Roethlisberger Golden Arm Award

1. Keith Wenning (Ball State) - Holy 1,315 yards Batman. Wenning continues to be the most prolific passer in the conference bar none.
2. Matt Johnson (Bowling Green) - Welcome to the 1,000 yard club, Mr. Johnson. The Falcon's QB has 1k on the dot in passing yards completing a conference-high 64.9% of his passes.
3. Jordan Lynch (NIU) - Lynch doesn't wow you with passing yards (662 yards through three games,) but his 7 touchdowns are tied with Johnson for second-most in the MAC.
4. Kyle Pohl (Akron) - Time to show the man some respect. 873 yards and seven touchdowns from Akron's sophomore gunslinger. Pohl will be the reason the Zips surpass their win season from a year ago.
5. Tyler Tettleton (Ohio) - Tettleton threw three first-half touchdowns against FCS foe Austin Peay this Saturday. His season totals climb to 858 yards and six touchdowns.

Tait Trophy

1. David Fluellen (Toledo) - Fluellen has 88 yards more than the second leading rusher in the conference. Toledo's top back has amassed 497 yards and four touchdowns, well over 100 ypg.
2. Travis Greene (Bowling Green) - Another big game from Greene boosts him back to No. 2. Greene is second in the MAC in rushing with 409 yards.
3. Horactio Banks (Ball State) - Banks added another touchdown this weekend giving him five on the season. Still leading the MAC in that category.
4. Saylor Lavali (Central Michigan) - Lavali has been successful in Zurlon Tipton's stead. Central's back has 354 yards and three scores on the year.
5. Cameron Stingily (Northern Illinois) - Stingily has 238 yards and three touchdowns through three games with Northern. That slates him at eighth in the conference in rushing. His quarterback is third.

Moss-Jennings Trophy

1. Alex Neutz (Buffalo) - A bye week won't dethrone Neutz at the top spot. 25 receptions for 338 yards and three scores on the season. Buffalo takes on UConn this weekend.
2. Willie Snead (Ball State) - Snead took over the top spot in receiving yards in the MAC after Week 4 with a total of 480 yards on the year.
3. Titus Davis (Central Michigan) - Davis is not far behind Snead with 404 receiving yards on the season. Davis also has three TDs so far this season.
4. Corey Davis (Western Michigan) - Davis has been a steady contributor in Western's offensive passing game with 23 receptions for 335 yards on the year.
5. Bernard Reedy (Toledo) - Reedy has hauled in 26 passes through four games averaging 11.2 yards per catch. His 291 yards is good for seventh best in the MAC.

Fisher Award

1. Tyler Loos (Northern Illinois) - Jordan Lynch has only been sacked twice and is third in the conference in rushing. (see No. 3.)
2. Zac Kerin (Toledo) - Kerin is the keystone to an offensive line that has allowed David Fluellen to run away with the rushing title through four weeks.
3. Jared Volk (Northern Illinois) - Add on that Stingily is eighth in the conference, NIU has two rushers in the Top 10. The Huskies' line is legit.
4. Dominic Flewellyn (Bowling Green) - Yeah, Travis Greene had another big week, but six sacks on Matt Johnson is credited to Flewellyn and the O-line
5. Anthony Dima (Massachusetts) - Dima can keep holding onto this spot with UMass only giving up three sacks still on the year.

Bronze Babin

1. Perez Ford (Northern Illinois) - Tied at the top of the conference with four sacks plus an average of two tackles for loss per game, Ford has made one of the biggest jumps up any list so far this season.
2. Pat O'Conner (Eastern Michigan) - Eastern's sophomore D-Tackle is tied with Ford for sacks, averaging one per game through four weeks of play.
3. Roosevelt Nix (Kent State) - Nix had another big week increasing his tackles for loss to a total of six on the season.
4. Nathan Ollie (Ball State) - For a defensive end, Ollie has amassed 23 tackles on the year so far adding two sacks and two tackles for loss.
5. Nico Caponi (Akron) - Caponi still pushing strong with three sacks on the season, one off the conference lead.

Lambert Award

1. Khalil Mack (Buffalo) - The bye week doesn't remove him from No. 1. Not much seems like it will.
2. Justin Cherocci (Central Michigan) - Cherocci took over the conference lead in tackles with 46 on the year.
3. Chase Murdock (Toledo) - Murdock jumps up the list with three sacks on the year averaging 11 tackles per game
4. Kent Kern (Miami) - Kern had the week off as well, which kept his averages high. His 11.3 tackles per game is second best in the MAC.
5. Ben Russell (Ohio) - This Bobcat linebacker averages nine per game with two sacks on the year.

Bayless Award

1. Jimmie Ward (Northern Illinois) - Ward averages ten tackles per game with the Huskies and has two interceptions on the season.
2. Justin March (Akron) - The MAC's leader in interceptions with three. One of which, he has brought back for six.
3. Dayonne Nunley (Miami) - Averaging eight tackles per game, Nunley leads the conference with 7 passes defended.
4. Junior Sylvestre (Toledo) - Sylvestre leads all MAC defensive backs with 10.8 tackles per game.
5. Najja Johnson (Buffalo) - Johnson has five passes defended and an interception through three games with the Bulls this season.

Zinc Zastudil

1. Jeremiah Detmer (Toledo) - He's still only missed one kick this season and his eight field goals made are best in the conference.
2. Zac Murphy (Miami) - Punt. Just punt away. (To the tune of Capital Cities "Love Away.")
3. Matt Sims (Northern Illinois) - Sims leads the conference in scoring, averaging 11.3 points per game. That's more than Miami and UMass are averaging per game as a team this season.
4. Bernard Reedy (Toledo) - Reedy is second in the MAC behind his running back Fluellen in all purpose yards. 267 of his 572 all purpose yards have come from special teams returns.
5. Scott Secor (Ball State) - Secor is second to Sims in scoring with 9.2 points per game with the Cardinals. He is also 6 of 10 on field goal attempts this season.
