#MACtion Recap

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The title is self explanatory. #MACtion is a revolution. How did the conference fare week three? Read below to find out for yourself.

You love your MACtion. So do we! That's why we have this week's MACtion recap. The conference went 4-8 overall with Miami (Ohio) on a bye week. Here's how everyone fared.

Marshall 31 Ohio 34- Frank Solich and his Bobcats earned the MAC's biggest win of the weekend, taking down 2-0 Marshall to win The Battle for the Bell. After a disappointing 49-7 loss in their opener, the Bobcats have responded by winning two straight to improve to 2-1.

Stony Brook 23 Buffalo 26 (5OT)- Buffalo barely escaped with a win Saturday afternoon. The Bulls were out-gained and outplayed for most of the afternoon but will gladly take the win heading into their bye week.

Bowling Green 10 Indiana 42- Going in, many people thought the Falcons could upset Indiana but boy was everybody wrong! The Hoosiers dominated on their way to a blowout win.

Akron 24 #11 Michigan 28- Akron held a 24-21 lead with four minutes remaining but couldn't hold on as the Zips gave the Michigan all they could handle. Unfortunately for Akron, they still haven't beaten a FBS squad since 2010.

Eastern Michigan 10 Rutgers 28- Eastern Michigan actually played quite well, out-gaining the Scarlet Knights by 99 yards but couldn't put enough points on the scoreboard as the Eagles fall to 1-2.

Ball State 27 North Texas 34- For supposedly being one of the top teams in the MAC, Ball State suffered an awful loss to North Texas, blowing an 18-point lead in a disappointing loss for the Cardinals. Ball State had no problem gaining yards but had a tons of problems stopping the Mean Green attack.

Northern Illinois 45 Idaho 35-
After trailing 21-7 early, Northern Illinois decided to wake up, outscoring the Vandals 24-7 in the 2nd half on their way to a 10-point win.

Kent State 13 #8 LSU 45- The magic that Kent State had in 2012 has quickly worn off to start 2013. The Golden Flashes played a vastly superior LSU squad and had it handed to them Saturday in a blowout loss.

UMASS 7 Kansas State 37- Wait, UMASS has a division one football team!?!? They play in the MAC!?!?! Since when????

Eastern Washington 21 Toledo 33-
Considering Eastern Washington knocked off #25 Oregon State on the road two weeks ago, Toledo should be pleased with the way they played Saturday night. The Rockets offense had it going, accumulating over 500 yards in an offensive showcase.

Western Michigan 17 #17 Northwestern 38- I love Northwestern. As a former journalism major in college, I respect Northwestern for their academics. Now, I respect them for their football program. Pat Fitzgerald has the Wildcats on fire as they won comfortably at home to improve to 3-0.

Central Michigan 21 UNLV 31- This game was a contest of runs. CMU started by going up 21-0 before watching the Rebels go off for 31 unanswered points.
