Next Episode of MAC Football Championship is
The MAC Football Championship is a football game between the winners of the East and West divisions of the Mid-American Conference (MAC) to determine the conference champion. The game has been played and aired on one of ESPN TV's family of networks since 5 December 1997, when the conference was first divided into divisions and since 2003 has been sponsored by Marathon Oil. The winner of the game is guaranteed a berth in a bowl game which the MAC has contractual obligations to field a team. Since 2004, the championship game has been played at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. Previously the game was held at campus sites. In 2000, 2001, and 2007, due to an unbalanced conference schedule, the team with best division record within each division was awarded that division's championship game berth. In other years, the teams with the best overall conference records received a berth.
Northern Illinois and Bowling Green meet in the MAC championship game for the third consecutive year. The Huskies (8-4) are playing in their sixth straight title game, winning three of the last four. Bowling Green (9-3) won the 2013 league crown.
The 2016 Mid-American Conference Championship game is airing live tonight from Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
