Week 6 MAC Pick ‘Em: Last week got messy.

I normally keep a good eye on things during the football seasons, but this year has been very busy for me personally. I went out of town last week while most MAC teams were playing in their respective conference openers. The only thing I knew anything about before getting on the first plane back home was the Urban Meyer story, headlines from the SEC, and EMU lost close to NIU after a very long lightning delay. I sorta remember seeing some scores on Saturday when I was at a wedding, but I don’t know what day of the week it was when I found out what the CMU-Miami final score was.

I also know that I felt smart getting my early bets in on Tuesday before I got to a state that didn’t allow me to hit the mobile sportsbooks, but felt like a total dumbass by 11 AM local time to see how wrong I was on everything already.

WEEK 5 RESULTS & LEADERBOARD

RESULTS

One game that 100% of the pool tripped up on, and it was when we were all counting out the Ball State Cardinals. Rightfully so, this team hadn’t beaten an FBS team yet and Army’s had a strong early-season offensively. To be positive, this is a big win for Ball State because of how good Army is. But man, way to wait until October for your second win.

CMU was favored over Miami tripped up a lot of us too, and people were pretty split on what to do with Ohio at Akron. I know I picked Akron here; congrats to Ohio and Tim Albin for their first wins.

This pool didn’t do too hot over the weekend as most of us went 4-3 or 3-4 on our game picks. Some did better, some were worse. But nobody came out clean this week.

Most rush yards: Was De’Montre Tuggle with 201 rushing yards. He wasn’t one of the RBs listed on last week’s form, so if you selected OTHER, then congrats on the 10 points.

Over/Under 47.5 pts. scored by Ohio + BGSU: This one went down to the wire, but these two teams scored a combined 54 points, so the OVERs have it. Cheers to 15 points.

Teams check off here are your predicted winners. Unchecked teams are picked to lose. 10 points for getting the game’s winners right, -5 points for getting the games winners wrong. Simple, eh?

My picked winners:

  • Akron @ BGSU
  • CMU @ Ohio
  • EMU vs. Miami
  • Kent State vs. Buffalo
  • NIU @ Toledo
  • WMU vs. Ball State

DOUBLE OR TRIPLE?

The three games that I selected (I don’t feel very confident picking anything these days) for this are:

  • WMU vs. Ball State
  • Kent State vs. Buffalo
  • CMU @ Ohio

MOST PASS YARDS?

Ben Bryant currently leads the MAC in passing yards per attempt with 9.1, so I’m gonna go with the home side that wants to respond after last week’s loss.

COMBINED OVER/UNDER FOR NIU+BUFFALO: 58.5

OVER. No logic and going strictly with my stupid gut. Worked last week.
