"We have a deliver of MACtion."

"where to?"

"Gillette Stadium."

The most unlikely of all of this weekends MAC games is arguably the MAC-iest. The UMass Minutemen and Western Michigan Broncos are locked in an offensive shootout in Foxboro, Mass. with the Minutemen holding a narrow 21-17 lead at half.

The two squads have been trading blows back and forth all game, and besides the penalties, are actually playing a decent game. WMU has the offensive advantage, having accumulated a balanced 238 yards on the ground, but have stalled on a few drives. UMass has 172 yards, most of those coming from A.J. Doyle who is arguably having the best game of his career.

The sophomore is 6 of 9 for 122 yards and a touchdown, and has been targeting Rob Blanchflower all game. The big senior tight end has a career high 103 yards on four catches, including the lone passing touchdown.

WMU's Zach Terrell is 15 of 22 for 134 yards and two scores.
