Central Michigan Vs. UMass 2012: TV Schedule, Game Time, Spread And More

Jared Wickerham

UMass hasn't had much luck this season, but a strong effort could net the Minutemen their second win of the year on Senior Day.

The UMass Minutemen face the Central Michigan Chippewas on Saturday, closing out their regular season that did not see the team get a win until mid-November. The Minutemen lost their first nine games before defeating the Akron Zips, and are significant underdogs to the Chippewas.

Central Michigan has the edge on both offense and defense, scoring an average of 28.1 points per game, against 11.9 for UMass, and allowing 34.5, compared to 40 for the Minutemen. The lone Minuteman win came behind four interceptions by the defense, but they're likely to have limited opportunities against Ryan Radcliff. He has 19 touchdowns on the year with only eight interceptions.

The game will be on Massachusetts' Senior Day, and the school will hold a ceremony honoring the final senior class of the program's FCS era. Despite their troubles this year, the school is looking forward to their first year in the FBS. The program is in year two of transitioning between divisions.

Game Time: 3 p.m. ET
