CBS Sports Network will begin airing MAC Conference games this coming college football season.

The CBS Sports Network is getting a piece of the MACtion. Through a sub-licensing agreement with ESPN, CBS Sports Network will be televising Mid-American Conference football and basketball games through the 2018-2019 season.

The deal will allow CBS Sports to televise six MAC football games and up to seven basketball games for the 2015 season, with the network airing up 12 MAC football and 12 MAC basketball games per season in later years.

MAC commissioner Dr. John Steinbrecher called the deal "another important step in the continued growth of Mid-American Conference television coverage."

"Having CBS Sports Network join us is part of our vision for the growth of live national coverage for our fan base. This agreement provides another platform to showcase the outstanding students attending Mid-American Conference member institutions. I look forward to joining forces with the CBS family."

Plans for the 2015 season call for CBS Sports Network to televise two Thursday-scheduled  MAC games, three Saturday-scheduled games, and one games scheduled for the Friday after Thanksgiving.
