NCAA Football: Buffalo at Miami (Ohio) Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

So things moved around quite a bit this week. Suddenly EMU’s not a novelty, they are a threat to beat NIU and WMU after a close loss to Toledo, or the Rockets are nowhere near the gangbusters I believed them to be.

Ohio’s and Miami’s losses along with UB’s performance and Akron’s win suddenly makes the East looks like it might be up for grabs.

# LW Δ Last Game Comment
1 1 0 Toledo W 20 - 15 vs EMU The score was closer than the game here but Toledo gets by one of their two real competators for the MAC West
2 4 2 NIU W 24 - 3 vs Kent Back above 500 with a solid defenive performance against Kent but their Running game was really questionable.
3 5 2 EMU L 20 -15 at Toledo EMU is for real this season, they are way better than their 2-3 record and should be abvled to get to 6-7 wins again.
4 2 -2 WMU W 71 - 68 @Buffalo Either Buffalo is way better than advertiesed or WMU is furthre behind Toledo than expected
5 3 -2 Ohio L 23 - 20 vs CMU Ohio pulled out all the stops but Shane Morris and the CMU passing game was too much for the bobcats
6 9 3 CMU W 23 - 20 at Ohio Shane Morris continues to impress. He gives the Chips a punchers chance in enough games to go bowling this year.
7 7 0 Buffalo L 71 - 68 vs WMU The loss is a hard pill to swallow, but nobody expected the Bulls to push WMU this hard. UB may be able to push Ohio for the East this year.
8 10 2 Akron W 31 - 3 vs BSU Akron did just about everything right against Ball State. Passed well, ran decently, and even put up a pick six. Don't look now, Akron least the East
9 6 -3 Miami L 37 - 29 vs BGSU Just when you think you have Miami figured out they let the languising Falcons come in and score their first win of the year.
10 8 -2 BSU L 31 - 3 at Akron Ok, I had them way to high to start the season. Caleb Huntley is a beast in the running game but outside of that they don't bring a lot
11 12 1 BGSU W 37 - 29 @ Miami It's probably too little too late for a chance at a bowl game, especially with their schedule. But Maybe BGSU can make something of this year.
12 11 -1 Kent L 24 - 3 at NIU It's not that Kent is losing, it's that they are not looking any better week to week.
