# LW Δ Last Game Comment
1 1 0 Toledo Bye Toledo is just playing like a cut above the rest
2 2 0 WMU W: 55 - 3 vs Ball State But Western Michigan has the fire power to make the Rockets earn the MAC West title
3 3 0 Ohio W: 58 - 50 at UMass It's becoming clear that Ohio is going to be hard for anyone to stop. Nathan Rourke threw for 181 yards and ran for 113 yards
4 4 0 NIU L: 34 - 28 at SDSU NIU allowed a kirck return and interception return for a touchdown, that was the difference in San Diego.
5 5 0 EMU L: 24 - 20 at Kentucky The Eagles outgained the Wildcats and had a chance to win in the closeing seconds. It would have been a nice feather in their cap.
6 6 0 Miami L: 52 - 17 at Notre Dame You didn't expect much out of this game but even against the Irish Gus Ragland was 19-37 for 262 YDS and 2 TD. Miami will push Ohio this sesaon
7 8 1 Buffalo W: 27 - 13 at Kent So the Bulls, with a backup running back and quarterback are winning games. They could be interesting this year.
8 7 -1 BSU L: 55 - 3 at WMU Justin Hall's 13 receptions for 121 yards was all Ball State could muster. BSU is going to get to test themselves against Akron to see where they stand
9 9 0 CMU L: 28 - 8 at Boston College Run defense was not exactly a thing for CMU this week, hopefully BC was just an outlier for them.
10 11 1 Akron W: 34 - 23 vs BGSU AKron has a chance to get back to 500 this season next week against Ball State. It could be a good measure of their progress.
11 12 1 Kent L: 27 - 13 vs Buffalo George Bollas seems to be finding himself in the role of Quarterback. But their run defense was unable to contain UB.
12 10 -2 BGSU L: 34 - 23 at Akron It's fair to drop Bowling green to the basement, they are just not playing well in any phase of the game.

Bowling Green’s decent is complete, for the Falcons there is nowhere to go but up. Akron handled them with relative ease and the Zips are to 2-3 on the season.

The top stayed unchanged. Ohio’s inability to slow down UMass almost cost them but the Bobcat’s won 58-50. The better MAC teams on their schedule will be able to score some points.

NIU didn’t move despite beating themselves in San Diego.

Buffalo and Ball State swap spaces for now. The Bulls could be a top half of the MAC team but it’s too hard to tell from the sample of teams they have played.
