Friday 7:00 PM: #17 Western Michigan vs. Ohio
The best team outside of the power five conferences and one enjoying an extraordinary season, it would be fun to see how undefeated MAC heavyweights Western Michigan would fare against some of the upper echelon talent in the Big Ten or SEC. As it is, coach P.J. Fleck's team has beaten everyone on their schedule — including Northwestern and Illinois — and appear likely to end up in a prestige bowl against a household name. They'll need to swat away pesky Ohio in the MAC Championship game to accomplish this, which they are likely to do without surpassing difficulty.
