MAC: East Schedules & Predictions

MAC Team Previews
EAST: Akron | Bowling Green | Buffalo
Kent State | Miami Univ. | Ohio

WEST: Ball State | Central Mich | Eastern Mich
Northern Illinois | Toledo | Western Michigan

MAC East

1. Buffalo
T2. Miami Univ.
T2. Ohio
4. Akron
T5. Bowling Green
T5. Kent State

– These predictions are different than the MAC Preseason Team Rankings, mainly because of the non-conference schedules and the conference slates. Who gets Toledo and Northern Illinois from the West, and who doesn’t? Timing matters, too, especially with all of the weeknight games.

– Where are the wins going to come for Bowling Green and Kent State? The Golden Flashes won’t be that awful under the new coaching staff, and the Falcons are going to be better, but good luck finding games they’ll be favorites in.

– Akron, Buffalo, Miami University and Buffalo. It’s going to be a wild run for the East title, with it all coming down to the final two weeks.
