    MAC Bowl Projections

    It would’ve been nice if Buffalo didn’t whiff against UMass on Thanksgiving weekend – it would’ve given the MAC an eighth bowl team in a year when the bowls are looking for eligible options. Even so, this should be a strong post-season for the league – at least in terms of appearances – with Akron, Central Michigan, and Ohio all flexible options to play around with for the various lower-level bowls.

    Bowling Green, Northern Illinois and Toledo are all attractive options to go against excellent teams from the American Athletic (Boca Raton), Mountain West, (San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia), and the top team from the Sun Belt (GoDaddy), so the league can generate some interesting showdowns.

    Western Michigan and Middle Tennessee have already agreed to play in the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl in what should be a wild and fun shootout.
