Broncos Projected to Finish Fifth in MAC West in MAC Preseason Media Poll
Western Michigan football finished the 2013 season at the bottom of the MAC West, but that didn't stop members of the media from selecting the Broncos to finish fifth in the MAC West in the 2014 MAC Preseason Media Poll. The Broncos were given 44 points in the poll, 20 more than Eastern Michigan. The Eagles are projected to finish at the bottom of the West. Toledo, Northern Illinois and Central Michigan all received first place votes, with the Rockets chosen as the team that will eventually win the division. Northern Illinois was selected to finish second, followed by Ball State, Central Michigan, Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan. In an arguably top-heavy East Division, Bowling Green is the heavy favorite to earn the top spot. The Falcons received 18 of the 21 first place votes, with three first place votes given to Akron.
