Why eastern Illinois will win
All was not so good in the 2019 season with one victory.
It wasn’t great, but the team was at least close in most games with a defense able to control most games. This year’s version should once again be able to get into the backfield and offer just enough pass defense to be good as the season goes.
Getting bombed 47-7 by SE Missouri State isn’t a way to start the season, but the Redbirds could be the star of the OVC.
The biggest advantage is the experience. The Panthers took their moguls two years ago, but now the offense should be much better in Week 2, and the defensive team has the potential to be a boulder with a good foundation to build on.
Why UT Martin will win
Here is the Skyhawk passing game… finally. He didn’t do anything in the 14-10 loss to Murray State, but it’s coming.
Taking back quarterback John Bachus after throwing 18 touchdown passes and stretching the pitch with a big play after a big play is a good start, but it all starts up front with a solid attacking front that forces the veterans to make a big improvement. after struggling. passage protection.
On the other side, here’s the pass rush… again, finally.
A few of the stars are over, but the defensive backfield will be an early force against an EIU team that should struggle to run early.

what’s going to happen
It was a 27-18 battle in 2019 when UT Martin took the win, and it should be just as good this time around.
The Skyhawks have the quarterback and the passing game, however. The passing race will be good, the big offensive plays will keep the team in the lead after a good first quarter, and it will be a good start for a team that needs to win with three of the next four games on the road.
