It is Central Michigan week and Newschannel 3 Sports Director Andy Pepper talked with Western Michigan University head coach Tim Lester about Bowling Green and the obvious upcoming Battle for the Cannon.

WMU had another slow start on the road to Bowling Green, but overcame thanks to a 35 point second half outburst.

The Broncos defense gave up over 500 yards, but forced four turnovers, a couple of interceptions and a pair of fumble recoveries.

Jamauri Bogan with the third, 4 touchdown games of his career and first since the 2015 Bahamas Bowl.

Lester talked Battle for the Cannon rival week against Central Michigan University. Lester knows the rivalry better than anyone having played and coached the Broncos.

In the 2017 Battle for the Cannon, Western was up 28-14 after three and was outscored 21-0 in the fourth on a miserably cold and rainy night at Waldo Stadium.

The Broncos coming into the rival game as winners of five straight. The Chippewas struggling with just 1-6 overall and 0-3 in the MAC overall.

As a player Lester was 2-2 against Central and 0-2 in Mt. Pleasant.

How special is this game, especially now that the Victory Cannon has been added into the mix?

The Broncos will kickoff at Kelly/Shorts Stadium in Mount Pleasant at 3 p.m. Oct. 20.
