MAC East Schedules, How do they look?

New, 1 comment
With Spring ball fast approaching I thought I would take a look at the MAC Football schedules and see which team(s) have the hardest route to a bowl game, or a division title. Well here is what lies ahead for each of the teams in the MAC East

Here is a break down of some schedule markers using CFN's pre season rankings:

Akr BG Buff Kent Mia Ohio TEM
Conf SOS 102 95 103 101 97 102 98
Non Conf SOS 62 67 62 54 38 62 52
Total SOS 89 86 92 88 78 91 85
Top 50 1 1 1 2 3 1 2
Top 25 1 0 0 1 1 1 1
Top 10 0 0 0 0 1 1 0
Bowl Teams 4 5 6 5 7 4 6
Bowl Winners 2 2 1 1 2 2 3
Winning Teams 4 5 6 5 7 4 6
FCS Teams 1 0 1 1 0 1 1

Hardest Conference Schedule: Bowling Green, Honorable Mention to Temple and Miami. The Cupcakes this year go to Buffalo (first time in awhile they get an easy conference draw).

Hardest Non Conference Schedule: With three top 50 teams and a top ten team Miami takes it by a country mile. What else is new the RedHawks always set the bar high. The non conference Cupcakes go to Bowling Green, sort of makes up for their conference draw. Miami also leads in most Bowl Opponents and most winning teams. Temple takes the mark for most Bowl victors on their schedule (and thats not even counting FCS champion Nova'.

What's all this mean? Meh... I had insomnia last night and was bored. CFN Ranked CMU in the 50's last season and the Chips finished ranked, Ohio picked 3rd or fourth in the East and they won the east. Ill be doing the west after the MAC Basketball championships.
