2013 Mid-American Conference Championship Game - Bowling Green vs. No. 14 Northern Illinois Open Chat

Chris Trotman

Join us as we discuss the showdown between the MAC's best offense and the MAC's best defense for the Conference Championship. We promise we're nice, and unlike the people at the bar we won't throw up on you if you make us laugh.

Tonight is the night we've all been waiting for. We've been reading up, placing bets and in some cases stocking up on the liquor for tonight's 2013 Mid-American Conference Championship Game between Bowling Green and No. 14 Northern Illinois on ESPN2.


There's a lot on the line in this one. For NIU it's a chance to remain undefeated, claim a third straight conference championship and all that sweet, sweet BCS cash. For Jordan Lynch a seat at the Heisman trophy ceremony is up for grabs. For the Bowling Green Falcons, it's about knocking off a bully, upsetting the darlings of the MAC. It's also about claiming a MAC Championship as the first team to win one from both divisions. Oh, and a chance to prove that even in a conference known for putting up points, a dominate defense can in fact win championships and do the unstoppable: shut down Jordan Lynch.

We've been covering the matchup all week long, and will be live and in person at the game tonight as our very own Alex Alvarado () and Thomas McElgunn have made the trip up to Detroit to bring you the best coverage of the #MACtion. We've given you the historythe odds, the key match upspredictions and the all important drinking game, all to get you prepped for tonight's game.
