MAC Football Media Day: UMass Picked To Finish 7th In MAC East

Massachusetts, to no ones surprise, has been picked to finish last in the MAC East.

MAC East

1. Ohio 119 – (17 first place votes)
2. Bowling Green 91
3. Miami 84
4. Kent State 76
5. Buffalo 52
6. Akron 31
7. UMass 23

I don’t have intimate knowledge of how the MAC’s voting process goes. However, if there were 17 voters, it appears that UMass was not placed last by all voters.

Here is how the west division looks:

MAC West

1. Toledo 87 – (7 first place votes)
2. Northern Illinois 83  -(5)
3. Western Michigan 79 – (4)
4. Ball State 42
5. Eastern Michigan 34
6. Central Michigan 32 – (1)

It is interesting that Central Michigan finished in last overall yet received one first place vote.
