Where Should Western Michigan Broncos Rank After Saturday of Upsets?
As three previously unbeaten teams were upset Saturday in College Football, leaving WMU and Alabama the last of the undefeated teams. Where will Western Michigan find itself on the AP top 25?
The #2 ranked Clemson, #3 ranked Michigan and #4 ranked Washington were all handed their first losses of the season Saturday. Now Alabama remains #1 while CBS Sports predicts the Western Michigan Broncos will climb to #12 on Monday's AP Top 25.
12. Western Michigan (14): When we think of MACtion, the midweek late-season games often provide thrills with some occasional upsets or unexpected results. Western Michigan should then be happy to escape the midweek portion of its program still undefeated at 10-0 and eyeing a pair of winnable weekend games at home to clinch the division title and a shot at the New Year's Six.
The ESPN Coaches Poll puts the 10-0 Broncos at #21. That seems ludicrous! I'm not expecting ESPN or the AP to rank WMU #2. However, Top 10 seems like a no brainer at this point. #9 to be specific.
The Western Michigan Broncos have been more than just a "good story." They are a dominant team with incredible talent.
