Key matchup: NMU’s running offense vs Tiffin’s lack of defense. The Wildcats have focused on running the ball since quarterback Carter Kopach’s season-ending injury against Grand Valley. The Dragons are ranked last in the GLIAC in every defensive statistic except opponents passing yards, where they are ranked fifth.

Key stat: Tiffin has one conference win, two years ago at home against Northern Michigan in a 4OT affair. This is the first time that NMU will return to Tiffin since that lost in 2008. Tiffin’s 41 points allowed last week was their best scoring defense result since week three when they held 1-7 Findlay to 10 points.

Prediction: NMU isn’t doing the best right now, but anyone in NCAA Division II could beat Tiffin. NMU 31 Tiffin 7
