2022 MAC Football TV/Streaming Primer: Saturday, Oct. 29

We get a little morsel of football this weekend before the return of the beloved weeknight #MACtion slate!

Bad news: There’s only two games on the docket for this upcoming Saturday. Good news: That means #MACtion is around the corner, as the other eight programs are on a BYE week to prepare for the weeknight slate over the month of November!

The two games up on offer are very interesting for very different reasons.

Miami is trying to keep their bowl dreams alive against an Akron team who has proven punchy in several games this season in a game where both teams have four combined victories. The winner would step out of the MAC East basement.

At the same time, one of the most unexpectedly important bouts in the MAC West division race starts up at The Factory, as Eastern Michigan hosts division leader Toledo with a chance to take the lead with a win. Toledo can get a two-game gap on the the West if they can secure victory.

Here’s the full slate of times, channels and odds below:
