T-C-U BETTER BELIEVE IT

#3 TCU took on #5 LSU this weekend and let everyone know that the Horned Frogs are legit. It was a defensive struggle but TCU was able to come out on top 13-10.

THE BUC STOPS HERE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't give Christian Skaggs any break Sunday, sacking the QB 6 times. The offense did their part behind QB Taylor Heiden and rookie RB DeNorris Jackson and came away with a 28-21 win.

DREAM KILLERS?

A top 15 matchup between the #11 Toledo Rockets and #15 Florida Gators ended in heartbreak for the Rockets. Florida managed to pull out the 25-22 win on the road. Anyone doubting either team was put on notice.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

The Green Bay Packers have raced to a 5-0 start after beating the 2-2 Seattle Seahawks. This game was very banner worthy which is why it is on here. I wonder if anyone can "catch" the Green Bay Packers, or maybe "intercept" them? No no, definitely catch.

    [2020] MAC Power Rankings after Week 3

    Recommended Posts

    A much better showing for the MAC this week, as everybody's favorite conference went 4-3 in out of conference play.  Did Best!Miami proving they are Better!Miami than Other!Miami(FL) sway the voters this time around?  What about Kent State and Bowling Green picking up their first wins of the season? To the chart!

    • Number of voters: 6
    • 12 points for first, 11 for second, etc.

     

    It turns out that indeed Best!Miami's performance in Florida did get them to the top of the polls, although there isn't much separation between them, Western Michigan, and Toledo. 

    The biggest fall is Buffalo's who continues to have a Bobcat problem.  The Bulls will be kicking themselves if this Ohio loss costs them the MAC Championship game like it did last year.

    You can start to see a divide between the top and bottom halves of the chart, but it's still early and conference play has yet to truly begin. Also, a pair of MAC teams have YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE visibility games against ranked opponents; Ohio hosts #11 SMU while Ball State travels to #19 Virginia.  Good luck, gentlemen!

     

    Did You Know? This is the first poll in the history of this iteration of MAC Power Rankings that doesn't have a first-place Toledo vote.

     

    "If it's not MAC, it's wack!"

    Buffalo is 2-1, maybe that's why?  

    I think one of the voters must've put buffalo in first and thats what gave them the edge...wish more people would vote so that didn't happen but....shit happens lol
