The media picked Akron to finish third in the MAC East, behind Buffalo and Temple.
Central Michigan was the favorite in the West. Following Akron in the East are Ohio, Bowling Green, Kent State and Miami.
I think the media did a good job in ranking the East. Isn't it funny how the power balance has completely shifted? Who could have imagined Buffalo and Temple being favorites, while Miami and Bowling Green sitting at the bottom of the division?
