Mid American Conference Power Rankings - MAC

W6 Team Tier Change Game Comment
1 NIU 1 0 W 38 - 24 at Kent Nice road win in a rematch of last seasons MAC Championship Game. 700 yards of offense is a fantastic thing to do to Kent but giving up 400, and more than six per carry shows some defensive weakness.
2 Ball State 1 0 W 48 - 27 at Virginia Solid out of conference win against an ACC team that managed to open the season with a win against BYU. Ball State's Wenning continues to make his case for POY
3 Ohio 1 0 W 43 - 3 at Akron Ohio made Akron look like a cellar dweller and showed that there is little if any separation between themselves and Ball State.
4 Toledo 2 0 W 47 - 20 vs WMU The Rockets cleaned up their red zone performance and their penalty situation this week and the result was a convincing win over the floundering Broncos
5 BGSU 2 0 W 28 - 7 vs UMass Took the Falcons offense a while to get going but as usual their defense has no issues coming out strong. The Falcons smothered the UMass offense.
6 Buffalo 2 0 W 42 - 14 vs EMU UB is finally starting to consistently play like a mid tier MAC team. With a soft schedule in front3 of them there is no reason to think they can not win six or seven games this year.
7 Kent 2 0 L 38 - 24 vs NIU Nothing at all for Kent to be ashamed of here. They are still recovering Archer and still getting used to a new coach. The Flashes played the Huskies tight until the 4th quarter.
8 CMU 3 2 W 21 - 9 at Miami CMU gets their first FBS win of the season and breaks up the "Direction Michigan" futility which has occupied the bottom 10.
9 Akron 3 -1 L 43 - 3 vs Ohio Akron may have undid all of the positive momentum they had been building with a very bad showing against the Bobcats. The Zips have NIU next week before maybe a winnable game versus Miami.
10 WMU 5 1 L 47 - 20 at Toledo Last week PJ Fleck said he was not too worried about Western Michigan's struggles so far this season. After getting beaten like a drum against Toledo maybe he should start.
11 Miami 5 -2 L 21 - 9 vs CMU Miami played Central Michigan equal in every category except penalties. When a team plays as bad as Miami as been giving up nearly 100 yards in penalties makes a sure loss.
12 EMU 5 0 L 41 - 14 at Buffalo Ron English has to be on his last legs after getting thwomped by Jeff Quinn and the Bulls. EMU just became the last team in the conference that UB has beaten.
13 UMass 5 0 L 28 - 7 at BGSU Fear not UMass you play Miami next week and still have a crack at Akron and Western Michigan.
