Can Toledo actually get over the hump and win the MAC?  Crazy that for as good as they've been (probably the most consistent MAC program over the past decade) they haven't won a conference title in 13 years.

Ha. They might not have won a Mac Ccg over that time frame, but they haven't lost one either.

Well Buffalo knocked off Bowling Green, and Miami upset Akron.

Akron had previously been tied for first place with Ohio. Luckily for the Zips, Ohio gets Toledo tonight and then Ohio and Akron play each other next week.

Central won the Michigan Mac Trophy by beating Eastern tonight.






Ohio absolutely kicked the crap out of Toledo.

And Western absolutely kicked the crap out of Kent.


---------------------------

So now the Mac West race is wide open. There could still be a three way tie for first place between Toledo, Western, and the N Illinois-Central winner.

If it's a three way tie between Western, Toledo and N Illinios then Western would obviously win the tie breaker because they'd have to beat both of those teams down the stretch in order to make it happen.

If it's Toledo, Western and Central, then you'd have the dreaded rock paper scissors scenario where they all went 1-1 against each other.

Or there could be two way ties between any combination of those teams. Or any of the four could win it outright. 

-------------------------

The East is still kind of a mess as well.

Next week's Ohio @ Akron winner will probably represent the East, but if Akron beats Ohio and both teams lose the following week then there could still be a three way tie between those two and Miami. Once again, there'd be the rock paper scissors scenario.  





We might have to drag Medina in here, and have him break down all of the scenarios and tie breakers for us.  :57:

In the Mac's only Divisional game that doesn't involve a team from either Michigan or Ohio, Northern Illinois edged Ball State 63-17, winning the Bronze Stalk Trophy for the ninth year in a row.



Appy State beat Georgia Southern.

N Carolina upset Pitt.

Akron edges Ohio.

So they become Bowl eligible.

Ohio and Akron are tied atop the Mac East. 

Ohio has to play @Buffalo, while Akron gets to host Kent.

There are four possible scenarios:

1. Both teams win.
-Akron goes to the Mac Ccg due to H-H.

2. Akron wins and Ohio loses.
-Akron wins the Mac East outright.

3. Ohio wins and Akron loses.
-Ohio wins the Mac East outright.

4. Both teams lose.
-Akron goes to the Mac Ccg due to H-H.
