GRR: Mid-American Conference
The Mid-American Conference got going this weekend with favored teams victorious.
As has been the case throughout the country, questions remain about which teams can get the numbers to compete. The MAC has started well in that regard with teams able to make their commitments.
The Mid American Collegiate Conference has set its schedule for the fall of 2021, with a couple of changes in the lineup of teams to add to the mix.
IUPUI defeated Bowling Green 26-20 Saturday in the first game for each team in well over a year.
For IUPUI this was a victory in several senses of the word as the Jaguars had to battle through losing a coach and dealing with a recalcitrant school administration.
"We got denied three times to have games," said club president Spencer Strout. "But we kept coming back."
We're going to find out very soon what the DIAA fall bracket looks like, and it won't be a simple task to figure it out as ten teams are in the running for eight spots.The Automatics
Following this past weekend's action, three of the four conference champions pertinent to this playoff have been decided:
Bowling Green defeated Western Michigan 23-20 to win the Mid-American Conference championship about 11 months after winning the entire USA Rugby fall DIAA championship.
The Falcons were certainly in danger of not even winning their conference, as they had lost two games in the regular season, to Western Michigan and Louisville.
