OHIO U over C Michigan by 16
Poor special teams and a lack of discipline has left the Chippewas staggering into this conference road opener as a 2-0 start has been nullified by a 0-3 SUATS and ITS slide, including a 31-14 home setback to Miami Ohio in their MAC lid-lifter two Saturday’s ago. Making matters worse, the 4-1 Bobcats – winners of eight of their last 10 regular-season contests – enter on a 3-0 SUATS win skein and a large ‘Chip’ on their shoulders as they have dropped the last three in the series, including a 26-23 decision in this building in 2013 as 20-point favorites. You can be sure that HC Frank Solich – a long-term 44-12 SU and 33-21-1 ATS in games against foes off consecutive losses – will have that game tape playing in a theater near Athens. We’ll make it a double-feature and run the ones that show Central Michigan 1-10 SU and 2-9 ATS as road dogs off an away game. Enjoy the show!
