There are no more undefeated teams in MAC play.
Central Michigan and Ball State, which both had been 4-0, both lost on the road Saturday.
Central was beaten badly by Ohio, the most surprising team in the league. The Bobcats beat CMU 71-51 and are now 13-3, 4-1 in the MAC. A year ago they were 4-14, the same record at Kent State. I’ll try to do a separate post later on what has created the turnaround.
Central Michigan is 9-7, 4-1 in the MAC.
Ball State, which beat KSU badly in Muncie Wednesday, lost to Buffalo 53-43 at Buffalo. The Cardinals are now 4-1 in the MAC, 8-8 overall. Buffalo, which was the preseason pick to win the MAC East, is 9-7, 2-3.
Other Saturday scores:
Akron (14-2, 4-1) 65, Miami (3-13, 0-5) 47, at Miami.
Eastern Michigan (8-7, 1-3) 64, Bowling Green (8-8, 1-4) 52, at Eastern Michigan.
Toledo (10-6, 3-2) 65, Western Michigan (10-6, 3-2) 46, at Western Michigan.
Kent State (3-13, 1-4), which lost at Northern Illinois (6-8, 2-2), has a midweek bye and plays Western Michigan at home Saturday.
