Eastern Michigan University is bowl eligible after knocking off MAC foe the University of Akron Saturday at Rynerason Stadium in Ypsi. EMU's stellar defense paved the way for a convincing 27-7 victory for the Eagles of Eastern Michigan. EMU  stifled Akron by holding their offense to only 90 yards of total offense and no touchdowns. With one game remaining, the 6-5 Eagles are bowl eligible for the second time since 2016 when EMU played in the Bahamas Bowl.

Offensively for EMU, Quarterback Tyler Wiegers completed 15-23 passes for 129 yards and senior runningback Ian Eriksen rushed for a respectable 96 yards on 15 carries.

After a bye week Eastern will travel to Kent, Ohio to take on the Kent State Flashes on November 23 to close the season

Congratulations to EMU Football! As a long-time EMU Football season ticket holder I'm excited!



  1. Just to bee on the safe side, I'd like to see EMU knock off Kent State. 7 and 5 looks a lot better than 6 and 6. Just ask Buffalo.
