Matchup: Western Michigan Broncos @ Central Michigan Chippewas
Date: Friday, November 5th, 6:00 ET
Location: Kelly/Shorts Stadium, Mount Pleasant, MI
Game Line: Central Michigan -3.5
Over/Under 51.5

It’s the battle of the Directional Michigan schools on Friday night in Mt. Pleasant, when the 3-5 Western Michigan Broncos take on the 2-7 Central Michigan Chippewas. Both Western Michigan and Central Michigan are having down seasons after being atop the MAC West over the past few years. Central Michigan greatly misses All-MAC QB Dan LeFevour and HC Butch Jones. New QB Ryan Radcliff has failed to match LeFevour’s vast production, completing 58.6% of his passes for 2342 yards with 12 touchdowns and 15 interceptions thus far this season. Last week in the Chippewas’ 17-14 loss to Bowling Green, Radcliff completed 14 of 25 passes for 132 yards with a touchdown and an interception. On the positive side, RB Paris Cotton looked good against the Falcons, carrying the ball 23 times for 111 yards. As for Western Michigan, QB Alex Carder hasn’t been much of a step down from QB Tim Hiller this season. Last week, Carder was able to throw all over the Northern Illinois defense, completing 31 of 53 passes for 360 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions and came close to leading the Broncos to a victory over the division leading Huskies before falling 28-21. WR Jordan White was the primary target most of the day, catching 14 balls for 180 yards and a score.

Matchup: UCF Knights @ Houston Cougars
Date: Friday, November 5th, 8:00 ET
Location: John O’Quinn Field at Robertson Stadium, Houston, TX
Game Line: Houston -1.5
Over/Under 61.5

A possible preview of the Conference USA will take place Friday night when the 6-2 UCF Knights travel to Houston to take on the 5-3 Cougars. UCF has won four straight conference games to take sole possession of first place atop the C-USA East standings. They are led on offense by the backfield duo of RB Ronnie Weaver and QB Jeff Godfrey. Godfrey has done very well since taking over for QB Ryan Calabrese, and the dual threat freshman has taken great strides since winning the job. In last week’s big 49-35 win against East Carolina, Godfrey completed 8 of 12 passes for 159 yards with two touchdowns. Weaver and fellow RB Latavius Murray had a huge game on the ground for the Knights, combining to carry the rock for 227 yards and five touchdowns in the victory. Houston has turned its team remarkably in a short amount of time after losing Heisman Trophy contending QB Case Keenum and backup QB Cotton Turner in a loss to UCLA early in the season. In the last two weeks, the Cougars have scored huge wins against SMU and Memphis to put them in a tie for first atop C-USA West. Last week against Memphis, Houston dominated the game from start to finish, rushing out to a 35-3 halftime lead en route to a 56-17 victory. QB David Piland had a fantastic day, completing 20 of 23 passes for 292 yards and five touchdowns and RB Michael Hayes added 123 yards and a touchdown on the ground. This is an extremely important game for both teams so expect a hard fought affair.
