BroncoBlitz picks MACsketball: Week 8

After a week slated full of disagreement among the staff, there's finally been a bit of movement in the standings. Miami (OH) pulled out a pair of victories, EMU won a big in-state game against Oakland in overtime, and Toledo kept up its winning ways with a couple of close ones against Arkansas State and Cleveland State.
Following three tough road games against Northwestern, Missouri, and Drake, Western Michigan (6-5) picked up a much needed home win against a railing Prairie View A&M squad on Saturday. The Broncos get a full week of rest heading into the holidays before they host Siena Heights, and then begin conference play. Below are the current standings:
1) Brian Persky Overall: 102-33, MAC: 82-21, Wild Card: 11-10, WMU: 9-2
2) David James Overall: 99-36, MAC: 81-22, Wild Card: 11-10, WMU: 7-4
3) D.J. Duckett Overall: 97-38, MAC: 77-26, Wild Card: 13-8, WMU: 7-4
