Ford Field has been a hoppin’ place lately.
The typical occupant Detroit Lions have restored the roar to their home confines, starting the NFL season at 8-3— even if the Thanksgiving game didn’t quite go to plan. Meanwhile, Black Friday saw Ford Field host the Land Grant Trophy Rivalry between Penn State and Michigan State. The following day? Why, the traditional Michigan High School Football State Championships, of course!
This week, it’s the MAC’s turn to make an impression and give the people some afternoon action, as the Toledo Rockets (11-1, 8-0 MAC West) is set to face off against the Miami RedHawks (10-2, 7-1 MAC East.) The Rockets come in at #23 in the Associated Press poll as of Nov. 28, but are still looking to make an impression upon the College Football Playoff Committee, who ranks two teams ahead of them as of publication.
Miami has also received votes in the Associated Press poll, and could jump into the rankings with a win over Toledo this week.
It promises to be good fun for all, and we’ve got all the information you need to watch the game in this storystream, from historic deep dives to team previews to the recaps and aftermath. Be sure to bookmark and/or refresh this page often, as we’ll be updating here all week!
