The MAC title game has been played at Ford Field since 2004. From 1997 to 2003, it was played at campus sites.
Eastern Michigan -- the MAC school closest to the downtown Detroit stadium -- is one of four teams (out of 12) that hasn't played in the game since it moved to Ford Field.
This year's game is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30.
