MAC votes to play college football this fall with six-game season starting November 4


Almost two months after becoming the first FBS conference to cancel fall sports, the MAC became the last conference to restore football for 2020. The decision to send the teams back to the field was unanimous on Friday, and with that , the 10 FBS conferences will play a season in fall 2020.

The conference will begin on Wednesday, November 4 with a six-game schedule, conference-only, with the conference championship game taking place on either Friday, December 18 or Saturday, December 19. According to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg, MAC teams are likely to play only on weeknights for the month of November before moving to a Saturday schedule in December.

“The Council of Presidents has had extensive discussions with our medical advisers from the Mid-American Conference,” said Dr. Satish Tripathi, Chairman of the Council of Presidents, in a statement.
