2012 MAC Football Standings: Kent State owns top spot following Ohio's loss

Kent State now sits atop the East division in the MAC following Ohio's loss Saturday against Miami (OH)

The Ohio Bobcats fell out of the AP Top 25, the BCS standings and the top spot in the MAC standings following their loss Saturday to Miami (OH).

Ohio is now 7-1 overall and 3-1 in conference play, a mark which puts the Bobcats in fourth place in the East division. Benefiting from Ohio's slip is Kent State, who remains undefeated in MAC play, and Bowling Green and Miami (OH), who sit above Ohio is the standings despite each having one conference loss.

In the West, the divisional race will likely come down to two teams: Toledo and Northern Illinois. Both teams are 8-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference. The same two teams tied atop the West division last season with a 7-1 conference record, however, Northern Illinois held the tiebreaker and went on to win the 2011 MAC Championship.

Below are the complete 2012 MAC standings
