Central Michigan Chippewas at Ohio Bobcats: How to watch, game time, stream, open thread

It’s statement game time for both these squads on Saturday

NCAA Football: Central Michigan at Kansas Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Historically, the Central Michigan Chippewas (2-3, 0-1 MAC) have usually had the upper hand on the Ohio University Bobcats (4-1, 1-0 MAC) when it comes to meeting on the gridiron.

In 32 meetings since 1972, the Chips have won 25 of those matchups in this cross-divisonal rivalry, including the most recent three matchups (2013, 2014 and 2016.) Alas, that’s what the history books say.

Fast-forward to 2017 and Ohio is in prime position could snap the three-game skid against CMU and claim their first victory since 2001 over the Maroon and Gold.

Ohio met former conference partner and MAC East for UMass for a wildly entertaining 58-50 win, where new starting quarterback Nathan Rourke collected four total touchdowns en route to the team’s third-straight victory.

CMU didn’t have as good of a time on Saturday, taking a 2-0 lead on a game-opening safety before falling by a final score of 28-8, due in part to a multitude of special teams miscues and untimely, game-changing penalties.

They’ll meet in Athens, Ohio for the first time sine 2013 in what will be a statement game for both squads.
