I've been giving you this surprisingly solid EMU squad all season to incredible results, and now after they became bowl eligible for the third time in four years under HC Chris Creighton after not going to one for 30 years previous to his tenure.
The Eagles will look to gain a better bowl game by taking down a Kent State squad that is grasping for straws.
EMU has the superior QB in Mike Glass III and he will be a major factor in this one as will the aggressive EMU D. Look for Kent State QB Crum to be on the run all day as he has been sacked 12 times in the last four games.
Look for the Eagles to win and cover this one with relative ease as you recover from a solid Thanksgiving Day filled with friends, family, tons of food, and some cool gobblers:)
Check out my college football picks last week by clicking here, where I went 2-1, bringing me to 9-3 over the past 4 weeks.
OHIO STATE AT MICHIGAN "THE GAME"
LINE: OHIO STATE -9.5
DTM PICK: MICHIGAN +9.5
Yes the Wolverines are 0-4 against the Buckeyes in the Jim Harbaugh era, yes Michigan got historically embarrassed as a TD fave last year in Columbus, and yes Michigan just does not seem to win these types of games since Harbaugh came to Ann Arbor.
But the Wolverines are actually pretty damn good and while Ohio State might just be the best team in the country. This is going to be a battle till the end.
Michigan has averaged over 41 points, allowed just 11.2, and less than 235 yards per game since the last second Penn State loss five games ago. Now they get a chance to reclaim some of their past glory against their bitter, most hated rival.
I don't know if Michigan can pull the outright upset, but this game will be close till the bitter end. Gobble up the 9.5 points and get your Thanksgiving Weekend Saturday started off right!
