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.
|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.|
