2023 MAC Championship Game: Matchup, kickoff time, TV

By Kevin Kelley -

The 2023 MAC Championship Game is set with the Miami RedHawks facing the Toledo Rockets. The game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 2 at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich.

Toledo claimed its spot in the 2023 MAC Championship Game after finishing atop the West Division with an undefeated 8-0 conference record (11-1 overall). Toledo has appeared in the championship game seven times previously, second only to Northern Illinois’ nine. In their most recent appearance last season, the Rockets defeated the Ohio Bobcats, 17-7, to improve their championship game record to 4-3.

The Miami RedHawks finished in sole possession of first place atop the MAC’s East Division with a 7-1 record (10-2 overall), one game ahead of Ohio. Miami will be making its sixth appearance in the MAC Championship Game. The RedHawks won the conference crown in 2003, 2010, and 2019 and came up short in 2004 and 2007.

Brett McMurphy of The Action Network currently projects Toledo to play the West Virginia Mountaineers in the 76 Birmingham Bowl and Miami to face the Boise State Broncos in the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl.

I’m rooting for a clean, competitive Game with few mistakes & quality execution by both Teams.

A 12-1 Season 4 the Rockets or
a 11-2 Season for the Red Hawks would be a great finish.
