What's in the satchel, Fluellen? Touchdowns, probably. (AP)

A felicitous MACtion Tuesday to you all. Cleanse your spirit before the holiday binging begins in earnest with some sprightly weeknight college football, why don't you?

• What information do I, the discerning sports fan, require in order to consume this game? The Zips and Rockets are scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. ET in the Glass Bowl. The game will be televised on ESPN2 and streamed on WatchESPN.

• What's at stake here? For the Rockets, it's time to smile pretty for the bowl scouts. Toledo's out of the MAC West race thanks to last week's loss to Northern Illinois, but we can personally report that Boise is lovely in the wintertime. A win tonight would mark the 20th career conference victory for this class of departing seniors. On the other end of the see-saw, feet dangling in the air, Akron still seeks its first 2012 win over an FBS team. The Zips' lone victory this season was a 66-6 thrashing of Morgan State, way back in Week 3. If series leads crank your tractor, tonight will also break an 8-8 all-time tie between these two programs.
