Shane Morris leads Central Michigan to comeback win over Western Michigan

CMU quarterback Shane Morris threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns on Wednesday in leading CMU to a 35-28 come-from-behind win at Western Michigan

Western Michigan has fielded 112 years' worth of football players in Kalamazoo, but as of Wednesday, one stands above the rest. "At the end of the day, it comes for us what's important now, and that's Central Michigan, we've just got to take care of the job at hand".

The Western Michigan Broncos are 3-1 at home this season, 3-1 against conference opponents and 2-2 against non-conference opponents.

At 4-4 overall and 2-2 in MAC play, Central's hopes of winning the MAC West is unlikely, although they can't be counted out yet.

The Chippewas' Tee'Ondre Harvey then blocked a punt on the Broncos' ensuing possession that set up a 10-yard touchdown pass from Shane Morris to Eric Cooper with 5:50 to play - tying the game 28-28.

Statistically, Western has an advantage, with a much higher powered offense, scoring 36.2 points per game, while Central is at 25.8. The Chippewas are averaging 136.8 yards rushing and 254.4 yards passing so far this season.

Western Michigan's Jarvion Franklin fumbled early in the fourth quarter and Jonathan Ward pulled Central Michigan to 28-21 on a 29-yard touchdown run.

The Central Michigan Chippewas are 3-2 while on the road this season, 2-2 against conference opponents and 2-2 against non-conference opponents.

Franklin had 143 rushing yards on nine carries in the first quarter alone. True freshman quarterback Reece Goddard will make his first career start in a night game on national television in the biggest game this season yet.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.at Waldo Stadium.
