The Eastern Michigan Eagles completed the 2016 football season with a very respectable 7-5 record after defeating formidable rival Central Michigan last week in a thriller at Rynearson Stadium here in Ypsilanti.
The news gets even better. Our EMU Eagles are headed to a bowl game for the first time since 1987. The tough part right now is that the EMU must wait until December 4 to find out which bowl game they will be playing in. Word is that the announcement will be made no later than December 4.
So where could our Eagles of Eastern Michigan be headed? Here is the complete list according to Eastern Michigan Football. The Raycom Media Camellia Bowl, Miami Beach Bowl, Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, Popeyes Bahamas Bowl, and the Dollar General Bowl.
As an EMU alum I cannot wait for the December 4 bowl game selection announcement. The Bahamas sure sound good though!
