MAC Football Power Rankings: Ball State Moved Up, Central Michigan Did Not

You're going to hate us, if you haven't already.

Still Down Low

13. Kent State Golden Flashes (LW: 13)

12. Eastern Michigan Eagles (LW: 12)

11. Buffalo Bulls (LW: 9)

10. Miami RedHawks (LW: 10)

The Eagles had an impressive game against Northern Illinois, even though it ended in a loss. The 'Hawks held Kent State to just three points while Kent State held Miami to 10. But they're too low to make a big leap at this time. Still a fun group to watch.

Lotsa Shuffles

9. UMass Minutemen (LW: 11)

8. Ohio Bobcats (LW: 6)

7. Central Michigan Chippewas (LW: 7)

6. Akron Zips (LW: t3)

5. Ball State Cardinals (LW: 8)

It's weird, because CMU did just beat Buffalo while Akron again to Ball State. I'm a little confused about how this one averaged out, but that's just me. I had them at four. And the Zips fell fairly hard while Ball State is making a huge leap. It's been amazing how the defense started to make some plays at the same time Milas got the starting job. I like it when good things come in two's.

*cough cough*

4. Western Michigan Broncos (LW: t3)

3. Bowling Green Falcons (LW: 5)

2. Northern Illinois Huskies (LW: 2)

1. Toledo Rockets (LW: 1)

I have Toledo at number one. I know one blogger on here does not, but we'll talk about that on another day. But I feel like maybe we've had Toledo up there for so long and now it's a "number one until they lose" sort of deal. But really, you can argue most of these schools can be number one, all except for Bowling Green, who we have ahead of Western Michigan. Maybe I'm just crazy. I'm definitely crazy.
