No. 16 Northern Illinois vs. Toledo: A MAC West Showdown In Northwest Ohio

These NIU fans are ready for tonight's game, are you? - Chris Trotman

Wednesday night #MACtion ladies and gentlemen. We'll be chatting it up right here all night long.

Last night's MACtion may have featured a pair of blowouts, but didn't lack in excitement. Khalil Mack dominated his way to breaking the NCAA's career forced fumble record and Dri Archer went out with style scoring three touchdowns in Kent State's 31 point win over Ohio.

Tonight is the moment we've all been waiting for though. It's the No. 16 NIU Huskies vs. the Toledo Rockets, in the Glass Bowl, home to some of the most intense MAC Football games in recent history. Not only do these two teams produce instant classics such as the 2011 shootout in Toledo, they also seem to always be in a brawl for the MAC West crown. So why should any of that change tonight? If NIU wins it takes the MAC West title for a 4th consecutive year, whereas if Toledo wins it forces a three way tie that could easily send the Rockets to Detroit in two weeks.

Expect points, big time plays, even bigger stars and lots and lots of #MACtion. You can witness it all on ESPN2 at 8 p.m..
