Hustle Belt MAC Pick'em - Week 13: The regular season is almost over!

With just one week left in the regular season, it's getting down to crunch time. Who can take advantage and make some moves before the post-season?

The past three months have been fun.  We've seen upsets, heartbreaks, and NIU continue to control the MAC (outside of CMU).  Now?  It's time to close the book on another MAC season.

Only one person hit every game last week, so a big congrats out to TheBeanScreen

Full breakdown here.  I'll get cumulative totals done next week in time for the post-season.

Now, on to this week's games!

Tuesday, November 24th

Bowling Green @ Ball State - BGSU gets some revenge on the Cardinals for last year's fiasco and puts up 50.  Lembo gets fired after the game in a move that shocks us all.

Ohio @ Northern Illinois - If Ohio wins, then the door is WIDE open for Toledo to take the MAC West crown.  However, nobody has beaten NIU in November since Dan Lefevor did it in 2009.  Not even Solich can pull this one off.

Friday, November 27th

Western Michigan @ Toledo - I have many STRONG words on the state of this WMU program.  Words that probably shouldn't be written out.  tl;dr - they underperform when it matters most and that won't ever change.  Toledo wins and is unbeaten against the Michigan MAC teams for a 6th straight year (yeah, they haven't lost to CMU/WMU/EMU since 2009 either)

Kent State @ Akron - THE ZIPS ARE BOWL ELIGIBLE!  And they're probably going to have a better record than WMU.  Crazy

Eastern Michigan @ Central Michigan - STOP IT, STOP IT, (the Eagles) ARE ALREADY DEAD

UMass @ Buffalo -

"Turn out the lights,
the party's over.
They say that all
good things must end.
Turn out the lights, 
the party's over.
Goodbye to UMass,
we'll never see you again."

High Team: Bowling Green
Low Team: Kent State
