RETURN OF THE MAC

|
2011 was a great year for football schools of the Mid-American Conference. The league went a nation's best 4-1 in bowl games this season, tying with Conference USA. Northern Illinois' 38-20 victory over Arkansas State clinched the top spot for the MAC and the conference went a perfect 4-0 versus other Non-AQ leagues (2-0 vs Mountain West, 1-0 vs. Western Athletic and 1-0 vs. Sun Belt). Andrea Adelson of ESPN.com gave the league some props in her blog post, while Paul Myerberg ranked the MAC ahead of the WAC and Sun Belt.
