The MAC gets another two-fer day in what will be the second week of the Bowl Season, as Eastern Michigan and Northern Illinois are set to decide their postseason fates under the so-blue skies of Alabama.

The capital city is the background for the Camellia Bowl, which celebrates its 10th season under the re-born brand, while the port city in the Gulf will host the evening nightcap in the first-ever 68 Ventures Bowl— though the game itself has been a staple in MAC schedules for over a decade.

Here’s everything else you need to know for how to watch, listen and stream to the latest slates of bowl #MACtion:
