- Western Michigan got a MAC win! NIU got a MAC loss! But it was pretty unbalanced as a hard foul by Travon Baker on Tucker Haymond that led to four (!!!) Huskies getting ejected. Not sure how that worked out, but it ultimately did in WMU's favor.
- Raven Lee had 21 second-half points in the Eagles' attempt to erase a 20-point deficit to take down Bowling Green at home, but missed some key shots in crunch and came up short.
- Joe Licata earned Offensive MVP honors in the Tropic Bowl yesterday. Want more? Great Ibe picked up Defensive MVP honors for the game as well. Too bad it wasn't on TV. Other MAC players that participated in the bowl game include (BGSU) TE Derek Lee, WR Ryan Burbrink, DL Zach Colvin and (Ohio) OL Lucas Powell.
