Wow. That is something. Don't play on a Saturday for a month, then the MACC is on a Saturday. So given B10, SEC and perhaps others are same day, 11am (10 central) local start?

RE: Updated MAC football schedule (time/tv)
Nothing like 6:00 PM weeknight games! Could they seriously make it any worse for fans that work and live in the Chicago area? Let's take off 1/2 a day of work to go to a game in freezing temperatures, get home late and then go to work the next day. Forget about it. Just watch the game on TV and save the price of tickets.

As a season ticket holder since the SATURDAY that Stacey Robinson became the starter, this is most likely my last year of season tickets. I'll just buy my one or two tickets for the season as needed. It's obvious that the MAC cares way more for ESPN than they do for their fans.

Oct. 26 – Thursday
*Eastern Michigan at NIU, 7:00 pm ET/6:00 pm CT (CBS Sports Network/ESPN3)

Nov. 9 – Thursday
*Ball State at NIU, 7:00 pm ET/6:00 pm ET (typo? (CT?)) (CBS Sports Network)

Nov. 15 – Wednesday
*Western Michigan at NIU, 7:00 pm ET/6:00 pm CT or 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT (ESPN2/ESPNU/CBS Sports Network)


We need to stop the MACness now! Take back the MAC from the MAC administrators and ESPN! #TakeBackTheMAC

Schedule

And don't forget to set you DVRs for the Toledo game which starts at 5:00 PM. Can't even make it home to watch an away game on TV on a Thursday.

Nov. 2 – Thursday
*NIU at Toledo, 6:00 pm ET/5:00 pm CT (ESPNU/CBS Sports Network)

Game Times Announced for Huskies’ Home Games

Made reservations at Hampton Inn the night of Sept. 1st. due to the late start. Rooms are going fast there.

I think I'm just going to leave my tent up and sleep in the parking lot.

Hotels in DeKalb/Sycamore are not cheap. $140 to $180, plus taxes.

If they could make kickoff at 11:00 p.m., we could all sleep in Huskie Stadium. Keep the Yard open all night and serve kegs and eggs the next morning.

Wow!!
That is outrageous. Did they build a Six Flags in DeKalb that I don't know about?

That is what they need to do to bring back Saturday football. :)
I can see ESPN putting on an all day football schedule like they did basketball. NIU will get the 6am slot just like Bball.

To me the 8:30 on a Friday is not nearly as bad as the 6:00 PM mid-week games. I'm not saying it is good, just that the MAC has made even worse choices this year. #TakeBackTheMAC
