MAC schedule released

The Mid American Conference released their schedule today, and it includes nine games scheduled for ESPN prime time.

New Akron head coach Terry Bowden will get welcomed back the FBS when they take on Central Florida at home and will follow up with games with at FIU, at home against Morgan State and at Tennessee before starting the MAC schedule with Miami (OH).

Matt Campbell and Toledo will start out with road games at Arizona (that one could be a high scoring affair), and Wyoming before their first conference game with Bowling Green. Week 4 the Rockets will head to Conway, South Carolina to take on Joe Moglia in his first season at Coastal Carolina.

Conference newcomer UMass and Charley Molnar will kick off their new FBS membership with games against Big Ten schools in two of their first three games (Indiana in week 2 and at Michigan in week 3) after kicking things off at Connecticut in week 1.

If last season was any indication...expect there to be plenty of great weekday MACtion again this season.
