After not doing picks at all last year, while on semi-paternity leave, I'm back.
Akron over Howard
Central Michigan over Chattanooga
NIU over Presbyterian
Bowling Green over Western Kentucky
BC over UMass - I think this will be respectable, but there's a long road from 1-11 to beating BC.
Ball State over Colgate
Buffalo over Duquesne - I can't believe ESPN Gameday isn't at this game
Ohio over Kent State -
Marshall over Miami (Ohio) - One of these teams could go undefeated. The other could go winless.
Purdue over Western Michigan - Not a good year shaping up for the directional Michigans
Toledo over New Hampshire - I have no idea why any FBS team would schedule UNH given the Wildcats history of upsets. But I think Toledo is good enough to dodge this bullett.
Top 25 vs. Top 25 Games
South Carolina over Texas A&M
Georgia over Clemson
Season record: 0-0
Last week's record: 0-0
MAC Knockout pool
This season media members Dan Malone, Bob McGovern, Mark Chiarelli, Steve Hewitt and I are doing a MAC Survivor Pool over Twitter (#MACSurvivor). Each week we'll pick one MAC team to win. Once someone has picked a team once, they can't use them again the rest of the season. Once a team you pick loses, you're out.
I'm taking Eastern Michigan over Morgan State. There are very few good times to pick Eastern Michigan to win ever. Morgan State was 5-7 in the FCS last year. So if the Eagles are going to win. This figures to be the time. Like NIU, Buffalo and Akron to all win handily, but I wanted to save them for later.
Malone - Buffalo over Duquense
McGovern - NIU over Presbyterian
Hewitt - Akron over Howard
Chiarelli - Norhern Illinois over Presbyterian
