Mid-Major top 10 poll: Fresno State takes initial poll

Marco Garcia-USA TODAY Sports

In the first installment of the mid-major power poll, Fresno State takes the top spot.

The first installment for the MId-major power rankings is out! Calm your excitement, or go crazy if you want to. These rankings are compiled by the various non-BCS sites of SB Nation, and is headed up by the fine people over at Hustle Belt which is your excellent news source on everything MAC related. The other sites participating this week are Cowboy Altitude, Hustle Belt, UB Bull Run and ourselves. This was a quick put together so hopefully there will be more participants next week.

The top two spots come in as no surprise with Fresno State and Northern Illinois taking the top two spots with Fresno State edging out Northern Illinois. The polls is comprised of three schools from the MAC and Mountain West, a pair of Conference USA teams and BYU who is one of the few independents.
