Friday nights are for MACtion.

The MAC has Tuesdays for football and has recently taken over Fridays — a typically slow day in hoops — for college basketball.

There’s an intriguing matchup between two top MAC teams tonight as the Ohio Bobcats travel up north to take on the Kent State Golden Flashes.

The Bobcats sit atop the conference with a 13-2 record and 22-4 overall. They are one of just two teams in the MAC that are ranked in the top 100 on KenPom. The two in-conference losses both came against Toledo, which is one game behind them in the standings.

The Golden Flashes sit in third in the conference with an 11-4 record and 16-9 overall. They are arguably the hottest team in the conference, having won their last seven games, and are coming off a massive win on the road at Toledo.

It’s one of the biggest games of the night and Action Network has tracked sharp action coming in on one side.
