Eastern Michigan University kicks off the 2019 football season on Saturday, August 31, against Coastal Carolina at Brooks Stadium in Conway, South Carolina. Saturday's game marks the first time EMU has played Coastal Carolina.
This is an exciting time to be a EMU football fan as the Eagles have been selected for a bowl game twice in the last three years. Eastern is in the midst of their best three year stretch in program history. This says a lot about head coach Chris Creighton and his staff. EMU football fans, including yours truly, are thrilled with the success coach Creighton has brought to the university.
This year there is much excitement surrounding Eastern Michigan senior quarterback Mike Glass. Coach Creighton recently named Glass as the starting quarterback. Glass is a double threat because this guy can throw with accuracy, and run. In last season's Camellia Bowl Glass threw three touchdown passes.
Listen to Saturday's game on WEMU Ypsilanti 89.1 FM or watch it live on ESPN +. Kick off is at 3:30.
