#MACinsider Thoughts: This is going to be a fantastic weekend of wrestling! I'm most looking forward to my hometown of Buffalo's home opener against Pittsburgh. #HornsUp! With week one in the books, I think this weekend will be very telling as to which teams are consistently producing early in the season, and which teams still need to make some adjustments. Some teams might need to adjust their lineup, while others need to modify their training to be more competitive throughout the season. First impressions are HUGE, and I'm a huge first impressions girl. I'm hoping to see a few upsets, and the college rankings get flipped upside down. Any weight. Any wrestler. Any MAC school. I just want to see an upset. Anyway, the MAC is the best conference, and you can't change my mind.

Wrestlers to Watch:

Alex Carida (157) - Bloomsburg University
Izzak Olejnik (165) - Northern Illinois University
Logan Stanley (174) - Ohio University
Colin McCracken (184) - Kent State University
Matt Correnti (197) - Rider University
