Temple Leaves MAC in Odd Position

Temple's all-sports departure to the Big East leaves the Mid-American Conference football landscape looking as it had: seven teams in the East Division and six in the West. The conference has announced that Bowling Green, which was set to rejoin traditional rival Toledo in the West, will remain in the East, joining UB, Kent State, Akron, Ohio, Miami (Ohio) and newcomer UMass. MAC commissioner Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher says it's too early to decide whether the conference will seek at 14th team. The conference had admitted UMass as a football member for the purpose of balancing the divisions and schedule.
