Line: Northern Illinois -17.5

The Mac championship features 2 teams with winning streaks. Northern Illinois has won 9 straight coming into their season finale at home. Miami of Ohio has won 4 straight and will be looking to on a high note.

Stats to consider:

Miami (Ohio) RedHawks:

  • The RedHawks are 8-4 with a 7-1 MAC record.
  • They are 3-3 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 23.6 (50th)
  • Points for per game: 20.1 (104th)
  • Passing yards a game: 243.4 (40th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 96.6 (114th)

Northern Illinois Huskies:

  • The Huskies are 10-2 with an 8-0 MAC record.
  • They are 5-0 at home.
  • Points against per game: 18.5 (16th)
  • Points for per game: 39.3 (11th)
  • Passing yards a game: 172.8 (96th)

What to watch for:

  • RedHawks Sophomore QB Zac Dysert has thrown for 2,406 yards 13 TDs and 13 Ints. Dysert will not play in this game and should hinder the Miami offense. He is replaced by Freshman QB Austin Boucher. Boucher has thrown for 498 yards 3 TDs and only 1 Int.
  • RedHawks Senior RB Thomas Merriweather has rushed for 736 yards and 8 TDs. He has rushed for over 140 yards in each of the last 2 weeks with 2 TDs combined.
  • The Huskies have been lead by Senior RB Chad Spann who has rushed for 1,239 yards and 20 TDs.
  • Huskies Junior QB Chandler Harnish has rushed for 1,949 yards 17 TDs and 5 Ints. He has rushed for 761 yards and 5 ITDs.

All sports picks revolve around the important positions. QB is arguably the most important football position and the RedHawks will be without their starting QB. With them having a Freshman starting QB, this Northern Illinois defense should thrive as they rank 11th in points against. The Huskies also have the much better offense and should be able to put up a 30 spot.
