2015 Hustle Belt MAC Pick'em - Week 4: Final weekend of non-conference play is upon us

New, 19 comments

After some exciting play to begin the season, non-conference play ends with a bang with three schools facing top 10 opponents on the road. Can any pull the ultimate upset?

Sorry this is late, again.  Busy week at the office.

Anyways, last week saw a three-way tie for first between people who all had perfect weeks.  Since they all missed the high and low teams, your winners are:  jackgray64, WrightR10, and johnson565.  Congrats.  One note:  Huskiemindy would've won had they not picked WMU to lose to Murray State (they got all other games right and nailed Akron as one of the high teams).  SUCKS TO SUCK (jk, kinda)

Full breakdown here

Anyways, let's get onto this weeks picks!

Saturday, September 26th

Central Michigan @ #2 Michigan State - Man, I feel bad for James Jimenez.  You write one piece about the awful side of the internet, and the awful side comes RIGHT FOR YOUR HEAD.  That's not right.  Yes, the play was bad, but no football player should receive death threats for it, especially in college where these guys don't even get paid.  LEAVE THE PLAYERS ALONE.  All of them (unless you're supporting them).

Bowling Green @ Purdue - Example:  MATT JOHNSON IS THE GREATEST FANTASY QUARTERBACK EVER AND I'M SO HAPPY I HAVE HIM!  I'd hurt him with kindness if I could.  HERE, EAT ALL THE CHIPOTLE, MATTY J.

Northern Illinois @ Boston College - Oh, NIU.  Why do you make it so hard to like you?

Ohio @ Minnesota

UMass @ #6 Notre Dame - DID I MENTION I ALSO GOT FROH IN A TRADE?  HAHAHAHA.  This fantasy thing ain't so hard.  Oh, and ND gonna roll that UMass defense.

Marshall @ Kent State - On a scale of 1 to #MACtion, Kent State's offense scores a -342.  It's that bad.

Miami @ Western Kentucky - On a scale of 1 to #MACtion, Miami's defense just conceded another score.  You didn't even notice because it's that often.

Nevada @ Buffalo - Buffalo is anti-Bowling Green.  Ground and pound team that doesn't have an offense yet, but has a suffocating defense.  Man, that game is gonna be fun.

Western Michigan @ #1 Ohio State - Damnit NIU.  Why'd you have to awake the bear?  WMU is gonna get slaughtered because Ohio State won't be in a good mood on Saturday after last week's hijinks.

Army @ Eastern Michigan - Let us pray

/bows head

Please, don't let me lose this game in the Survivor Pool.  I've burned all my other bottom feeders and could really use this one before conference play.  Then I can bust out the NIU's and BG's.

Amen.

Akron @ Louisiana-Lafayette - Never forget

Link vs King Bowdongo

Arkansas State @ Toledo - Kareem Hunt better play.  Or else I'm doomed.  The Rockets, however, are legit on defense.  They'll be Top 25 after this one.

Ball State @ #17 Northwestern - Ryan Field is beautiful.  Enjoy the trip Cardinal fans.  The city is worth it.  The game won't be.

High Team: Uhhh........Bowling Green, I guess
Low Team: Ohio
