MAC Football Schedule

Here's the conference matchups for 2013 just released by the Mid-American Conference.

As we already knew, UB lost defending champ Northern Illinois from last year's schedule and was assigned Eastern Michigan (2-10, 1-7) in a crossover. So we're getting closer to some semblance of fairness after last year's death sentence.

But note that Ohio -- yet again -- plays just two crossovers (against teams a combined 5-11 in conference last season). That means the Bobcats get both Akron and UMass (a combined 2-22, 1-15) in division. UB again won't see Akron, one of its closest East rivals. Hmmm.

And NIU again has crossovers with Akron and UMass, two teams it beat by the combined tune of 100-7 last year.

Make of it what you will.
