Matchup: Miami Redhawks @ Akron Zips
Date: Friday, November 17th, 6:00 ET
Location: InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field, Akron, OH
Game Line: Miami -10.5
Over/Under 48

The 6-4 Miami of Ohio Redhawks will look to keep their hopes at a MAC East title alive Wednesday night when they travel to Akron to take on the 0-10 Zips. The Redhawks have been impressive in conference this year, putting up a 5-1 mark with their only loss being to the Ohio Bobcats. Last week against Bowling Green, Miami withstood a late charge from the Falcons to prevail 24-21 thanks to a 33 yard Trevor Cook field goal with a second remaining. QB Zac Dysert had a very good game, considering the foggy conditions. Dysert completed 19 of 25 passes for 221 yards and a score and also ran for 20 yards and a TD in the win. RB Thomas Merriweather had a good game running the ball as well, carrying the rock 17 times for 88 yards and a touchdown. As for Akron, the season can’t end soon enough for the Zips. Akron has lost eight of their 10 games by double digits and even lost to FCS opponent Gardner-Webb (a team that is only 3-7 themselves) earlier this year. Two Saturdays ago, the Zips almost got their first win of the season but fell 37-30 to Ball State in double overtime. QB Patrick Nicely had an up and down game, throwing for four touchdowns but also throwing three interceptions while only completing 46% of his passes for 178 yards. RB Alex Allen had a very good game for the Zips on the ground, rushing 25 times for 165 yards. If Akron has any hope of beating Miami, they must stop turning the ball over after another multiple turnover game last week.

Matchup: Bowling Green Falcons @ Toledo Rockets
Date: Wednesday, November 17th, 8:00 ET
Location: Glass Bowl, Toledo, OH
Game Line: Toledo -10
Over/Under 54

The 6-4 Toledo Rockets will host the 2-8 Bowling Green Falcons Wednesday night in the battle for the Peace Pipe. The last time college football betting fans saw the Rockets, Toledo was getting its doors blown off by Northern Illinois 65-30 on national television last Tuesday night. Toledo was dominated in all aspects of the game, mainly putting up their gaudy numbers in the second half when they were already down four scores. RB Adonis Thomas had some huge second half runs, finishing the day with 10 carries for 152 yards and two touchdowns. QB Terrance Owens had a decent game as well, completing 18 of 38 passes for 186 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Defensively, Toledo must improve after allowing the Huskies to rack up 584 yards of offense on 70 plays for 8.3 yards per play. As for Bowling Green, the Falcons suffered a tough loss last week on a last second FG when they fell 24-21 to the Miami (OH) Redhawks. In the game, RB Willie Geter was pretty much held in check with only 16 carries for 34 yards but did manage two touchdowns on the day. QB Matt Schilz must improve on his numbers from last week as well, completing 17 of 29 passes for 176 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
