We’ve got another big night of #MACsketball tonight with six games on tap, starting off with the Buffalo Bulls tip off at Robert Morris at 7 p.m. The Colonials have struggled mightily this season on their way to a 3-9 record, so UB may be able to get back on track tonight. Also at 7 p.m. is the match-up between the Akron Zips and UC Irvine in El Paso, Texas for the Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational. The Anteaters have been up-and-down this season, losing four of their last five but took California to overtime earlier in the year.

At 9 p.m., a pair of MAC contenders hit the hardwood as the Central Michigan Chippewas tangles with Montana State on the road while the Ohio Bobcats heads to Western Kentucky. MSU has lost five straight and the Hilltoppers have dropped six of their last seven, so the Chips and the ‘Cats should be able to hold serve tonight.

Lastly, the Western Michigan Broncos and the Kent State Golden Flashes take the stage at 11 p.m. with games at UCLA and Oregon State, respectively. The Bruins are sitting at #2 in the country in the polls while the Beavers have won one game in their last ten tries, leaving KSU with a much better chance of pulling off the road win on paper. Let’s have some fun in the comments below as we partake in some #MACtion tonight.
