Back To Maction: MAC Returns

Jonathan Grant | November 5th, 2020

It might be far from the most popular conference in college football, but the MAC is still a Division I conference and deserves respect. It got back underway on Wednesday night with a full slate of games, with some of the teams hoping to provide the proverbial ‘fly in the ointment’ to the bigger schools. Right out of the gate, there we a couple of barnstormers. Kent State defeated Eastern Michigan 27-23 as QB Preston Hutchinson and receiver Hassan Beydoun combined to lead them to it.

Elsewhere, Central Michigan narrowly overcame Ohio by a 30-27 score line. Kobe Lewis, a running back for Central Michigan, had over 100 yards and two touchdowns in the victory as they joined Toledo, Miami of Ohio, Buffalo, Western Michigan, and the aforementioned Kent State at 1-0 to kick off the season. The league will largely play in the middle of the week for the remainder of the season, with a short shift when Thanksgiving comes around, providing fans with the opportunity to watch more football and to see teams they don’t typically get to see. The Pac-12 will follow their suit this weekend, finally getting underway on Saturday.
