The Eastern Michigan Eagles have had a long, disappointing and heartbreaking season. Eagles players have had to play through the death of one of their teammates and then firing of their head coach. The Eagles showed they still have fight left when they beat rival Western Michigan two weeks ago in overtime.
The win against Western set up the Eagles for a showdown against rival Central Michigan for the Michigan MAC trophy next week.
Before they get to that game however they must take on the Bowling Green Falcons. The Falcons are 5-1 in the MAC and are just one game behind Buffalo for the lead in the MAC Eastern division.
The Falcons have a lot to play for and with a defense ranked #6 in points allowed (15.1), the Eagles have a steep mountain to climb if they want to beat the Falcons at home.
The only hope for the Eagles is that Bowling Green is looking past them to their match-up against Buffalo November 29th. The winner of that game will advance to play in the MAC championship game.
It is a long shot but for a team with heart and a lot to prove, sometimes all you need is a long shot.
