MAC Football Halftime: Ew, This Isn't Going Well

It's halftime in the noon games in MAC football. Here's what we're seeing, and why we're frowning:

PENN STATE 14, OHIO 3 — The coverage has been understandably much about the state of the Penn State program, the Paterno statue, the NCAA violations, a new era ... and yet it's a curiously close game thanks to the NCAA also banning thumbs on the Nittany Lions football team. A couple key fumbles have killed chances for PSU, and OHIO hasn't done much with it either. Matt Weller characteristically missed a 44-yarder, but their secondary is getting dinged up. It's not just the loss of Travis Carrie but cornerback Jamil Shaw also went out with something undisclosed.

If they're giving up this many pitch-and-catches to Matt McGloin, imagine what some of the MAC quarterbacks will do.

OHIO STATE 21, MIAMI (OH) 3 — Five minutes and 50 seconds. That's how long the RedHawks had a lead and then OH COME ON THAT'S NOT FAIR.

ILLINOIS 17, WESTERN MICHIGAN 0 — Is Illinois this good? They better be a Big Ten contender, because right now WMU looks completely lost. The offense is playing poorly (two interceptions), and when the offense can't score or move the ball, they're not punting very well either (about 30 yards per punt).

GEORGIA 24, BUFFALO 6 — You're looking at the only touchdown of the first half by the MAC, and it was Alex Zordich to Alex Neutz. Buffalo is Team Alex.

Welp. Only a matter of time before the 3:30 games begin.
