdays ago, they dropped their second game in conference play, a 27-13 loss to Clemson. QB Joshua Nesbitt was simply awful when he dropped back to throw, completing just six of 19 passes for 83 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Nesbitt also was uncharacteristically bad with his legs, carrying the ball 15 times for a total of two yards. The Georgia Tech running game wasn’t bad in the loss though, as the Yellow Jackets carried the ball for 242 yards on 49 carries (4.9 YPC). If Georgia Tech hopes to pull off the upset on Thursday, they will need their run game to dominate while also stopping the Hokies’ rushing attack.
