The MAC has (sort of) released its 2014 schedule

The 2014 college football season kicks off 198 days from today, and the Mid-American Conference does not yet have its 2014 schedule. 

The slate will be released sometime between today and August 28, but that day is not today. However, the MAC has released its set of home/away opponents for each of its 13 members. As a reminder, Bowling Green defeated Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship, while Ball State, Buffalo and Ohio all made bowl appearances. Eastern Michigan (Chris Creighton), Bowling Green (Dino Babers), Massachusetts (Mark Whipple) and Miami, Ohio (Chuck Martin) will all break in new head coaches.

Listed below are the 2014 opponents for each MAC school (*crossover opponent):
