The Eagles of Eastern Michigan University got a much needed gridiron win over Miami of Ohio Wednesday night in Oxford, Ohio. The Eagles 27-24 win over the RedHawks came after a frustrating loss last week to MAC rival Central Michigan. In fact, it has been a frustrating season for not only the EMU football program, but for fans as well, including yours truly. Our 4-7 Eagles have suffered three overtime loses, not to mention the fact that all seven EMU loses have been determined by one score. Wednesday night's win was a confidence booster for an Eagles team that went to a bowl game last year.
Eastern Quarterback Brogan Roback completed 15 of 27 passes for 269 yards, while bruising EMU running back Ian Eriksen rushed for 112 yards on the ground. EMU'S Shaq Vann rushed for a respectable 53 yards.
Catch Eastern Michigan at Rynearson Stadium ( The Factory) next week on Tuesday, November 21 at 7 pm. Next Tuesday's game is Senior Day. So come on out a cheer on the EMU Eagles in their final game of the season.
