Week Nine #MACtion Recap

Look at who moved into solo first place in the MAC East! That’s right, after a Bowling Green loss to Toledo; Buffalo sits in first place all by themselves entering 10.

Buffalo 41 Kent State 21- So much for this game being close. It was for one half but that was it. Branden Oliver dominated on the ground, running for 185 yards and four touchdowns as the Bulls improve to 6-2 (4-0).

Miami 16 Ohio 41- The Bobcats wanted revenge after Miami ended their 7-0 start last year and boy did they get it. Tyler Tettleton through for 306 yards and three touchdowns, all of which to to Donte Foster who set the Ohio all-time touchdown reception record in the win.

Ball State 42 Akron 24- It’s really a shame that the Cardinals lost to North Texas earlier in the year. Otherwise, they’d likely be right with Northern Illinois being ranked. I’m sure they’re still happy with where there at, improving to 8-1 (5-0) after a solid win over Akron.

Toledo 28 Bowling Green 25- Toledo got off to a 21-0 start but found holding on to the lead to be tough, allowing 25 consecutive points to the Falcons to see themselves trail 25-21 late. With the pressure on, Terrance Owens responded with an 11-yard touchdown pass with 1:22 left in the fourth to give the Rockets a critical conference win.

Western Michigan 31 Massachusetts’s 30- For a battle of two of the MAC’s worst teams, this was an entertaining contest. A UMASS touchdown looked to tie the game at 31 apiece with 22 seconds left but the Minutemen elected to try for the win, failing on a two-point conversion to fall to 1-7 (1-3).

Eastern Michigan 20 18 Northern Illinois 59- Jordan Lynch is a stud. That’s about all I can say. Four touchdown passes, one touchdown run, and a touchdown reception. The guy can do it all and he’s the reason the Huskies are 8-0 (4-0).
