Home Watch It
Saturday, Noon Ball State 7-1 (4-0 MAC) Akron 2-6 (1-3 MAC) ESPN GamePlan / ESPN3
The Cardinals and Akron face off in this interdivisional matchup that can be streamed on ESPN3, or watched on ESPN GamePlan. It will also be carried by ESPN Regional, so check your local ABC affiliates to see if this game is available in your area (likely only in the Akron/Muncie regions). The Cardinals are flying high and take on an Akron squad that just won its first MAC game since 2010.
Saturday, 2 p.m. Miami 0-7 (0-3 MAC) Ohio 5-2 (2-1 MAC) ESPN3
The Battle of the Bricks resumes Saturday in Athens, Ohio and can be streamed on ESPN3. The 'Cats are coming off a huge bounce back win over EMU, and will be looking for revenge against the 'Hawks after they ended the 'Cats unbeaten season in 2012. Miami is still winless, but showed immense signs of growth this past week, and always plays Ohio hard.
Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Toledo 4-3 (2-1 MAC) Bowling Green 5-2 (3-0 MAC) ESPN3
The Battle of I-75 also resumes Saturday in what will surely be an epic battle. Toledo has played one of the toughest schedules in the conference, and is far better than its record shows. Bowling Green has been one of the best team's in the conference and is coming off a bye week. IT's a matchup between two of the conference's best rushing attacks, though the Rockets' David Fluellen will be a gametime decision. The game can be streamed online via ESPN3.
Saturday, 3 p.m. Western Michigan 0-8 (0-4 MAC) UMass (1-6 (1-2 MAC) ESPN3
It's the Battle of the Sayings. Sure this isn't a real rivalry, but we can make it one. Western Michigan has a chance to finally capture its first win on the season this week against a sloppy UMass team. The Minutemen were steamrolled by Buffalo a week ago, but will be looking to double last years win total at home. You can stream this glorious matchup on ESPN3.
Saturday, 3:30 p.m. Buffalo 5-2 (3-0 MAC) Kent State 2-6 (1-3 MAC) Time Warner Cable SportsChannel / ESPN GamePlan / ESPN3
I've aired my grievances about this Time Warner deal enough, so I'll get right to it. If you have it you're in luck. If you live in Ohio and you don't, it's blacked out so don't even bother. Colin Reardon could be a no-go for the second week, and Buffalo has been steam rolling teams left and right. This one could be ugly, so it might be best if it's blacked out on ESPN3 in your area.
Saturday, 3:30 p.m. Eastern Michigan 1-6 (0-3 MAC) Northern Illinois 7-0 (3-0 MAC) Comcast Sports Net Chicago / ESPN GamePlan / ESPN3
The Huskies look to continue their winning ways against a struggling EMU team Saturday on Comcast Sports Net Chicago. I don't live in Illinois, so I have no clue how widely available this game will actually be, but it is also available for streaming on ESPN3. Any chance to watch the art that is Jordan Lynch dissecting opposing defenses, you should probably take it.


Which game are you most looking forward to watching?
