The Eastern Michigan Eagles have been selected to play in the Quick Lane Bowl marking their third bowl appearance in four years. On Thursday, December 26, EMU will take on the University of Pittsburgh in the 6th annual Quick Lane Bowl at Ford Field. EMU and the Mid American Conference made the announcement on Sunday, December 8. Ypsilanti, and the EMU community couldn't be happier.
The Pitt Panthers play in the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) and finished the season at 7-5. Eastern Michigan, out of the Mid American Conference, finished 6-6 after knocking off Illinois from the Big Ten in the second game of the season.
In 2016 EMU played in the Bahamas Bowl losing to Old Dominion. Last year EMU took on Georgia Southern in the Camellia Bowl in Montgomery, Alabama, losing a close one by the score of 23-21.
