Now that most to teams in the Mac have begun their MAC schedules it is a good time to unveil the first Mid-American Conference power rankings of 2013.  There were a few MAC games on the college football slate this weekend all of which provided predictable but telling results.

There are several teams yet to play a MAC opponent because of their non-conference schedule. North Illinois and Ohio emerged from their non-conference schedules in strong positions. Other schools like Western Michigan had their brutal non-conference slate back fire and have yet to win in 2013.

#1 Northern Illinois Huskies 3-0 overall 0-0 MAC - Northern Illinois was the first MAC team to get a BCS berth in 2012.  This season they have picked up right where they left off going 3-0 in non-conference play including an impressive 30-27 over Iowa at Kinnick Stadium to open the season.  The Huskies were off this week but pick up their difficult schedule on the road against Purdue.

#2 Toledo Rockets 2-2 overall 1-0 MAC- The Rockets gave the Florida Gators and Missouri Tigers a scare then evened their record with wins over Eastern Washington and Central Michigan.  Toledo gets credit here for playing some tough road games closely.   They also have a solid talent at running back in David Fluellen.
