Idaho Vandals (1-1) at Western Michigan Broncos (0-2)

NCAAF: Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. ET

Line: Western Michigan -16

Over/Under: 54

The Idaho Vandals hit the road to take on the Western Michigan Broncos for a Saturday night contest. Western Michigan is looking to pick up their first win of the season after losing to two high caliber teams in USC and Michigan State on the road. The Broncos are expected to contend in the MAC after going an incredible 13-1 last year. In order to win the conference, they must get better play from quarterback Jon Wassink. On the season, Wassink has 146 passing yards and two interceptions. Idaho is led by Aaron Duckworth who has 222 rushing yards this season. Can Duckworth lead Idaho to a big road win?

Vandals blown out against UNLV

The Idaho Vandals lost 44-16 to the UNLV Rebels on Saturday. Idaho never threatened as UNLV jumped out to a 27-3 lead midway through the third quarter. Matt Linehan had 261 passing yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Duckworth led the Vandals with 80 rushing yards on 18 carries. Idaho had no answer for UNLV’s ground attack. The Rebels ran for 357 yards and had three touchdowns on the ground. UNLV outgained Idaho 550-384 in total yards. Jacob Sannon had a busy day with 109 receiving yards on 11 receptions. It was Sannon’s career-highs in both categories. The Vandals had their six-game win streak going back to last season snapped.

Broncos fall to Spartans

The Western Michigan Broncos lost 28-14 to the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday. Western Michigan never got going on offense as their first score came on a fumble recovery by Darius Phillips with eight minutes to play in the third quarter. Their only other score came on a 100-yard kickoff return by Phillips. Jon Wassink struggled with 79 passing yards and an interception in the game. LeVante Bellamy led the Broncos with 67 rushing yards on 12 carries. The difference in the contest was the ground attack. Michigan State had 296 rushing yards while the Broncos had 116. As a team, the Spartans had 457 total yards compared to only 195 for the Broncos.

Trends:

The Idaho Vandals are:

  • 17-37-1 ATS in their last 55 non-conference games.
  • 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
  • 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games in September.

The Western Michigan Broncos are:

  • 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games in September.
  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game.
  • 13-3 ATS in their last 16 non-conference games.

Wassink will go up against the most vulnerable defense he’s faced this year. Look for the signal-caller to make some plays early on for the Broncos. The Broncos should have no issue winning by at least two touchdowns.

The pick: Western Michigan
