COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 20 Kent State at Akron

Welcome back to MACtion! The wild, wooly, and wonderful mid week college football that kind of started this whole mid week college football thing many many moons ago!

This years season started last night with the mighty Rockets of the University of Toledo taking down the Bulls of the University of Buffalo 31-13. A nice win for Toledo over a Buffalo team that is still looking for a bowl birth.

Also on was what ended up being a fairly close game between the Chippewas of Central Michigan and the Huskies of Northern Illinois. Central Michigan lead early on but the Huskies made it a game in the fourth quarter and could have pulled off the win if it wasn’t for a late interception.

Not sure what happened at the end, but there was a fight between the two teams. Pretty rowdy of a situation.

I told you these games get wooly!

Please, enjoy midweek football. Trust me, it is enjoyable.
