Head Coach Ryan Ray Head Coach Ryan Ray Eighth Season Nebraska-Kearney, 1998 Oklahoma, 2000 The 2013-14 season marks the eighth year for Ryan Ray as head women’s tennis coach at Eastern Michigan University. Ray (62-95) took over the EMU coaching duties in 2006-2007 after serving as the head coach of the men’s tennis program at Indiana State University. He led ISU to an undefeated regular season conference championship and a second-place finish in the league tournament while earning Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year honors in 2005. Since that first 2006-07 season, Ray has methodically built the EMU women’s program into one of the most competitive squads in the Mid-American Conference. The 2012-13 season was a successful one for multiple student-athletes on the squad, most notably freshman Klara Supejova. Supejova finished the season at No. 1 singles with a 26-9 overall record, including 6-2 in the MAC, and No. 1 doubles with a 21-13 overall record, 7-1 in conference play. The 26 victories were the most by an EMU student-athlete since Vanessa Frankowski went 29-6 during the 2007 campaign en route to winning MAC Freshman and Player of the Year accolades. The 2011-12 Eagles tied for third in the Mid-American Conference at 5-3 with a 9-15 overall record. Ray is counting on Supejova and senior Nino Mebuke to carry the load but will rely on Diana Davitaia as well, who will be competing in her second season at EMU. Freshman Maria Paula Ribero comes to EMU to help the Eagles. In her first year under coach Ray, she is expected to provide depth to the Green and White’s lineup. The Bucaramanga, Colombia native was ranked as high as No. 1,022 in singles and No. 944 in doubles in the World Professional Rankings by the Women’s Tennis Association. Ray had another stellar season as the Eagles’ head man came in his second campaign, when his 2007-08 team posted a 5-3 MAC mark good for a tie for third in the final league standings. Ray has a 62-95 overall record in six years as EMU’s head coach, including a 25-31 MAC mark. Now in his 10th overall year as an intercollegiate head coach, Ray has a 85-121 record. Under Ray’s guidance, EMU’s teams have not only performed well on the courts but also in the classroom as the team and individuals have earned top academic honors the past five years. Six out of seven of Ray’s teams have been singled out by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) for a Team All-Academic Award, given annually to an NCAA Division I team with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or better. 8

In addition to those All-Academic Team Awards, the Eagles have also produced 16 student-athletes over the past five seasons that have recorded ITA Individual All-Academic Awards with a 3.5 GPA or better. The 2009-10 and 2010-11 teams were also singled out by the NCAA for Public Recognition for scoring in the Top 10 percent in the Academic Progress Rate (APR) in women’s tennis. On the playing surface, Ray has directed several players to award-winning seasons. Vanessa Frankowski was named the MAC Player of the Year in 2006-07 on the way to a 48-17 singles and doubles record. Frankowski was a first-team All-MAC selection that year and earned a berth in the NCAA Championships. Teammate Yana Parfenyuk was a second-team All-League selection that year as well. Frankowski would go on to be a three-time MAC Player of the Week in 2008 (five total career honors) and she also was named a MAC Scholar-Athlete of the Week in 2007. She was a CoSIDA second-team All-District Academic selection. Ray has brought his recruiting talents from his previous stops to EMU, which he showed, impressively at Indiana State, by starting with a roster of two players and producing a team consisting of four players ranked in the top 200 in the world in junior play and a junior college All-American. Two of those players had multiple years of Davis Cup experience in their native countries. Ray also coached two doubles teams to national rankings as high as No. 43 and No. 54 during the 2005 season. During the 2002 and 2003 seasons Ray was the assistant men’s and women’s tennis coach at Saint Louis University. Ray helped the Saint Louis women’s team to its best Conference USA tournament finish in six seasons, and the men’s program improved its regional ranking from 13th to 5th. During the 2001 season, Ray served as the assistant men’s and women’s tennis coach at the University of Northern Iowa. While mainly responsible for the women’s program, he helped them reach a 15-5 record and a No. 68 national ranking, the first in school history. During the 1999 and 2000 seasons, Ray spent time as a volunteer coach at the University of Oklahoma where they obtained a No. 30 national ranking and No. 1 ranking in the central region. A four-year letterman at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, Ray was a member of the 1997 NCAA Div. II Regional qualifying team and received the 1997 Nebraska Collegiate Male Sportsmanship Award. Ray received Bachelor of Science degrees in Sports Administration and Business Administration from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 1998. He earned his Master of Science in Sport Management from the University of Oklahoma in 2000. Ray currently resides in Ypsilanti, Mich.

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located

Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, about 10 miles east of Ann Arbor, 40 miles west of Detroit and just 20 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport. It is an area rich in academic, research, technological and recreational resources. The University also has sites in Livonia, Jackson, Traverse City, Flint, Detroit and Monroe. EMU’s 800 plus-acre campus of scenic flora and wooded areas includes 18 miles of walkways and jogging trails and has 122 buildings throughout the academic and athletic campuses. Eagle Crest – Eastern Michigan’s conference center, golf course and resort – is located on the banks of nearby Ford Lake. Ypsilanti plays a leading role in industry and education. The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted more than 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique

In 1849, the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Michigan formally paved the way for the establishment of Michigan State Normal School, with the exclusive purposes of instructing persons in the art of teaching; providing a good common school education; and giving instruction in the mechanic arts, husbandry, agricultural chemistry and the laws of the United States. Since its inception, Eastern Michigan, first as a Normal School, then as a College and finally as a University, has grown and developed to respond to the ever-changing needs of society. Over the years, EMU has educated thousands of sons and daughters of Michigan, the nation, and the world. The University currently serves 23,000 students who are pursuing undergraduate, graduate, specialist, doctoral and certificate degrees in the arts, sciences and professions. In all, more than 200 majors, minors and concentrations are delivered through the University’s Colleges of Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; Health and Human Services; Technology, and its graduate school. Eastern Michigan’s exceptional faculty, students and alumni include CEOs from major businesses; a National Student Teacher of the Year, National Teacher of the Year, numerous Fulbright Scholars and Milken Family Foundation National Educators award winners; and several Michigan Teachers of the Year. EMU is regularly recognized by national publications for its excellence, diversity, and commitment to applied education.

Our Students

With nearly 23,000 students, EMU provides a rich learning environment for the campus community. The University currently has approximately 18,000 undergraduates and 5,000 graduate students. Our students represent 45 states and 93 foreign countries. Of undergraduate students, 72 percent are full time and 57 percent are women. The most popular majors are education, business, social sciences and history, science and engineering, English, and the health professions. EMU’s undergraduate population is approximately 65 percent white; 21 percent black; 2 percent international; 2.5 percent Asian-American; 2 percent Hispanic, 0.5 percent Native-American, and 7 percent not answered (i.e. elected not to respond to this inquiry). Eastern Michigan offers a number of special academic programs to help students succeed. These include the Honors College; the Holman Success Center; distance learning; accelerated format programs; online, weekend and evening programs and courses; American Humanics certification; Study Abroad Tours; a specialized master’s degree program for corporations offered onsite; a double master’s degree; online technologies for education and training. With more than 200 academic and social organizations, an extensive intramural sports program, 21 NCAA Division I-A sports and numerous cultural activities from which to choose, EMU students have diverse opportunities to become involved in campus life. Students’ on-campus housing choices range from traditional dormitorystyle rooms to apartments and include living/ learning center options.

Faculty/Staff

Eastern Michigan University employs nearly 700 full-time faculty and 1,000 staff members. Ninetyfour percent of EMU professors have doctoral degrees or terminal degrees in their field. The student to faculty ratio is 19:1. Faculty work closely with students, and many involve students in their research. Recently, the University celebrated its 30th annual Undergraduate Symposium; a benchmark program for undergraduate research.

Community Outreach

EMU’s Economic Impact

Since its founding in 1849, Eastern Michigan has provided quality services to the residents of Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County, the State of Michigan and other states and nations. EMU’s total impact on the Michigan economy of an estimated $3.7 billion annually reflects a return of more than $42 for each dollar received from the state. The University’s total impact on the Michigan economy results in a contribution of $166 million in state tax revenue. Thus, EMU’s impact on state government tax revenue is $1.87 in taxes for each dollar received from the state.

Eastern Michigan is making an impact nationally by channeling its academic research as a means of solving real-world problems. EMU currently has 14 research institutes and centers that focus on community building and civic engagement, quality, community and regional development, small business development, geospatial education, textiles, export assistance and product development. EMU is well known for merging theory and practice for the benefit of the community. Applied research leads to new knowledge, new jobs and new business. Annually, the university receives about $15 million in revenues for sponsored research and community service activities.

The Alumni Association

Representing more than 142,000 alumni and friends, the Alumni Association sponsors social and service-related programs for more than 20 geographically-based and special-interest alumni chapters.

toral programs. We strive to provide a student-focused learning environment that enhances the lives of students and positively impacts the community. We extend our commitment beyond the campus boundaries to the wider community through service initiatives, and public and private partnerships of mutual interest addressing local, regional, national and international opportunities and challenges.

Our History

1897: MSNS is the first U.S. teacher’s college to become a four-year institution.

When the state of Michigan was just 12 years old, Michigan State Normal School was designated by the state legislature as the first institution to educate teachers to serve the public schools. The University thus began, somewhat humbly, as the sixth teacher education institution in the nation. A campus that today comprises more than 800 acres was once a four-acre plot with one building and two programs of study – a classical course and an English Course. The school’s name has changed several times ­– to Michigan State Normal College in 1899; to Eastern Michigan College in 1956; and finally to Eastern Michigan University in 1959. During its first 100 years, the institution certified thousands of teachers and developed the broad-based curricula that ultimately prepared it for university status. Within that new university, three colleges emerged: Education, Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School. The University has since expanded three more times; adding the College of Business in 1964, the College of Health and Human Services in 1975 and the College of Technology in 1980. More recently Eastern Michigan has developed Extended Programs that include Continuing Education, the Centers for Corporate Training, the World College and numerous community-focused institutes. The University has enhanced its learning environment through structural initiatives during the past several years. Recent construction includes the Terrestrial and Aquatic Research Facility (1998), the Convocation Center (1998), the Bruce T. Halle Library (1998), the John W. Porter College of Education Building (1999), the Everett L. Marshall College of Health and Human Services Building (2000), the Village residence hall (2001), University House (2003) and the Student Center (2006).

Ypsilanti is a city in Washtenaw County with a population of 22,362. Originally a trading post established in 1809 by Gabriel Godfroy, a FrenchCanadian fur trader from Montreal, a permanent settlement was established on the east side of the Huron River in 1823 by Major Thomas Woodruff. It was incorporated into the Territory of Michigan as the village Woodruff’s Grove. A separate community a short distance away on the west side of the river was established in 1825 under the name “Ypsilanti”, after Demetrius Ypsilanti, a hero in the Greek War of Independence. Woodruff’s Grove changed its name to Ypsilanti in 1829, and the two communities eventually merged. Henry Ford and the automotive industry came to Ypsilanti in the 1930s and beautiful Ford Lake was created to generate hydroelectric power for the manufacturing plants. During World War II, Ypsilanti became home to the Willow Run Bomber Plant, a factory that would employ 100,000 workers.

This includes the “0, 0, 0” tuition, room and board freeze of 2010-

2011, in which Eastern was one of a handful of universities around the nation to not increase fees. Today, students pay only $32 more per credit hour than four years ago. Additionally, Eastern completed its first comprehensive fundraising campaign a year ahead of schedule. “Invest. Inspire. The Campaign for Eastern Michigan” surpassed its $50 million goal in the summer of 2012 and reached $56 million. The highly successful campaign set the tone for future efforts to benefit Eastern students. “I am thrilled to be chosen for the honor of leading this great University, which has a strong history of excellent education and a bright future,” said Martin. During her inaugural address Martin set fourth an ambitious vision for the university. The goals included building on the pillars of academic excellence, refreshing alumni relationships, comprehensive fundraising and earning the public’s trust. Prior to coming to EMU, Martin was the provost and vice-chancellor of academic affairs at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. The majority of Martin’s higher education career was at Grand Valley State Uni-

versity, where she taught and published as a professor of accounting and taxation. Martin served as director of the master of taxation program, director of international business programs, and chair of the accounting and taxation department. In June 2001, Martin joined the GVSU provost’s office and served in roles as assistant, associate, and executive associate vice president of academic affairs. One of her major duties in that office was to help manage the $154 million budget for the Academic Affairs Division. Before GVSU, Martin was deputy state treasurer for the Bureau of Local Government Services for Michigan from June 1981-June 1984. She also was the commissioner of revenue for the state of Michigan from 1985-1988. Martin received her doctoral degree in accounting from Michigan State University in 1988 and her master’s degree in accounting from MSU in 1976. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Central Michigan University in 1971. In 2009, Martin received the MSU Department of Accounting and Information Systems Alumna of the Year Award. Martin is a member of the board of directors of the Michigan Educational Trust as well as Ann Arbor SPARK, a non-profit organization that seeks to bring businesses to the Ann Arbor area.

NCAA Compliance The Eastern Michigan University Office of Athletics Compliance is committed to a comprehensive compliance program that educates student-athletes, prospective student-athletes, institutional employees, community members and boosters about the importance of adhering to NCAA, Mid-American Conference and institutional rules. The commitment to compliance ensures institutional control over the department of athletics. The existence of a successful compliance program depends on the willingness of coaches, administrators, staff, student-athletes and boosters to be cognizant of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. Recruiting Do's And Don'ts Only EMU coaches may be involved in the recruiting process. Boosters may not make any recruiting contacts with prospective studentathletes, Boosters are prohibited from the following: • Do not telephone, write or make in-person contact with a prospect for recruiting purposes • Do not contact a prospect's coach, principal or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect • Do not become involved in making arrangements for a prospect, the prospect's relatives or friends to receive money or financial aid of any kind • Do not visit a prospect's school to acquire films or transcripts in an attempt to evaluate the prospect's academic or athletics eligibility • Do not have contact with a prospect, their relatives or friends during any of their visits to EMU's campus • Do not contact student-athletes enrolled in other four-year institutions regarding the possibility of transferring to EMU Even though there are many rules prohibiting your involvement with prospects and the recruiting process, as a booster you are permitted to do the following: • Notify EMU coaching staff about noteworthy prospects in your area, • Attend a prospect's athletics event on your own initiative, provided no contact with the prospect, the prospect's parents or coach occurs, • Continue existing friendships, provided solicitation of a prospect's enrollment does not occur.

WHAT IS COMPLIANCE? At Eastern Michigan University, the Office of Compliance works within the department of athletics and the University to ensure EMU's compliance with all applicable NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. In doing so, the compliance office is charged with the following tasks: • Educating administrators, coaches, staff, prospective student-athletes, current student-athletes and boosters about NCAA, MAC and institutional rules; • Developing monitoring systems to ensure compliance with NCAA, MAC and institutional rules (e.g., recruiting, academic eligibility, financial aid, awards and benefits, amateurism and agents); • Investigating and reporting violations of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. ARE YOU A BOOSTER? You are a booster if you are or ever have: • Been a member of a booster organization that supports EMU athletics (e.g., EMU Athletic Club, E-Gridiron Group); • Made any financial contributions to the athletics department; • Been involved in promoting EMU's athletics program; • Been a season ticket holder; or • Provided benefits to enrolled student-athletes or their relatives or friends. You can become a booster if you provide benefits to prospects, student-athletes, their relatives or friends and any of the following statements are true: • The relationship between the athlete (or parents of the athlete) and the individual providing the benefits developed as a result of the athlete's participation in athletics or their reputation as an athlete; • The relationship began only after the athlete become a prospect; • The relationship began only after the athlete had achieved notoriety due to his or her athletic ability or reputation; • The pattern of benefits increased after the athlete attained notoriety as a talented athlete.

ONCE A BOOSTER ALWAYS A BOOSTER. Once an individual is identified as a booster, the person retains that identity forever! This is true even if the individual no longer contributes to, or is involved with, EMU's athletics program. WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete (prospect) is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade, students enrolled in preparatory schools and two-year colleges are also considered prospects. An individual remains a prospect even after he/she signs a National Letter of Intent. WHAT IS AN EXTRA BENEFIT? An extra benefit is any special arrangement by a EMU employee or booster to provide a prospect, student-athlete or their relatives or friends a benefit not expressly authorized by the NCAA. Examples of impermissible benefits include, but are not limited to, the following: • Gifts of cash, clothing, equipment or any other tangible item; • A special discount, payment arrangement or credit on any purchase or service; • Loan of money or co-signing of loans; • A vehicle, use of a vehicle, or any transportation expenses; • Free or reduced-cost services, purchases or rentals; • Entertainment on- or off-campus; or • Free or reduced-cost rent or housing. WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES? EMU is responsible for the actions of its boosters. If a booster provides an impermissible benefit to a prospect, student-athlete, their relatives or friends, EMU may be subject to penalties from the NCAA and Mid-American Conference. When a violation occurs, regardless of intention, it can: • Jeopardize the eligibility of prospective and current student-athletes; • Result in the EMU athletics program being penalized by the NCAA and/or the MidAmerican Conference; and • Cause you to lose benefits or privileges associated with the athletics department (i.e., booster club membership, ticket privileges). QUESTIONS? The above information is a brief overview of compliance and rules pertaining to boosters and their interactions with prospective studentathletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, MAC or institutional rules, please contact the Christopher Hoppe at 734.487.3263 or choppe3@emich.edu.

Student Athlete Support Student-Athlete Support Services

Academic, personal and professional support are essential to college success. At EMU, Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) helps student-athletes reach their full potential. Our philosophy is to offer an academic support program, integrated with the University, that will assist all student-athletes with their transition into college. This all-encompassing support continues throughout each student-athlete’s collegiate career, until the day he or she receives a diploma, lands a job or enters graduate school. Being proactive rather than reactive, our staff does not wait for an academic crisis to occur. We gather important background information and build an academic profile on each student-athlete, assessing his or her needs in advance. Services provided through SASS include the following: programs that focus on student-athletes’ special needs, monitoring academic performance, providing learning assistance, assisting with registration procedures, assisting in monitoring athletic eligibility, providing priority registration and making sure that athletes are advised about current NCAA, MAC and University rules and regulations. Freshmen and transfer student-athletes encounter a major transition when making the switch from high school or community college to a university. These students, while adjusting to their new routines, receive extra attention and support. College is not easy. But with hard work and dedication from both the studentathlete and the support staff, the student-athlete can have a successful college experience. The success of Eastern’s student-athletes hinges on their willingness to seek assistance from SASS as well as other University student services. SASS staff members continually refer student-athletes to the Admissions Office, Academic Advising Center, Career Services Center, Health Services, the Records Office, Financial Aid and The Holman Learning Center. Faculty members also provide assistance to student-athletes through advising in course selection and providing additional help with courses when requested.

Athletic Training and Sports Medicine

The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine Department has a long history and reputation for excellence in the health care of student-athletes and the education of athletic training students. Founding practitioners Gary Strickland, Ron Venis and Dr. Wally Roeser envisioned a goal of first-class prevention, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for all student-athletes. Although the department continues to grow, its primary mission remains the same. The student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics receive comprehensive health care from an expansive sports medicine team. The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine staff is led by Dr. Wally Roeser and head athletic trainer Steve Nordwall. Additionally, the staff consists of two primary care sports medicine fellows, three full-time staff athletic trainers, two full-time athletic training clinical educators, five graduate assistant athletic trainers. Our sports medicine staff works in conjunction with various medical professionals within the community who provide nutritional, dental, vision and other specialized services for our student-athletes. At Eastern Michigan University, the philosophy of the Sports Medicine staff is two-fold: to provide a high standard of medical care through effective preventive and management programs, and to facilitate an effective post-injury rehabilitation process for a safe return to competition. In all cases, the ultimate well-being of each student-athlete is considered our number one priority, not only while they compete at Eastern Michigan University, but during their lifetime as well. The Sports Medicine staff operates out of three campus athletic training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building.

Strength and Conditioning

The main focus of the EMU strength and conditioning program is to develop the complete student-athlete. Everything that is incorporated into the training program relates to success on the court. The program is not just about lifting weights, but rather the development of all aspects of athletic performance. These areas include speed, strength, quickness, agility, flexibility, explosion, sports nutrition and mental toughness. One of the main objectives of the program is to improve the players’ agility and speed. The goal is to develop stronger and more physical student-athletes without losing speed or flexibility. With that in mind, our staff focuses on improving strength in the “Power Zone.” Abdominal, lower back and hip strength are crucial for an athlete’s success. Increasing strength in these areas decreases the chance and severity of injury and assists in strength and power development. EMU athletes are pushed as much as possible to prepare for competition. The athletes are challenged through physically demanding and intense workouts year-round. The athletes are also challenged during each workout with some type of mental toughness/physical challenge. We train not only the physical side of the student-athlete, but also the mental and competitive side. While everyone lifts weights during the year, EMU Eagle student-athletes will also condition. This places us as one of the best conditioned teams in the country each year. Our goal is simple: Be the best conditioned/most physical team in the country. A highly motivated athlete is a program’s most valuable asset. Everyone in the country works on developing their athletes from the neck down, but at EMU, our program strives for excellence both mentally and physically. Our staff works to develop long-term and short-term goals for success. We work closely with the athletes so we know exactly what they are doing and what they need to do to improve. Developing athletes is a year-round task for our strength staff. During the year, the athletes will spend almost as much time in the weight room as they do on the court. Strength and Conditioning at EMU is a full-time commitment. There is no such thing as part-time champions. EMU athletes work hard but have fun. The camaraderie and work ethic developed in the weight room carry onto the field.

THE EMU IDENTITY Since the 1991 season, Eastern Michigan University athletic teams have gone by the nickname “Eagles.” The Eagles name was officially adopted on May 22, 1991, when the EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the existing Huron nickname and logo with the new one. EMU originally went by the nicknames “Normalites,”“Men from Ypsi”and various other titles through the years before “Hurons” was adopted in 1929. The “Hurons” first came into being as the result of a contest sponsored by the Men’s Union in 1929. On Oct. 31 of that year, a three-person committee, composed of Dr. Clyde Ford, Dr. Elmer Lyman and Professor Bert Peet, selected the name “Hurons” from the many entries in the contest. The name was submitted by two students, Gretchen Borst and George Hanner. Hanner was working at the Huron Hotel at the time of the contest and was no doubt as much influenced by his place of employment as by the Huron Indian tribe. The runner-up name in that contest was Pioneers. EMU began investigating the appropriateness of its Huron Indian logo after the Michigan Department of Civil Rights issued a report in October 1988 suggesting that all schools using such logos drop them. The report indicated that the use of Native American names, logos and mascots for athletic teams promoted racial stereotypes. At that time, four colleges, 62 high schools and 33 junior high/middle schools in Michigan used Indian logos or names. The EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the Huron name with Eagles, taken from three recommendations from a committee charged with supplying a new nickname. The other two final names submitted were Green Hornets and Express.

The Mid-American Conference Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference moves into its 67th year of service to the student-athlete. Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only ten football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in March of 2009. The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to seven its number of neutral site post season events – football (Ford Field, Detroit), volleyball (SPIRE Academy, Geneva, Ohio), men’s and women’s basketball (Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland), softball (Firestone Stadium, Akron) and baseball (All Pro Freight Stadium, Avon, Ohio). In addition, the SPIRE facility will also serve as the site for the 2014 women’s swimming & diving championship and 2015 men’s swimming & diving championship. In 2012, the MAC set a conference record with seven teams receiving a bowl invitation, including the first ever BCS Bowl invitation with Northern Illinois playing in the Discover Orange Bowl on Jan. 1, following a thrilling 44-37 double overtime win over Kent State in the 2012 Marathon MAC Football Championship game. The seven MAC programs that were extended bowl invitations included: Toledo (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl); Ball State (Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl St. Petersburg); Central Michigan (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl); Bowling Green (Military Bowl); Ohio (Advocare V100 Independence Bowl); Northern Illinois (Discover Orange Bowl) and Kent State (GoDaddy.com Bowl).
