Eastern Michigan has two problems in 2013 which are an offense that has struggled to move the chains and find the end zone that has combined with a defense that has allowed too much real estate and too many points. The Eagles picked up their second win of the season with a 35-32 overtime decision over Western Michigan. Its far from easy with EMU tying the game with 51 seconds left with a touchdown and two point conversion. The Broncos had the better of this one until late with a 468-400 edge in yardage with Eastern Michigan doing their damage on the ground with 264 yards and six yards per touch. Ryan Brumfield ran for 149 yards and a pair of TD's with Bronson Hill adding another 108 yards and a score. Brogan Roback was just effective enough, going 9-22 for 136 yards with a TD and pick.
This is one where caution is the word with Bowling Green needing to win to face Buffalo for the East crown. The question here is whether the Falcons get a lead and take their foot off the gas so do with this as you will...
