EMU wins on the road with an exciting win vs. Long Beach State.

I assume BSU and EMU are the top two teams in the MAC to date. I believe they open the MAC season.

I'd say Buffalo and Ball State are the top two. Eastern has only played two games against teams that are ranked better than 237 in KenPom. They've got one good win but also have one terrible loss.

Dear OUVan,
Rankings at this point are very subjective. Both Ball State and Buffalo have some "bad" losses, as well. Let's see how things play out in the next couple of weeks.

There are no top teams in the MAC yet. The first two months are just a sorting out for most teams, trying to figure out rotations, team chemistry, etc. Teams change quickly this time of year even game to game. Everyone is tied at 0-0 until January. The games so far don’t really mean much, especially because there is only one true quality win conference wide.

Shocker, Miami beats down NAIA Rio Grande to ensure a plus .500 record in non-conference play. Our domination of SE Ohio begins!

Sorry but remind me what Buffalo's bad loss was?

My guess is they think South Dakota State, but that is an RPI Top 100 team

Dear BullBoy,
That's the one. I don't know where South Dakota State is ranked today, but they are 9-5 record wise.
