1 2 1 Toledo W: 37-24 @ Nevada Quality road win for Toledo and while they overtake Western Michigan it's worth noting that Nevada is no Michigan State
2 1 -1 WMU L: 28-14 @ Mich State The bad news is that the Bronco's are 0-2 to start the year. The good news is that they played well through the hard part of their schedule
3 5 2 BSU W: 51 - 31 vs UAB UAB is a rebuilding program but dropping 51 points on any FBS program is a good look for the Cardianls. The Neal to Hall connection is legit
4 6 2 EMU W: 16 - 13 @ Rutgers Yea Rutgers is a basement B10 team but EMU is still 2-0 with a win over a B10 team.
5 4 -1 NIU W: 38 - 10 vs EIU NIU dominated their in state FCS rival start to finish.
6 3 -3 Ohio L: 44 - 21 @ Purdue Big(ish) drop for the Cats because EMU, and BSU played great games, plus Purdue is not the Class of the B10.
7 10 3 CMU W: 45 - 27 @ Kansas Yes it's Kansas, but it's still a win over a Big12 team on the road. Shane Morris exploeded for 467 passing yards and 5 touchdowns.
8 8 0 Miami W: 31 - 10 vs Austin Peay Miami holds their place with a win vs an FCS team
9 9 0 Buffalo L: 21 - 17 @ Army Buffalo looked like a MAC east contender in the first half and a MAC least contender in the second.
10 7 -3 BGSU L: 35 - 27 vs South Dakota Safe to say Bowling Green's days atop the East are done, unless this is a slow start then it looks pretty clear for Ohio.
11 12 1 Akron W: 52 - 3 vs UAPB This could be just the spark Arkon needs.
12 11 -1 Kent W: 38 - 31 vs Howard They needed to comback against an FCS team, so the fall behind Akron

Toledo overtakes WMU based on a road win at Nevada and EMU bolts to the top half of the conference with a win over Rutgers (yes, I know how bad Rutgers is but still).

CMU also moves up a lot while Bowling Green and Ohio plummet.
