MAC Blog picks: week 9

I won, I won! For the first week this season I outright won a week. I am now tied for third with Van Delay. Ohio killed everyone last week and EMU caught the two percentage leaders 'Fire Up Chips' and 'Falcon Blog' off guard. I wish I could say that I knew EMU would lose, that Lewis would blow up for 300 yards, that BSU would drop more than 500 rushing yards, but in the end I just got tired of being burned by EMU.

The big games with disagreement this week:


Temple at Navy (Temple on the road due to an unhonored contract). Hard choice because Temple is for real this year but Navy is a hard team to beat when the midshipmen are home. If Temple can win this game in any kind of convincing fashion they may start to get votes in the top 25 polls.


Kent is starting to win over the bloggers but even though the media has them as two point favorites, at home, against WMU MAC Bloggers seem to be picking the Bronco's. One thing is for sure, if the Kent D can shut down Hiller and the passing game they will have proven themselves to me.


Finally the Chips have a chance to crack the top 25 if they can go in and punish Boston college. I am picking them with my heart but so far a majority of the MAC bloggers are picking with their heads, and with Vegas.


The MAC bloggers participating are:


Buffalo - Bull Run
Northern Illinois - Red And Black Attack
Toledo - Midnight Blue and Gold
Bowling Green - Falcon Blog

Central Michigan - Fire Up Chips
