However, a handful of other teams think they've got a chance too. Here's a look at the MAC and some [custom:bodog-link] futures:

Toledo Rockets (Odds to Win MAC at [custom:bodog-link] 13/4)

Toledo, 7-1 in conference play last year, returns 18 starters this year, including All-MAC RB Adonis Thomas, WR Eric Page, and nine on defense. And they get Northern Illinois and Western Michigan at home.

Northern Illinois Huskies (Odds to Win MAC at [custom:bodog-link] 7/2)

The Huskies, MAC runner-ups last year, only return 10 starters this year, just two on defense. They do get back All-MAC QB Chandler Harnish and the entire offensive line, but they also lost head coach Jerry Kill.

Temple Owls (Odds to Win MAC at [custom:bodog-link] 4/1)

Temple, 12-4 in the MAC over the last two years, returns 12 starters, seven on offense, for new head coach Steve Addazio.

Miami-Ohio RedHawks (Odds to Win MAC at [custom:bodog-link] 5/1)

Miami-Ohio gets back 17 starters from its conference championship team of last year, including four on the o-line and nine on defense. However, they've also got a new head coach and have to play at Toledo and Temple.

Ohio Bobcats (Odds to Win MAC at [custom:bodog-link] 5/1)

The Bobcats, 6-2 in the MAC last year, get seven starters back on offense, but only four on defense. They miss Toledo, though, and get Temple and Miami-Ohio at home.

Western Michigan Broncos (Odds to Win MAC at [custom:bodog-link] 8/1)

The Broncos, 5-3 in the MAC last year, return 15 starters, but they have to play at Northern Illinois, Toledo, and Miami-Ohio.
