Mid-American Conference to scrap divisions starting in 2024

The Mid-American Conference announced a surprising revision of their future schedules on Thursday afternoon during the press conferences for the upcoming MAC Championship Game, with league commissioner Dr. Jon Steinbrecher revealing the MAC will scrap divisions starting in 2024.

“After significant study and discussion, our membership has made the decision to eliminate divisions in football,” Steinbrecher said via press release. “A primary goal in our discussions centered around ensuring the scheduling methodology utilized facilitated the best opportunity to put the two best teams into the championship game. The new model will protect rivalries while facilitating a more even rotation of teams through each institution’s schedule.
