Hosting the Mid-American Conference Championships is a huge honor, but having a chance to win the conference title is something even more exciting.

Ohio (7-6, 3-4 Mid-American Conference) won a mere three matches and simply was overmatched by Buffalo (10-12, 5-3 MAC) in the final dual of the season for both teams.

As Ohio strolled into East Lansing, Michigan, it understood the tall task that was ahead.
