Championship Game

Toledo over Buffalo


Buffalo once again makes it to the championship game, this time falling short against Toledo. Toledo can make a solid case for a top 25 team. May be the best MAC team in several years. Probably 3rd best Group of 5 team after Boise St and UCF. Overall it looks to be a down year for the MAC. Not a lot of depth this year. A few of the better programs look to have rebuilding years.

No other team outside of Toledo makes a good case for Top 25 contention. 5 teams are eligible for bowls, although it’s likely 1 could end up on the outside looking in.
