Sometimes line movement just massively overreacts, and the truth of the matter is that this is where we’re at right now for the MAC Championship Game. Northern Illinois is the better of these two teams, and we’ll stand by that in spite of what the BCS rankings say at the moment. If the Golden Flashes end up in the BCS, they’re going to get absolutely obliterated by a team like Florida State, and it won’t even be remotely humorous to watch. However, the Flashes aren’t a 10-1 ATS team against FBS schools without reason this year. They don’t play the best defense in the MAC, but they don’t play the worst either, and if there is a unit that might be able to contain QB Jordan Lynch, this is the unit that can get the job done. We also really love this Kent State rushing attack, which features not just one, but two 1,000+ yard rushers, and that could control the ball and force the Huskies into some mistakes that we just don’t think they can overcome. Remember that NIU didn’t play one of the best defensive teams in the MAC this year, and every time it ran across some adversity, whether it be against Iowa, against Kansas, or against Toledo, games ended up being quite close. We think that the Flashes very well could be headed to the BCS as a result.

Northern Illinois vs. Kent State Pick: Kent State Golden Flashes +7.5
Northern Illinois vs. Kent State Score Prediction: Kent State 29 – Northern Illinois 28
