Western Michigan wins 2016 Omnivore National Championship

After completing their 13-0 season and winning the Mid-American Conference championship, Western Michigan wins the 2016 Omnivore National Championship by virtue of being the highest ranked (Group of Five) team in the Omnivore rankings at the end of the regular season. Starting this year, the Omnivore rankings policy no longer counts post-season games as part of the national championship criteria. After a five-year hiatus from ranking, Western Michigan Broncos are the first team to be awarded the national title since our return.

Western Michigan is the first MAC team since Marshall in 2001 to win the Omnivore national championship.
