The Central Michigan Chippewas’ only loss this season has come when they were away from home. This Saturday night, CMU travels to Miami with backup QB, RB, and defensive ends all cracking their starting lineup. Offensive Coordinator Dan Enos made it clear that this week’s game is personal for him. We can expect some explosive plays and, similar to last week, a barrage of points.

Jarren Williams: 300 Passing Yards & 3 TDs

Each week of the season Jarren Williams’ completion percentage, average per attempt, QBR, and TD count has gone up. Williams didn’t crack 300 yards last week but that was solely a result of the massive amount of points the offense put up. N’Kosi Perry took over in the third quarter for the redshirt freshman QB after he posted a stat line of 19 for 24, 254 yards, and 3 TDs. With a similar level of competition coming into Hard Rock Stadium, what kind of night do you see Williams having?

N’Kosi Perry: 1 Quarter of Play

This question is reflective of when do you the Canes will stop unleashing the gates of hell on the Chippewas and bring in the backups. Perry entered halfway through the third quarter last week. He looked like he belonged and finished the game with one TD and a 70% completion percentage. When do you see the sophomore QB taking over the game?

DeeJay Dallas: 150 Rushing Yards

DeeJay Dallas is averaging a staggering 8.4 yards a carry this season. If he rushed for six more yards against the Florida Gators, Dallas would’ve cracked the century mark in every game this year. Central Michigan played well against the Akron Zips. Akron rushed for a total of 40 yards. Dallas is the most talented runner CMU has faced this year. He has a great chance to dominate on the ground this weekend.

Brevin Jordan: 50 Receiving Yards & 1 TD

Brevin Jordan had a forgettable performance against Bethune-Cookman however the team excelled. Jordan finished with 2 catches for 2 yards. The success of Mike Harley, Mark Pope, Brian Hightower, Larry Hodges, other reserves, and on the scoreboard limited Jordan’s utility. The game against CMU will be full of ample opportunities for several pass-catchers. How do you see things panning out for the star TE?

K.J. Osborn: 50 Yards & 1 TD

Similar to Jordan, Jeff Thomas left the field with a quiet stat line last week. The blazing deep threat had 3 catches for 24 yards. Thomas has strung together three statistically forgetful weeks. K.J. Osborn has remained consistent in each game. He’s scored in back-to-back weeks. For the duration of time that Williams sees the field this week, look for him to find number 2.

Rush & Pass Defense: Under 100 Yards Each

Bethune-Cookman was held to 76 yards passing and 61 yards rushing. The Canes defense was stifling and succeeded and maintaining its intensity for four quarters. Last weekend’s shutout was a thing of beauty and dominance. With the injuries to CMU, the game could turn into another similar lopsided tilt.

4 Total Defensive Sacks

The sack totals for the last three games are as follows: Florida Gators (1), 4 (North Carolina Tar Heels), and 3 (Bethune-Cookman Wildcats). Every level of the defense consistently has gotten to the QB in consecutive weeks. Against UNC, Shaquille Quarterman, Michael Pinckney, Trajan Bandy, and Gregory Rousseau all had the honor. Last week Scott Patchan, Gurvan Hall Jr., and Sam Brooks Jr. had sacks. It may be another party at the quarterback this week from a combination of tacklers.

Turnover Chain Appearances: 2

Last week I wrote “If the turnover chain doesn’t come out this weekend, I’ll watch last year’s Pinstripe Bowl on a loop.” Thanks to Trajan Bandy forced fumble and Robert Knowles recovering it, my eyes have been saved. The Hurricanes have recovered 3 fumbles this year and have 1 INT. The turnover chain has come out in every game, this week will be no different.

40 Total Points

The point total benchmark was at 40 points last week and that number got shredded by 23. 83% of you saw the points boom & BCU demolishing coming. The bar stays exactly the same this week since CMU is a better opponent than the Wildcats. A blowout is coming this weekend. How many points do you see the Canes putting up in this stomping?

Bubba Baxa: 1 Missed Kick

I don’t want to trigger anybody but Bubba Baxa’s inconsistency shows up every week. It seems only fair to make an over/under pick for the shaky kicker for Saturday’s game. If you believe in jinxes, you can always abstain. I’ll be praying and hoping for the under all night long.
