#MACinsider Thoughts: After going a perfect 5-0 on my weekly predictions last weekend, I'm feeling confident that the MAC will crown at least four champions between Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully more! On Saturday, SIUE Edwardsville will be traveling to the Lindenwood Open, Clarion will be traveling to the Shorty Hitchcock Memorial Open, and Cleveland State, Edinboro, Kent State, Lock Haven, and Ohio will be traveling to the Navy Classic. On Sunday, George Mason and Rider will be traveling to the Keystone Classic. With these matchups in mind, it's clear that there will be interconference showdowns…get your popcorn ready! Or chicken fingers! Whichever you prefer. Although I won't be able to make the trip to Penn, you'll be seeing me at the Buffalo vs. Michigan match held at Alumni Arena on The University at Buffalo's North Campus at 1:00pm. Don't be late. Seriously, don't.

Wrestlers to Watch:

Sean Spidle (125) - Central Michigan
CJ Manley (133) - Lock Haven
Nathan Higley (141) - George Mason
John Arceri (149) - University at Buffalo
Colton McKiernan (HWT) - SIUE Edwardsville
