EMU’s opponents went 5-6 this week. Just more than halfway through the season, one EMU opponent is currently ranked, and two others received votes.

Past 28 12 70% 13 7 66%
Upcoming 23 17 63% 9 5 64%

Let’s start with the MAC standings. In the West Division, Central Michigan is the first team definitely eliminated, because they’ve already played (and lost to) both Toledo and Northern Illinois. Western Michigan will also be eliminated with a loss this weekend, while EMU would be eliminated with either a loss or a win by Toledo. Ball State is very much in the hunt but would need some help to win, and Toledo and Northern Illinois each control their own fate, with the division potentially decided when Toledo travels to Northern Illinois on Wednesday, November 14. Both Toledo and Northern Illinois are now getting some poll votes.

No team from the Eastern Division has been eliminated yet, but several are quite close. With a loss or an Ohio win, Buffalo will be eliminated. With a loss of their own or a Kent State win, both Akron and Massachusetts would be eliminated. Bowling Green, Kent State, and Ohio all still control their own fates, while Miami would need to win out and have Bowling Green lost at least one game. The big game in the East Division will probably be Ohio at Kent State on Friday, November 23.
