MAC East Schedules & Predictions

MAC Team Previews, 5 Things To Know
East Akron | Bowling Green | Buffalo
Kent State | Miami Univ. | Ohio
West Ball State | Central Michigan | Eastern Michigan
Northern Illinois | Toledo | Western Michigan

MAC East Predicted Finish

T1. Ohio
T2. Buffalo
T2. Miami Univ.
T4. Akron
T4. Bowling Green
T4. Kent State

– Unlike the MAC Preseason Team Rankings – based on how good the teams are – these are all about trying to predict where everyone will finish. The East isn’t as far behind the West as it’s been in recent seasons, but it’s still a big deal to miss Toledo – Akron, Miami and Ohio don’t play the Rockets. Not playing Northern Illinois matters – Bowling Green, Buffalo and Kent State won’t have to deal with the defending champs.

– Ohio going to Buffalo on October 5th is one of the biggest keys to the East season – maybe. The Bobcats could lose and still be fine. It’ll be a scramble by the other four teams to rise up and make some noise in the race, with Miami hosting UB on September 28th, but having to go to Ohio in early November.

– Three East teams were bowl eligible, but only two went to a post-season game. Buffalo and Ohio went bowling, but Miami didn’t get the call at 6-6. Expect those three to be the bowl eligible East teams again.
