MAC preseason predictions for each game: 2022 preview – College Football News | Hot Mobile Press

One thing is for sure – someone will come out of nowhere and become a player.

Northern Illinois went from worst to first last season and it will be another team to screw up all the predictions and forecasts this year when it all comes together for…

Akron? That would be the biggest shocker.

bowling green? That’s more likely, but still a long way off.

That’s what makes MAC so much fun – it’s kind of unpredictable, but the stars usually show up anyway.

The problem is the unequal level of the divisions. Unlike other conferences, the MAC won’t go into a no-division format — at least not yet — and in preseason predictions, the West is far, far stronger than the East.

These are the breaks in the crazy league and again there’s always a team that rises to make things more interesting. Here are the 2022 predictions for each MAC game.
