MAC West

1. Northern Illinois
2. Toledo
3. Central Michigan
4. Western Michigan
5. Ball State
6. Eastern Michigan

– How much do these match up with the MAC Preseason Team Rankings?They’re not far off, but it should be a dogfight up top with Northern Illinois, Toledo and Western Michigan battling it out, and Central Michigan hanging around the mix.

– Really, how good is Ball State going to be with RB James Gilbert and QB Riley Neal back? They’ll be the division’s X factor.

– Eastern Michigan came so, so close in so many games last season. It’ll be a tougher run thanks to a tougher schedule. It gets some of the biggest West games at home. Beat Toledo and Northern Illinois, and this all flips.
