    Heading into the end of the regular season, here's the breakdown...
    1) Kent State (11-2) -- Notes: The Flashes hold a tiebreaker over WMU. Barring two losses out of the last three, they will be the 1 seed. Games left: @ BG, vs. MIA, @ AKR
    2) Western Michigan (10-3) -- Notes: After a slow start, WMU has blown away the West. Games left: @ TOL, @ CMU, vs. BSU
    3) Akron (9-4) -- Notes: The Zips likely will lose one of the final three, putting them in the 3 seed. Games left: vs. BUF, @ OU, vs. KSU
    4) Ohio (8-5) -- Notes: Ohio can leapfrog Akron, but it will probably require winning out. The Bobcats are playing well enough to do that. Games left: @ MIA, vs. AKR, vs. BUF
    5) Miami (7-6) -- Notes: The RedHawks' season has been up and down. You better believe they want the 4 seed from Ohio, and the first-round bye that comes with it. a vs. OU, @ KSU, vs. BG,
    6) Bowling Green (6-7)
    7) Eastern Michigan (6-7)
    8 ) Central Michigan (6-7)
    9) Toledo (5-7)
