Updated July 26, 2019 224 votes 26 voters12 items

List RulesVote up the Mid-American schools with the historically best football team.

Even the best Mid-American Conference football teams have a low ceiling outside and are rarely in the national championship conversation. 

But Mid-American football programs still have produced some the best players in the NFL today, such as Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger, Julian Edelman, and Khalil Mack. 

Celebrity/actor Terry Crews even spent his time on the field as a college football star for Western Michigan.

Of all 12 Mid-American teams, five have one at least seven conference titles, and none has won more than 11. So which Mid-American Conference programs stand out? Pick the best and help decide.
