This was the Western Michigan football field before Saturdays game against Eastern Michigan.

This is what the same field looked like on Saturday morning.

The Eastern Michigan team probably wished the snow was still on the field to make this game remotely close. The Western Michigan Broncos beat the Eagles 51-7 today.

While the win seemingly came easy to Western Michigan, a big game note was the injury to Freshman running back Jarvion Franklin about 6 minutes into the 2 quarter. The word on Franklin is an ankle injury but he did leave the field under his own power yet, didn’t return to the game.

With Franklin down the Broncos sophomore quarterback Zach Terrell had a passing field day. Terrell finished the game with 357 yards and 4 touch downs before being pulled in the third for freshman Cameron Thomas.
