MAC West rankings: Toledo in control

Central Michigan moves up to 3rd place


Toledo is 5-0 in the MAC and has control of the MAC West Division.


There is still not a ton of movement in the Mid-American Conference West division rankings. As conference play continues there is a pretty defined hierarchy right now. Here is how the MAC West stacks up:

1) Toledo (Last week: 1) – The Rockets won a MAC West showdown against Northern Illinois. The 27-17 win gave Toledo control of the MAC West with three games left. The Rockets are at MAC East leader Ohio on Wednesday.

6) Ball State (Last week: 6) – The Cardinals got blown out by Eastern Michigan last week in a battle of last-place teams. Ball State will go to Northern Illinois on Thursday.
