What to Know

Considering their sizeable disadvantage in the spread, the Massachusetts Minutemen can expect to have a real challenge on their hands Saturday. They will play host again and welcome the Eastern Michigan Eagles to Warren P. McGuirk Alumni Stadium, where kick-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET. The Minutemen will be hoping to build upon the 28-17 win they picked up against EMU when they previously played in November of 2015.

UMass ended up a good deal behind the Boston College Eagles when they played last week, losing 45-28.

Meanwhile, EMU has to be aching after a bruising 34-7 defeat to the Wisconsin Badgers last week. EMU was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 24 to nothing. Their only offensive touchdown came from DB David Carter Jr..

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
