NIU is just one game behind Toledo, but UT has the tiebreaker. If Buffalo would win at Toledo, they would be in an exact tie with us at 4-1 in the conference. That upset would put both divisions back in play.
Gonna be really cold for both night’s games…I predict empty stands.(except maybe for a few more attending the UT game).
MAC ACTION is great exposure but lots of empty seats. Akron at Miami probably won’t draw a good crowd.
Team deserves support.
Nice that we get a mini bye week right now though. We’ve got some guys banged up and I’m sure the coaches could use a few extra days with Aveon to work on our offensive game plan going forward
MACtion speaks louder than words! Interesting that C-USA and Sun Belt teams play midweek games in October and the MAC, which are schools in cold weather cities, play in November. I would hate to lose beautiful fall afternoons in October to switching, though.
It’s all relative though, our success on the field this season definitely helped draw better/livelier crowds for DSU/BG/UT than we would’ve gotten for typical FCS/family weekend/homecoming games. We’re not gonna have a great crowd for MACtion, but if it resembles Ball State 2016 a lot more than Buffalo 2013 that’s a success. One good season does not immediately create fan support after two decades of mostly bad/average football when Oxford is tiny and so many Miami alums live 2+ hours away.
Toledo returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. Then after a Buffalo 3 & out… UT scored again on a 71-yard run.
And Toledo up 14-0 after the first 3 minutes of the game. Opening kickoff returned for a touchdown and a long run on second offensive play later.
Refs sic’ing John Law on Toledo students throwing snowballs.
Wow! Whiteout at Central. I just love watching games in the snow while sitting in my warm living room.
Looks like a lot of ticket holders said the same thing.
Nobody noticed it, but on Toledo’s second TD Peny Boone dropped the ball before crossing the goalline. It should have been a touchback and UB ball.
Nice that the Maction week Miami isn’t a part of, is the one that’s opposite the World Series. Should be a few more bar TVs tuned to Maction the next couple of weeks.
All this great fall weather and they get this kind of weather day for MACtion. Too bad.
UT tacks on FG late in first half to go up 24-7 and Chips demolishing NIU in snowy Mt. Pleasant.
I’m not a big fan of ditching school colors, but I like Toledo’s unis.
Yeah it’s really weird to see Toledo in brown (or is it black) and orange.
Chips w big interception to seal the win after NIU staged a furious comeback. Now CMU 37-31 with less than a minute to play.
And CMU wins it!
…and UT cruising against hapless Bulls.
We should beat these guys along w Akron and BSU. 10-2, baby!
Need to stay focused on every single game. Way too many weird things have happened - like Coral Gables losing to GT, Carolina losing to both UVA and GT, and Louisville losing to Pitt.
I found it interesting that Toledo cleared their field of snow while Central left the snow on their field.
