WMU rowing toward the top
WMU pulled off one hell of a second-year surge under P.J. Fleck, and only road trips to NIU and Toledo prevent the Broncos from being the outright MAC favorite this fall. Fleck's building something special in Kalamazoo.

Yep, WMU over NIU in the MAC
NIU has won five consecutive MAC West titles, but this could be the Huskies' toughest title defense yet. Meanwhile, the East could be a bloodbath.

If not now, then when for Toledo?
Toledo is loaded with play-makers but faces serious question marks on the offensive line; can the Rockets overcome line issues and finally win a division title?

NIU's still the MAC king
Rod Carey and Northern Illinois fielded their worst team since 2009 and still won their fifth straight MAC West title; what happens now that the Huskies are far more experienced?

Watch some CMU games this year!
CMU head coach Dan Enos left at almost the worst possible time, but John Bonamego takes over an enthusiastic staff and a two-deep littered with play-makers; now we'll see if he can lead them.

Ball State looks for a bounceback
Ball State's offensive output slowed down dramatically because of inexperience at quarterback, and the defense was too much of a pushover to make up the difference; the former will change in 2015, but the latter might still hold the Cardinals back.

Bowling Green brings MACtion back
Bowling Green wasn't nearly as good as its record in 2014, but the Falcons boast a world of experience on offense and could single-handedly bring MACtion back this fall.

Miami slowly rebuilds
Miami was better than you thought last year, but turnover on offense will probably prevent the Redhawks from taking a second straight step forward under Chuck Martin.

Akron's ready to bowl
As another wave of transfers becomes eligible and Terry Bowden's rebuilding efforts bear more fruit, Akron should be able to maneuver an easy MAC slate and reach bowl eligibility for the first time in 10 years.

Ohio tries to find itself
Ohio had to build a new identity from scratch, and the results were mixed. But Frank Solich's Bobcats will be more experienced and athletic, ready to take their first step forward in four years.

Kent State looks for some breaks
Kent State was dealt an impossible hand in 2014, but a team that improved late in the year returns quite a bit of maturity and experience this fall.

Buffalo wins the offseason
New coach Lance Leipold might lose as many games this year as he did in eight years at Wisconsin-Whitewater, but with an easy schedule and experience on offense, he should make Buffalo bowl eligible in his first attempt.

UMass' offense could be deadly
The UMass defense is a mess, but the Minutemen's offense could be excellent -- Blake Frohnapfel to Tajae Sharpe is a deadly connection -- and if they get breaks they didn't get in 2014, they could threaten to reach six wins.

EMU looks for sunshine in the Factory
Eastern Michigan coach Chris Creighton is winning offseasons and has an exciting young QB, but his Eagles still have another year or two of building to end a nearly three-decade bowl-less streak.
