1920 - Final Record: 6-2-1

The 1920 Muncie Offers More AC were a new team in 1920, but proved to be one of the strongest teams in the Gas Belt region. Scheduling their first 7 games on the road, due to the APFA Muncie Flyers having already booked Walnut Park for their games, the OMAC's returned back to Muncie having won 4 games and tied 1 other game. No scores could not be found for 2 other games, against Richmond and Huntington.

By mid-November, the OMAC's were in the race for the Indiana state championship. Decisive wins over Hartford City and the Piqua (OH) team, brought their record to 6-0-1 (5-0-1 in-state record). Next up was a home game against the Sheridan team. Sheridan had been fielding teams since almost the turn of the century. Sheridan won the Thanksgiving game, 16-2, and effectively knocked the OMAC's out of the state championship race. Undaunted, the OMAC's challenged the recently reorganized Muncie Flyers to a game to settle the Muncie city championship.

The Flyers outclassed the OMAC's 24-0 to claim the city championship. The OMAC's finished the season with a very respectable 6-2-1 record and proved to be one of the stronger independent teams in the state.

In the Huntington paper, the team was referred to as "Muncie OMAC of DePaw University", and also referred to as the "Portland Offers More" team.
