41. Northern Illinois 39, Central Michigan 38 | MAC game of the year, lock it up

New MAC Football Pod!


Northern Illinois beat Central Michigan 39-38 on the road on Saturday, and now the Huskies of all teams have complete control of the MAC West race with a 4-0 conference record. Even more: NIU’s the first bowl-eligible team in the MAC at 6-2.

NIU fought back from an 18-point deficit to take the lead (twice!) in the fourth quarter and banked on a kicker that you probably hadn’t heard of until he stepped on the field for his first of three field goals. CMU was a mishandled snap on a late field goal attempt away from coming away with the win, but in a sport cluttered with coulda-shoulda-wouldas, Thomas Hammock and NIU are finishing things with wins. And nothing matters more than winning. 

In this episode, Alex does a quick recap of Saturday’s game.

45. So, about that MAC expansion… | Hammock extension | Lew Nichols for MVP? MAC Football Pod

EPISODE 45 It turns out Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee will not be joining the Mid-American Conference, which is not what we were led to believe would happen this time last week. Why didn't things work out? Will it be a good or bad thing that they didn't join the MAC? Alex & Kaleb talk about that, and also touch on some recent MAC football musings, along with Thomas Hammock's (very well deserved) contract extension with NIU, and why Lew Nichols is this podcast's favorite to win the MAC's MVP award.  Twitters: @ARAlvarado13, @Kaleb_M_Carter LINKS Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mac-football-pod/id1554654736  Blog: macfootballblog.com Deezer: https://www.deezer.com/en/show/2331552  Email: alexonmaction@gmail.com iHeartRadio: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-alvarado-on-maction-78034985/  Podbay: https://podbay.fm/p/mac-football-pod  Podbean: https://macfootballpod.podbean.com/  Podcast Addict: https://podcastaddict.com/podcast/3534990  Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/6nA2YCoJJUTmCBMHm7LOA4  Stitcher: https://www.stitcher.com/show/alvarado-on-maction  TuneIn: https://tunein.com/podcasts/Sports–Recreation-Podcasts/Alvarado-on-MACtion-p1410495/
