Hustle Belt’s MAC Football Power Rankings Week One

The boat rows to number one in 2016's first set of power rankings

Week one is in the books, and let's just say it didn't go so well for the MAC East. Akron did well for itself amidst the chaos, while NIU fans may not like where their Huskies sit after the loss to Wyoming.

Rank Team Points (first place votes) Notes from Week One
1 WMU 15 (9) The hype train hasn't missed a beat. The Broncos dominated time of possession and never turned the ball over against Northwestern on their way to 1-0
2 Toledo 22 (3) Toledo continues to dominate Arkansas State. This time it was a 31-10 stomping that was never all that close. Logan Woodside was sensational
3 CMU 46
4 Akron 62
5 Ball State 64
6 EMU 78
7 NIU 90 NIU made fans stay up extremely late to see the final of their opener against Wyoming. Unfortunately it didn't go as planned as the Cowboys won in double overtime, setting the winners of six straight MAC West titles back to start the season.
8 Ohio 99
9 BGSU 102
10 Miami 104
11 Kent State 114
12 Buffalo 140
