Hustle Belt MAC Pick'em - Week 13: It's Rivalry Week!

With the season winding down and the snow picking up, we turn our heads to Rivalry Week in the Pick'em. Anything can happen when bad blood enters the mix.

Another "gotta be quick" post here.  Sorry folks.

Only one perfect week, but no detailed picks means that they tied for the win.  So congrats Idk for that.  Also, congrats to myself, ColinApocalypse, and DougieNix on co-winning this week by predicting my Broncos would shut down the EMU Eagles.  Nobody had Buffalo putting up a fifty-spot, so nobody got the high.

Here's the full breakdown from Week 12.

Now, on to this week and all its glory.  3 points for detailed picks

Tuesday, November 18th

UMass @ Akron - Remember when Akron was really good?  Now they suck.  UMass and Tajae Sharpe destroy the Zips.

NIU @ Ohio - I really want Ohio to win this game, but I doubt it happens.  On second though, scratch that.  Go Huskies.  Keep Ohio out of a bowl game.  Besides, a NIU loss does nothing if WMU still loses to the Huskies next week.

Wednesday, November 19th

Kent State @ Buffalo - And your first team to 10 losses is Kent State!  Thanks for playing.  In fact, the Golden Flashes could very well be the only team in the MAC to hit the 10 loss mark this year.  Only EMU can join them, and they get Ball State.  Hmmm......

Bowling Green @ Toledo - Like last week's NIU vs Toledo game, I have to go with my rooting interest here.  And it makes sense.  Knapke has BG firing on most cylinders and Toledo might play their wide-receiver at QB.  It's a rivalry game, so anything can happen.  However, due to (1) the MAC West's pure dominance over the East this year and (2) the fact that BG hasn't won the I-75 Trophy in God knows how long, I'm not so certain about this pick.  Sticking with it and praying.

Saturday, November 22nd

Eastern Michigan @ Ball State - Can't do it.  I just can't.  EMU is bad.  Jack Milas tears the Eagles to shreds, and EMU loses next week to Toledo to become the 2nd (and last) MAC team to 10 losses.

Western Michigan @ Central Michigan -

FIGHT ON, FIGHT ON FOR WESTERN
TAKE THE BALL, MAKE THE SCORE, WIN THE GAME
ONWARD FOR THE BROWN AND GOLD
PUSH 'EM BACK, PUSH'EM BACK, BRING US FAME

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT

FIGHT ON, FIGHT ON FOR WESTERN
OVER ONE, OVER ALL, WE WILL REIGN
FIGHT BRONCOS FIGHT, FIGHT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
WESTERN WIN THIS GAME!

High: BG
Low: EMU
