Comments (...) | Add Comments

In its Aug. 16 college football preview, Sports Illustrated predicts Northern Illinois to win the Mid-American Conference West division and play in the Dec. 3 MAC Championship game at Ford Field in Detroit. But SI has MAC East winner, Temple, beating the Huskies in the conference title game.

SI picks the Huskies to go 9-3 for the 2010 season, including a 7-1 conference record. That means SI thinks the Huskies will pull off an upset over one of the three teams – Iowa State, Illinois or Minnesota – NIU plays from automatic-qualifying Bowl Championship Series conferences.

Following are SI's predictions for the MAC.


Team Record (Conference)

1. Temple 9-3 (7-1)

2. Ohio 8-4 (6-2)

3. Kent State 7-5 (5-3)

4. Bowling Green 4-8 (4-4)

5. Akron 3-9 (2-6)

6. Buffalo 3-9 (2-6)

7. Miami (Ohio) 2-10 (2-6)


Team Record (Conference)

1. Northern Illinois 9-3 (7-1)

2. Central Michigan 6-6 (5-3)

3. Toledo 5-7 (5-3)

4. Western Michigan 4-4 (5-7)

5. Ball State 5-7 (3-5)

6. Eastern Michigan 0-12 (0-8)
