The MAC is back and the six teams of the Mid-American Conference are ready to prove themselves. From Ypsilanti, Michigan to Athens, Ohio the MAC schools hit the recruiting trail hard and it shows. The MAC has no shortage of talent and the names that made this list are the best of the best. Without further ado, here are the CFSL Preseason All-MAC teams.

The First and Second team All-MAC teams are dominated by two teams. Bowling Green is the most represented team on the First Team (six players) and in total players on both teams (13). Following them closely is the Eagles of Eastern Michigan. EMU had eleven players represented on both teams, including five players receiving first-team honors. After these two teams, there is a considerable falloff in representation. Ohio’s QB Del Toro and HB Tank Lionhart made the All-MAC First-Team. They were the only Bobcats to make the cut. Northern Illinois and Toledo each had one player make each team. WR Brandon DeMoura was the only player from Kent State to make the All-MAC teams. Despite the disparity in team representation every MAC team had at least one player on the All-MAC First Team.
