The Buffalo Bulls head into the MAC title game with an undefeated record, with the Ball State Cardinals looking to knock them off for a conference championship on Friday night. This game will start at 7:30 p.m. ET and air on ESPN.

Buffalo comes into this game with a 5-0 record, and has beaten every team it played this season by an average margin of victory more than 30 points. The Bulls did not play a very good schedule even among MAC teams, and Ball State will far and away be the best team Buffalo has faced all season long. The Cardinals check in with a 5-1 record with an offense that has scored 27 or more points in every game they played in this season, so Buffalo will have a tougher task than we have seen so far.

If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup via the WatchESPN app. If you don’t have cable, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the MAC Championship Game on Friday.

The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter or live-betting during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.

The Bulls are 13-point favorites on DraftKings Sportsbook while the Cardinals are at +335 on the moneyline. The point total is set at 69.5.
