2013 Preseason MAC Offensive Player of the Year

QB Jordan Lynch, Sr. Northern Illinois

The big question mark going into last season for NIU was whether or not Lynch could be an adequate replacement for Chandler Harnish. Problem solved. All he did was run for 1,815 yards and 19 touchdowns while leading the way to a MAC title and an Orange Bowl win, while doing a little of everything as both a runner and a passer. He's not all that big and can't take too many big shots, but he's tough as nails and will once again be the key part in a championship-level puzzle.

2013 Preseason MAC Defensive Player of the Year
 
LB Khalil Mack, LB Buffalo

A guided missile of a hitter, Mack is the consummate playmaker and leader for a good Bull defense. The 6-3, 245-pound pass rusher has done it all for the defense with 227 career tackles with 56 tackles for loss, 20 sacks and 11 forced fumbles. Not just a pass rusher, he’s good enough against the pass to get by and is a huge hitter against the run. He’ll be a starter in the NFL next year at this time.
