Tomorrow marks the 17th annual Mid-American Conference Football Championship Game, and it's shaping up to be an epic one. Bowling Green comes in having won the MAC East on the final day of the regular season by beating Buffalo for the title. Northern Illinois enters having rattled off 12-straight wins, steamrolling over competition down the stretch. For NIU a win means a return trip to the BCS and a possible (though not incredibly likely) Heisman trophy for Lynch. For Bowling Green a win would be a huge resume boost to a defense in a conference known for playing under video-game-rules.
The Falcons feature one of the best defense in the country, consistently appearing in the Top 10 in defensive statistical categories, while the Huskies feature a high-powered offense and one of the most dynamic quarterbacks we've ever seen in Heisman-hopeful Jordan Lynch. On paper it appears to be the perfect match up. Strength vs Strength. Vegas seems to agree, putting NIU as a 3-point favorite over Bowling Green earlier this week.
