MAC-ku: Week 2 Recap

There were some really good games in Week 2 for a lot of the MAC. We revisit them in haiku.

Week 2 saw some interesting results for the MAC, and was certainly more positive than Week 1, which saw some decidedly not-fun results.

EMU beat a Power Five opponent for the first time in program history and CMU bested Kansas to gain their first win over the Jayhawks in program history, while many of the MAC’s member teams readily handled FCS squads to get a mark on the left side of the win-loss column.

Not everything was hunky-dory, though: Ohio faded down the stretch against Purdue in a loss, while Bowling Green suffered a humiliating loss to South Dakota, their FCS opponent. NIU and Kent State also struggled to get past their FCS foes before ultimately finding victory.

In case you missed the last week and need to know how to feel, we’ve got summaries of every game in haiku below for your convenience.

Ohio at Purdue

Purdue did not stop the train.

Side of pickles, fries.
