There will be a total of five MAC footbal games playing tonight. Like many of you, I did not think we would make it to the glorious and cold mid week nights of MACtion in 2020. But, here we are in all of its glory.

Hopefully these Mid American Conference games will get us through to the weekend where we can sit back and cheer on our beloved Huskers.
