MAC Championship Football Game History

BCS · ACC · Big Ten · Big 12 · C-USA · MAC · Pac-12 · SEC
The Mid-America Conference championship is the second-longest running league title game after the SEC (the Big 12 ended its championship after 2010). This league's contest has taken place at Ford Field in Detroit since 2003, as the game was previously played at the school with the best record (1997-2002). The winners of the Eastern and Western divisions of the MAC meet in the title game, as Northern Illinois has played in the championship each of the last three years.

In 2013, the Huskies won in two overtimes over Kent State, 44-37 as five-point favorites, as NIU claimed its second straight conference title. NIU followed that up in 2014 by pounding Bowling Green 51-17 as a five-point favorite. Under bettors couldn't believe their misfortune when NIU scored with :48 remaining rather than kneeling on the ball, changing the result from under to over. Underdogs are now 10-7 ATS in the MAC championship. Marshall participated in the first six MAC title games (including five at home), winning five times before exiting the conference to head to Conference USA. Central Michigan and Northern Illinois currently own the most MAC titles for active league members with three, while Miami (Ohio), and Toledo have each claimed two conference championships.
