Research Notes

  • From Elias: Kent State and Northern Illinois both have 11 wins this year. This is only the 2nd time ever that the MAC has had two 11-win teams in the same season, in this the 67th year of existence. The other time was in 2003 when Bowling Green and Miami (OH) both finished with 11+ wins. Miami (OH) finished 13-1 that season with Ben Roethlisberger playing QB.
