So we've been running the online dynasty (at least the XBox version) for two weeks now and thought you'd all would like to know what's been going on. Here are some of the highlights from each of the weeks so far:
- Week 1: BGSU beats Tulsa, WMU upsets MSU 21-20, CMU barely falls to Michigan (who has ran the table so far), NIU finally beats Iowa 28-24, and Miami defeats Marshall.
- Week 2: EMU shocks Penn State 36-14, Miami downs Kentucky 28-21, Kent St beats BGSU 38-31, Buffalo downs Baylor 45-28.

|Ohio||5-2 (2-1)||EMU||6-1 (2-1)|
|UMass||3-4 (2-1)||Toledo||4-3 (2-1)|
|Miami||4-3 (1-2)||WMU||6-2 (2-2)|
|BGSU||3-4 (1-2)||Ball State||5-3 (2-2)|
|Kent St||1-7 (1-3)||CMU||4-4 (1-3)|
We do need a coach on the X-Box side. However, you won't go bowling, as it is either Kent State or Akron. Sorry.
As for statistics, the MAC has a strong showing there too! Keith Wenning, Tyler VanTubbergen, and Tyler Benz are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively in the nation for throwing yards. Edwards and Lynch are 4th and 5th in the nation for rushing and Daniel Braverman and Russell from EMU are 1st and 2nd in receiving. As for tackles, well the MAC has 4 of the top 5 spots with Justin Currie leading the way. Mick Dubose and Ingle from BSU are tied for 1st in sacks with 7.
As for the Heisman, both Jordan Lynch and Tyler Benz are fighting it out at the top for the award.
Stay tuned as next weekend should see the MAC picture almost fully formed.
