The road to the Mid-American Conference Marathon Football Championship Game begins and ends in Detroit. Ford Field has hosted the MAC Football Championship game since 2003 and also serves as the host site for MAC Media Day. 13 head coaches and 26 players were selected to travel to Detroit to meet with the media to discuss the upcoming football season.

An hour before MAC Commissioner Dr. Jon Steinbrecher spoke to the media for his annual “State of the MAC” address, the preseason polls were released. The Toledo Rockets were picked to win the MAC West Divison but by a small margin.

The Rockets received 11 first place votes finishing ahead of Western Michigan and Northern Illinois.

Bowling Green are the favorites to win the MAC East, earning 18 first place votes, followed by Ohio and Akron who tied for the second place vote.
