The MAC In A BCS Bowl? It's In The Realm Of Possible

Unless Jason Kirk's bowl projections are a systematic long con designed to hurt the MAC's feelings, he has Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl. He feels that based on NIU's style of play and their computer rankings, a win over Kent State would put the Huskies in the top 16, giving them their first BCS bowl in conference history.

But don't discount Kent State's chance to win it either, meaning that this MAC championship could have implications beyond our regular imaginations, and the best part: you don't have to root for anyone else.
