Stanford and Northwestern To Play
Anyone under 1,300 SAT and unwilling to
drop $200,000 need not apply. Northwestern has been
busy trying to build up its national profile. It
announced a future series with Notre Dame last week,
and now the school has announced a four-game series
with Stanford starting in 2019 in Evanston.

UMass To Join
The Mid-American Conference announced on Wednesday
that the University of Massachusetts will be the
league's 14th football member and able to win the
MAC title game in 2013, and will be a part of the
FBS and will play a league slate.
"We feel the time is right for this landmark decision of UMass football elevating to the FBS level," said University of Massachusetts Athletic Director John McCutcheon.
At the moment, there are seven teams in the MAC East
(Akron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Kent State, Miami,
Ohio and Temple) and six in the West (Ball State,
Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Northern
Illinois, Toledo, and Western Michigan), but there
could be some movement to add UMass to the East to
make geographic sense.
