W12 Team Tier Change Game Comment
1 NIU 1 0 W 35 - 17 at Toledo Jordan Lynch, even without his primary receivers was just too much of a force for Toledo to stop. Baring catastrophe next week the Huskies will enter the MAC Championship game undefeated and in the top 15.
2 Ball State 1 0 Bye Ball State is looking to complete a 10 win season when the take on Miami. The Cards were idle this week while they hoped that Toledo could upset NIU and keep them in the MAC West race.
3 Toledo 2 0 Loss 35 - 17 vs NIU For one half the rockets defense contained Lynch but Toledo was out adjusted in the second half. The Rockets have gotten away with weak second halves against several MAC teams but against a squad like NIU if fatal.
4 BGSU 2 0 Win 58-7 at EMU If Bowling Green was looking past the Eagles to Buffalo it sure didn't show. The Bowling Green defense kept EMU to just 40 yards of offense through the first 3 quarters.
5 Buffalo 2 0 W 44-7 at Miami Buffalo spent this year proving they are not a bad MAC team but they have yet to beat a good MAC team. Next week against Bowling Green the Bulls will get one last chance and they face a a defense which has shut down many a passing game this year.
6 CMU 3 0 W 37-0 vs Umass The Chip's kept their bowl hopes alive by shutting out UMass. A win next week against EMU and Dan Enos might send CMU to back to back bowls.
7 Akron 3 1 Bye Wins against UMass, Miami, and Kent may foreshadow good things in the future for Akron. Next week they will need their a game against Toledo.
8 Kent 4 1 W 44-13 at Kent 4-8 is not where the flashes wanted to finish this season but with all the adversity they faced it might be something for the coaching staff to start building on.
9 Ohio 4 -2 L 44-13 vs Kent Tyler Tettelton's sitting down against Kent is emblematic of what the Bobcat's have been doing since just after they beat Akron back in early October
10 EMU 5 0 L 58-7 vs BGSU Stan Parrish could not get to 2-0 as the EMU head coach and the offensive showing was abysmal. Parrish can redeem himself by beating CMU next week to win the Michigan MAC trophy.
11 WMU 5 0 Bye Western Michigan has been tearing it up on the recruiting trail but on the field their last chance for win #2 comes against Northern Illinois
12 UMass 5 0 L 37-0 at CMU UMass got in CMU's path and the Chips ran them over on their quest to go bowling. They have one more chance to get a second win next week when they take on the fading Bobcats.
13 Miami 5 0 L 44-7 vs Miami Miami is one game away from their worst season in more than 100 years. To avoid it they have to get past Ball State. It could be a long off season for Miami.
