PJ Fleck and the Western Michigan Broncos had themselves quite the moment on Friday night, holding off the Ohio Bobcats to finish the regular season with an undefeated record and the MAC Championship.
Western Michigan clinched its first conference title since 1988 with a 29-23 victory.
As you would expect, the always entertaining Broncos head coach and his players had an epic celebration after winning the championship, complete with rowing the boat and crowd surfing in the locker room. Fleck even hung from the ceiling while his players cheered on.
Luckily, Western Michigan documented part of the celebration for our viewing pleasure.

Western Michigan has been a pleasure to watch all season, and it will be great to see them one final time during the bowl season.
If everything goes well for the Broncos, we should see them earn a New Year’s Six bowl game appearance against one of the perennial college football powerhouses. Then we will learn just how well the unbeaten Broncos stack up against the rest of the nation.
As for Fleck, he could find himself in line for a pay raise or a Power Five job after the season.
