Two months down, one to go before big point time. Let's get to it.
Last week was on the small side. Four games meant only 10 points were up for grabs, so a lot of people did well. Three people hit the high-low perfecta, so your winners are: Josh G, Jimhome, and Thomasmcelgunn.
We also have the updated cumulative totals through the first two months. It's a tight one, but consistent play has me at the top. Check it out here
Now, ON TO THE PICKS!
Tuesday, November 3rd
Northern Illinois @ Toledo - Hooooooo boy. What a way to start November with what has been the biggest MAC West game over the last five seasons. Toledo finally seems to have everything coming together. They are undefeated, they have a powerful defense, and they have a pretty solid offense that no longer is centered around how great Kareem Hunt is. The Huskies appear to be back on track towards winning their sixth straight MAC West title, but I think this is the year Toledo finally gets over the hump.
Wednesday, November 4th
Ohio @ Bowling Green - *yawn* Another year, another slate of MAC East games that BG completely rolls through. Bring on the MAC West and let's see what these Falcons are made of.
Thursday, November 5th
Ball State @ Western Michigan - This should be a good game. The Cardinals always seem to play the Broncos close, but I think WMU gets bowl eligible before hitting a brutal three-game stretch to close the season.
Buffalo @ Kent State - Does Buffalo "forget" how to get to Dix Stadium this year to pay back the Golden Flashes for not listening to emergency directions? Methinks not, but I like Kent State to use a bye week to get a defensive scheme to stymie the Bull offense.
Saturday, November 7th
Akron @ UMass - This would be the ultimate nut kick if the Zips can get the win. UMass, once a dark horse for the MAC East crown, would lose to Akron, the cellar dweller of the conference when the Minutemen entered. Everyone continues to pile on the Minutemen's parade.
Eastern Michigan @ Miami - Another game I went back and forth on, but I'm going to blindly pick the RedHawks and pray that they can get the home win.
