The Mid-Atlantic Rifle Conference (MAC) is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) rifle-only conference. The MAC was established in 1978 for schools that sponsor NCAA sanctioned varsity rifle teams, but do not have rifle as a sponsored sport in their primary conferences, as well as for non-NCAA sanctioned collegiate club teams.[1]
