Member Schools

There are thirteen schools with full membership:

East Division

West Division

In May 2005, Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania signed an initial six-year contract with the MAC as a football-only school. Over the next three seasons, Temple's schedule of league games will gradually increase: 4 in 2005, 6 in 2006, 8 (a full schedule) in 2007. Due to Temple's partial league schedule in 2005 and 2006, the football program will have only associate membership in the league. According to the league's press release on the matter, Temple will be eligible for one of the league's two bowl tie-ins, and participate in the league's television arrangement, beginning immediately. Eligibility to compete in the MAC Championship (and presumably, to win a Division Championship), however, does not come until 2007.

The University of Central Florida (UCF) is an affiliate member in football only; its principal conference, the Atlantic Sun Conference, does not sponsor football. UCF plays in the conference's East Division. The University of Kentucky is an affiliate member in men's soccer only; its principal conference, the Southeastern Conference, sponsors soccer for women but not for men. IPFW is an affiliate member in tennis only. The University of Louisville is an affiliate member in field hockey only; it will be leaving the MAC in 2005 for the Big East Conference, which sponsors field hockey programs (Conference USA, its current principal conference, does not).

In 2005, UCF and Marshall will leave the MAC for Conference USA.

Member schools participate in baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross-country, field hockey, American football, men's and women's golf, women's gymnastics, men's and women's soccer, softball, men's and women's swimming, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's track, women's volleyball and wrestling.

The MAC is contracted to provide a team for two college football bowl games—the GMAC Bowl and Motor City Bowl.
