MAC Football Links For Week 2 Matchups

Gearing up on the second week of action, here are some blog/media links for all the action. Longer previews on certain games will drop tomorrow. Miami is on a bye week.

Toledo-Ohio State, Noon (Big Ten Network)

Two quarterbacks are still better than one ... well, hopefully in this case. Austin Dantin will get the start but Terrance Owens is also scheduled to see time against the Bucks. Meanwhile, yes, I do believe this is a game that Toledo can win. I actually said that on an OSU blog. And I remain alive.

CMU-Kentucky, Noon (ESPNU) blogger Edward Aschoff is calling this one a 27-14 UK victory. Boy, if it's that close, then good on CMU after their mixed-bag performance against South Carolina State. But the Chips to get back starting cornerback Lorenzo White, who served his one-game suspension for bike thievery.

Alabama State-EMU, 1 p.m.

Another week, another weak FCS team with which to pad stats. For ASU it's their first FBS game outside of Alabama, and they're super stoked about it. As for the EMU depth chart, there are not many changes.

Temple-Akron, 6 p.m. (ESPN3)

Well, you'd hope that Akron does better than 90 total yards against Ohio State. And that's why Temple is not looking ahead to their game against Penn State.

Stony Brook-Buffalo, 6 p.m. (Time Warner Cable Sports Net)

Serious FCS upset hopeful is serious business. Buffalo needs to win their home opener, and they're not looking past the Seawolves.

Morgan State-BGSU, 7 p.m. (BCSN/ESPN3)

Hey did you know the Falcons have done poorly at home (4-7 in the Clawson Era)? That's doubleplusungood. But Morgan State was thumped 42-3 in their opener against Towson, despite their uniforms having bright orange tops.

Ball State-South Florida, 7 p.m. (ESPN3)

Ball State blog Over the Pylon does some friendly reconnaissance with USF SBN blog Voodoo Five, causing some of the Bulls faithful to be nervous about this team on the rise. South Florida is no Indiana, but they are better than Notre Dame.

NIU-Kansas, 7 p.m. (Fox Sports Net)

This oughta be an easy win at a Big XII school, right? If nothing else it's a little cathartic to Jayhawks fans that they're a seven-point home underdog to perhaps the second-best MAC team.

Nicholls State-WMU, 7 p.m.

Bet that the Broncos are so looking forward to paying more than 44:33 in a full game this weekend. They oughta be fine with their weaker opponent on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Colonels beat down their inferior competition 42-0 but still made mistakes and will try to do better at WMU this time around.

Gardner-Webb-OHIO, 7 p.m.

We saw a Bobcat offense gain an identity in New Mexico, but with them back in the state it'll be fun to see how they use Phil Bates. GWU's hopes for their second MAC win in as many years (gak) rests in continued success on special teams.

Louisiana-Kent State, 7 p.m.

The Ragin' Cajuns, despite allowing 61 points, had some positives on defense, including three interceptions, one for a touchdown. Much like KSU, who gave up 48 points and still picked off four passes, they are still happy about their defense. And if it had to be said, coach Darrell Hazell really likes Roosevelt Nix, even moreso after the Tide game.
