Series History 

Central Michigan rocked Ohio the last time the two played, defeating the Bobcats 18-9 in the second round of the 2019 MAC Tournament. That season, Ohio lost its three-game series with the Chippewas two games to one. 

Keys to victory 

For the Bobcats to get back on track, Ohio needs to get back to scoring runs the way it can. In two of Ohio’s losses to Bowling Green, the Bobcats outhit the Falcons but couldn’t bring the fellas home. Central Michigan’s bats, however, are as hot as ever. Against Dayton, the Chippewas outscored the Flyers 34-14 over a four-game series.
