Bilo's College Football PASS/FAIL Reports Week 5: MAC
PASS: Ohio, Eastern Michigan, Northern Illinois, Akron, Western Michigan
The most impressive job this week was from Eastern Michigan, who is now just 2 wins away from becoming bowl eligible. They held off Bowling Green in MAC play for a 28-25 win, and Chris Creighton is one of my early candidates for coach of the year.
Northern Illinois also picks up a meaningful passing grade this week, as they finally picked up win number one on the season over Ball State, 31-24.
Western Michigan was fully dominant over Central Michigan in a 49-10 win, and ranks number 7 in this week’s PRS rankings.
FAIL: Toledo, Buffalo, Miami (Ohio), Bowling Green, Ball State, Kent State, Central Michigan
Toledo could not play defense all night in a horrifying 55-53 loss to BYU on the road. It was one of the single worst defensive performances I have ever seen.
Miami remains winless, and Bowling Green remains clueless under Mike Jinks. Ball State had a huge shot at a win, and yet fell to winless NIU. Kent State continues to fall to the bottom ten nationally, while Central Michigan has shown none of the energy they had against Oklahoma State, falling to WMU 49-10.
