On Friday night, in front of a suspected record crowd at Ford Field, there’s either going to be extreme exuberance or significant sadness as the Western Michigan Broncos dream season is going to continue or come crashing down to the turf thanks to the Ohio Bobcats. We’ve been here before, you know, with a Cinderella season underway and a heavy favorite ripe for the picking.
But much more than a MAC Championship is on the line for Western Michigan. The Broncos currently sit as the highest-ranked team from the so called, “Group of Five” conferences, needing just two things to happen to earn an automatic berth into the Cotton Bowl. One, win tonight to claim the conference championship required for a Group of Five school to earn a New Year’s Six bowl appearance and two, don’t get jumped in the final CFP rankings.
It’s not an out-and-out guarantee, but there’s a pretty good chance. If Western Michigan beats Ohio in Friday night’s MAC Championship Game in Detroit, the Broncos will represent the Group of 5 conferences in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 2.
Of course, there’s another team playing, too. WMU will be the story, but Ohio’s had a great year, winning eight games under head coach Frank Solich for the second year in a row. The Bobcats played Tennessee pretty tight in September and pulled out a win against a good Toledo team a month later. They’re underdogs, but they could plausibly win this thing.
