Larry Scott vs Chris Creighton
Last season, the Howard Bison faced challenges early on, starting off shakily by suffering five losses in their opening six games. Yet they rallied with an impressive 4-1 run at the end to earn 5-6 overall and MEAC co-championship honors; which is quite an achievement considering they had such an underwhelming start to the year. Head Coach Larry Scott entered his fourth season leading this team, offering stability and experience; offensive coordinator Lee Hull and defensive coordinator Troy Douglas also have four year of tenure on their teams which suggests an impressive game plan will unfold over four seasons of existence.
Looking towards 2023, the Bison’s lineup features quarterback Quinton Williams who boasts a 64.6% completion rate with 1,885 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. Their ground game is led by Jarett Hunter averaging 5.2 yards per carry while wide receiver Antoine Murray offers reliable receiving opportunities averaging 15.4 yards per catch. By mixing together veteran and new talent players into their roster, they hope to take advantage of winnable games on their schedule and make an impressionful mark in the standings.
Eastern Michigan Eagles Aim for the MAC Crown
Eastern Michigan enters the 2023 season with high expectations after posting an impressive 9-4 mark and winning their bowl game last season, led by Quarterback Taylor Powell with his impressive 65% completion rate and 2,111 passing yards, leading a roster consisting of experienced veterans as well as promising newcomers like running back Samson Evans (1166 rushing yards) and Tanner Knue (632 receiving yards).

Though they face several hurdles in 2018, including the departures of key players like quarterback Taylor Powell and key receivers, such as Evans and Knue are expected to fill those voids through emerging talent. They’ll play an instrumental role in maintaining offensive momentum.
On Friday evening, fans can expect an intense battle of strategies and skillsets between these two teams, both boasting talented quarterbacks who can produce explosive plays – setting up what promises to be an action-packed, high-scoring battle between these teams.
With recent performance trends in mind, Eastern Michigan Eagles enter this matchup as the favorite. Their consistent ability to cover the spread and execute balanced offensive strategies gives them an advantage against the Bison.
