Not too much change this week, outside of a small drop for the Broncos (towards the middle - what a shock!) The Rockets have a better conference record than the Eagles, but I am not promoting a team through the rankings when they surrender 63 points in consecutive weeks (and, for all I know, might do it again this Friday night against Central).
After the jump, you will find all of the lack of changes you desire.
|Rank||Rank (Pv)||Team||Record||What We Learned|
|1||1||(7-3)||An impressive win against the Falcons, though I'm not sure how much was the defense really shutting down the Falcons.|
|2||2||(7-3)||They keep winning, so I keep them up here.|
|3||3||(6-4)||Probably should have beaten Ball State, but they still have an outside shot at the title with continued success and a little help.|
|4||4||(6-4)||They have a better conference record than EMU, but I am not upping the rank of a team that has allowed 63 points in back-to-back games.|
|5||6||(6-4)||"Bye week" after the Wenning show pulled one out last Saturday, let's see if he can keep up with the chunks of yards his D will give up to Harnish|
|6||7||(6-4)||I was right, the Coyer era is here - maybe he can take some notes from Army's nice rushing attack next weekend.|
|7||5||(5-5)||Alex Carder threw for 550 yards and 7 TDs and lost. What else can I say? Another .500 season, probably.|
|8||9||(4-6)||Not quite enough to take down Temple last week from Dysert and company. Good news, they get to face Western's D next go round.|
|9||8||(4-6)||And the slide continues. Would be nice to have anything else to say.|
|10||11||(3-6)||Took care of business against Akron despite missing three extra points. Kent's D has allowed their opponents inside the 30 yard line 10 times the last three games, resulting in four FGs and two TDs|
|11||10||(3-8)||Plenty of offense, but Radcliff is racking up big numbers mostly because the Chips spend all day playing from behind. That's unlikely to change against Toledo.|
|12||12||(2-8)||Not very different that Central Michigan. Just a blah year in Buffalo|
|13||13||(1-9)||So much for that little bit of life. You can't win when your only offensive talent is your running back.|
