Every week, Marquette Social Scene will rank the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s 15 football schools from best to worst and will see how Northern Michigan University fits each week. Broken into the contenders, the darkhorses and rebuilds, read what the GLIAC has to offer below.

Rebuilds (15-11)

15. Malone  (No Change)

The Pioneers are going to be in this spot until they win a game. Until then, Malone can take pride in finishing strong to avoid the shutout against Tech.


14. Saginaw Valley (— 6)

A loss to Tiffin by itself isn’t the only reason why the Cards fell so drastically. It’s the personnel questions at wide receiver and quarterback that really bodes bad for Saginaw.


13. Lake Erie  (No Change)

Lake Erie has shown they can turn any game into their favor behind their potent offense. The Storm just can’t get a stop to make it matter. As the defense grows through the season, their win count and power ranking should rise.


12. Tiffin ( + 2)

The Dragons finally have their first GLIAC road victory since joining the league in 2008. Focusing on their league-leading pass defense after two games (138.5 ypg) will help Tiffin to continue improving.


11. Walsh (— 1)

After a week of hopeful aspirations, Walsh went back to the bottom grouping of the GLIAC South with their loss. Statistically, they weren’t blown out by Ashland, but conceding 10 points off two interceptions turned this into a blow out.
