W8 Team Tier Change Game Comment
1 Ball State 1 1 Win 38-17 at WMU They don't have the undefeated record but Ball State is playing the best whistle to whistle football in the conference.
2 NIU 1 -1 Winn 38-17 at CMU I know all the talk will be about the amazing day Jordan Lynch had but these games where they let poor teams hang around may mean trouble later on.
3 BGSU 2 1 Bye Moved up on the Bye Week because of Toledo's trouble with navy and lingering injuries.
4 Buffalo 2 1 Winn 32-3 vs Umass UB once again got out to a very slow start against a much weaker opponent. Worse than that Buffalo took a few key injuries.
5 Toledo 2 -2 W 45-44 vs Navy This was a very costly win for Toledo. If Fluellen's knee is seriously injured the Toledo Offense has lost their most effective weapon just when their schedule starts to lighten up.
6 Ohio 2 0 Win 56-28 at EMU The final score makes it look like Ohio dominated the Eagles but the fact of the matter is that EMU was in driving to take the lead well into the game.
7 Kent 2 0 L 38-21 at South Alabama Kent avoids falling only because of the people being them. Dri Archer being back in the saddle was not enough to make up for a terrible third down defense.
8 Akron 3 1 W 24-17 at Miami The Zips win elevated them out of the bottom cluster of teams in the conference. They are playing better football than their record indicates.
9 CMU 3 -1 L 38-17 vs NIU The Chips hung around with NIU for the first half but they had no answer for Lynch. Next week they get Ball State but they finish with UMass, EMU, and WMU so 6-6 is within reach.
10 UMass 4 0 Loss 32-3 at Buffalo The Minute Men did not get their first FBS win streak today but at least next week they host Western Michigan.
11 EMU 4 0 Loss 56-28 vs Ohio Typical EMU Game. For everything one thing they did right they did three or more wrong. The Eagles were tied at 21 and driving to take the lead. Then Ohio Woke up.
12 WMU 4 0 Loss 38-17 vs Ball State The Bronco's last, best chance for a win might just be next week when they Row teir boat out east to take on the Minutemen.
13 Miami 4 0 L 24-17 vs Akron This may have been Miami's last "winnable" game of the season. The RedHawks can start thinking about playing spoiler for the rest of the season.
