Marathon sponsors Miami / BG Game

We all know Miami is going to roll over BG!

Marathon Brand is the presenting sponsor of the 2003 Mid-American Conference (MAC) Football Championship Game to air live tonight at 7 p.m. on ESPN 2 from Bowling Green.

The game matches the Miami RedHawks (11-1), champions of the MAC East Division and currently ranked No.13 in the BCS poll, and the nationally-ranked Bowling Green Falcons (10-2), champions of the West. Ben Roethlisberger, a former Findlay High School standout and current Heisman Trophy candidate will guide the RedHawks as quarterback.

The game will be introduced as “The MAC Football Championship Game presented by Marathon, an American Company Serving America.” While you watch, be on the lookout for Marathon brand field signage and message board announcements. This will be the first time in league history that the MAC football championship game has partnered with a presenting sponsor.

“We worked closely with ESPN to explore this opportunity with the Mid-American Conference,” said Mary Ellen Peters, Sr. Vice President of Marketing for MAP. “Our company has a strong presence in the Midwest, the heart of the MAC geography. We’re looking forward to a great game.”

    I just thought it was cool that Marathon sponsored the BG / Miami game. I especially enjoyed the score at the end of the game. :-)
