MAC Football Week 8 Gameday Open Thread


It's gameday! Join us as we discuss the wacky world of MACtion in our Week 8 GameDay open thread. All are welcome!

It's hard to believe it, but Week 8 is here already. We have a lot of interesting games on tap today, including a pair of non-conference matchups. Toledo kicks things off by playing host to a powerful Navy rushing attack at noon, while Kent State heads down south in search of win against a dangerous South Alabama offense. In the MAC, Ohio is looking to rebound against EMU after a frustrating loss a week ago, Western Michigan is searching for its first win of the season, against the surging Ball State Cardinals, and Akron just may end its 28-game FBS losing streak on the road against Miami. Then of course there's NIU at Central Michigan and UMass at Buffalo to close out the afternoon. Here's the full schedule complete with game previews for each matchup.
