Nothing much changed from Week 9 to Week 10 in the MAC when it came to the race for bowl eligibility.  No teams either became bowl eligible or added a fifth win to their records.

The lack of teams getting to six wins was due to two of the 5-4 teams going in Week 10, Akron and Eastern Michigan, having bye weeks. Central Michigan, the other MAC team with five wins, lost to Miami (Ohio) on Friday, going to 5-5 on the season.

The win over Central Michigan gave Miami (Ohio) a 4-6 record. It will win its last two games of the season against Buffalo on Nov. 12, and Ball State on Nov. 22, for a chance to earn a bowl bid.

Here is the list of MAC teams which are bowl eligible, along with those that need one of two games to earn a bowl bid.
