MAC Week Three – Preview, TV, Streaming, Betting Line

The MAC has a chance to pull some huge upsets, but is spending most of week three facing off versus Conference USA and the MWC.

Ohio at Tennessee

  • Start Time: 12:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Neyland Stadium, Knoxville, Tennessee
  • TV: SEC Network

  • Radio: Ohio: Here. Tennessee: Here.
  • Records: Ohio: 1-1. Tennessee: 2-0.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: Ohio +27. O/U: 57.5

Appalachian State nearly upset Tennessee at Neyland. Ohio is not Appalachian State.

Akron at Marshall

  • Start Time: 12:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Joan C. Edwards Stadium, Huntington, West Virginia
  • TV: CBSSN
  • Streaming: CBSSN
  • Radio: Akron: Here. Marshall: Here.
  • Records: Akron: 1-1. Marshall: 1-0.

  • Line: Marshall -17. O/U: 57.5.

Akron could end up as the favorite to win the MAC East. But they do not match up well versus Marshall.

Middle Tennessee at Bowling Green

  • Start Time: 12:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Doyt Perry Stadium, Bowling Green, Ohio
  • TV: ESPN3/ASN
  • Streaming: ESPN3

  • Records: MTSU: 1-1. BGSU: 1-1.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: MTSU -5.5. O/U: 72.

A mad MTSU team coming to town should easily score 40+ in blowing out the Falcons.

Eastern Kentucky at Ball State

  • Start Time: 3:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Scheumann Stadium, Muncie, Indiana
  • TV: ESPN3
  • Streaming: ESPN3
  • Radio: EKU: Here. Ball State: Here.
  • Records: EKU: 2-0. Ball State: 2-0.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: None.

Ball State has a very good chance to get to 3-0. I can’t believe I typed that sentence.

Fresno State at Toledo

  • Start Time: 3:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Glass Bowl, Toledo, Ohio
  • TV: ESPN3
  • Streaming: ESPN3

  • Records: Fresno State: 1-1. Toledo: 2-0.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: Toledo -20.5. O/U: 56.5.

This game looked much better on paper when Derek Carr was still with the Bulldogs. Toledo should win and win big.

UNLV at Central Michigan

  • Start Time: 3:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Kelly/Shorts Stadium, Mount Pleasant, Michigan
  • TV: ESPN3
  • Streaming: ESPN3

  • Records: UNLV: 1-1. CMU: 2-0.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: CMU -13.5. O/U: 55.5.

A classic spot for a letdown game for the Chippewas, this should be a fun game. UNLV is getting much better.

San Diego State at Northern Illinois

  • Start Time: 3:30 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Huskie Stadium, DeKalb, Illinois
  • TV: CBSSN
  • Streaming: CBSSN

  • Records: SDSU: 2-0. NIU: 0-2.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: NIU +10.5. O/U: 50.

Another game that looked much better on paper heading into the season, the Huskies will struggle to even compete with the MWC power.

Monmouth at Kent State

  • Start Time: 3:30 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Dix Stadium, Kent, Ohio
  • TV: ESPN3
  • Streaming: ESPN3
  • Radio: Monmouth: Here. Kent State: Here.
  • Records: Monmouth: 2-0. Kent State: 0-2.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: None.

At 0-2, Kent State clearly needs a win. Monmouth is not a gimme. Please don’t screw this up Golden Flashes.

Western Kentucky at Miami

  • Start Time: 3:30 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Yager Stadium, Oxford, Ohio
  • TV: ESPN3
  • Streaming: ESPN3

  • Records: WKU: 1-1. Miami: 0-2.
  • Live Stats: Here.
  • Line: WKU -18. O/U: 62.5.

This could get ugly with WKU jumping all over the RedHawks before letting off the gas.

Western Michigan at Illinois

  • Start Time: 4:00 PM EST. Saturday, September 17.
  • Location: Memorial Stadium, Champaign, Illinois
  • TV: ESPN News
  • Streaming: WatchESPN

  • Line: WMU -3. O/U: 56.5.

A 3-0 start with two wins over Big Ten teams, this could be the start of a great season for Western Michigan.

Eastern Michigan at Charlotte

  • Location: McColl-Richardson Stadium, Charlotte, North Carolina
  • TV: N/A

Ugh. Next please.

Buffalo at Nevada

  • Location: Mackay Stadium, Reno, Nevada

Nevada should roll, but Buffalo had to be better than what they showed in a loss to Albany.
