The team's all-time passing leader played in the Mid-American Conference. So did its all-time sacks leader.

Ben Roethlisberger, the team's all-time passing leader played at Miami (Ohio). James Harrison, the teams' all-time sacks leader, is a product of Kent. The list goes on and on with players the Steelers have plucked out of that conference.
In fact, they've now selected a player out of the MAC in five consecutive drafts.
