Preview


This was the expected MAC Championship game at the start of the season and neither the Northern Illinois Huskies (12-0) nor the Bowling Green Falcons (9-3) have disappointed as they get set to meet at Ford Field in Detroit. Both teams should have the confidence to knock off the other, although this game likely means a little more to the Huskies who want to get into a big Bowl game with an unbeaten record behind them.

While the Huskies are unbeaten, Bowling Green will come into the game off the back of a 4 game winning run. They have dominated Defensively since losing to Toledo and the Falcons have only allowed 17 points in their 4 game win streak, but that will be tested by this Northern Illinois Offense.

Jordan Lynch has continued his dominating play from the Quarter Back position and is both capable of running the ball or throwing the ball with success. That running ability is likely to be the key to this game as the Huskies should be able to take advantage of Bowling Green's Defense that has given up 4.2 yards per carry on the season.

With Lynch behind Center, Northern Illinois are pounding the ball on the ground for 6.7 yards per carry on the season and they should be able to keep the chains moving with that attack. Jordan Lynch has 20 rushing Touchdowns for the season and has to be accounted for at all times, but you also have to be aware of what he can do throwing the ball as he also has 22 passing Touchdowns.

However, Bowling Green will feel their Defense will be good enough to prevent the aerial attack as they have allowed just 161 yards per game through the air which is 4th in the nation. They can get pressure up front, but the Huskies Offensive Line has been strong and Lynch has avoided making mistakes by throwing Interceptions. With the Huskies likely to be in third and short situations in most cases, it will be tough for Bowling Green to shut down this Offense unless Lynch was unable to play.

While it is the Falcons Defense that gets most of the attention, it would be foolish to ignore their Offensive potential too. Travis Greene and William Houston have both been effective at the Running Back position, combining for 21 Touchdowns on the ground and moving the chains at 5 yards per carry. Northern Illinois have been pretty good at defending against the run, but Bowling Green should have some success with that element of the game and give Matt Johnson a decent position to make plays at Quarter Back.

Johnson has thrown 18 Touchdown passes and he will have success throwing against this Secondary that has allowed over 260 yards per game through the air. Where the Huskies Defense will have success is their ability to rush the pass against this Offensive Line, while they have also been a turnover creating machine.

Northern Illinois' Defense have produced 17 Interceptions and also recovered a further 10 fumbles to give their Offense more possessions to work with. Bowling Green have protected the ball this season, but that is an area that could produce the difference if the Falcons are slightly off their game.

The Huskies crushed Bowling Green when they last met a couple of years ago, but both teams are different now. The Falcons have more experience now and will expect to make this a more competitive game.


Prediction


This looks like being a good game to decide the MAC Championship this season and I do think the right two teams are getting the opportunity to play for the title.

Bowling Green will have their success when their Offense has the ball and they could have every chance of winning this game if they can avoid the mistakes that the Huskies Defense has relied on all season.

The Huskies have turned the ball over 27 times and giving Jordan Lynch and this Offense extra possessions will only end well for Northern Illinois. Lynch has been very good again this season and his ability to run the ball from the Quarter Back position will negate the strength of the Bowling Green Defense.

While the Falcons have been strong against the pass, I think the Huskies will be able to run the ball against them and keep the Offense in third and short situations. Those should be easier to complete for Lynch either through the air or on the ground and I think it will be tough to keep up with this Offense for Bowling Green who have been dependent on their Defense.

The Ford Field turf should also favour the speed game of Northern Illinois and they have been beating teams fairly comfortably this season. I expect the Huskies to take the title home with a Touchdown win at least in this one.

The Pick :

Northern Illinois Huskies 31-24 Bowling Green Falc


FIXED ODDS BETTING :

I'll back the Northern Illinois Huskies - 4.5 Points @ 1.92 (Ladbrokes)
