After playing some great football against Charlotte, Wyoming, and Miss Valley State, the Eastern Michigan Eagles will take the show on the road this week to Bowling Green Ohio for a Saturday afternoon matchup against the Falcons.
Quarterback Todd Porter has had some difficulties so far with more interceptions than touchdown passes, but this week could be just what he needs to get things turned around.
Bowling Green was able to come up with a victory against North Dakota, but other than that they have looked horrible this season in their other three losses.
In the three games they have been defeated, the Falcons have lost by a total of 161 points.
They are two points underdogs this week and will be trying to pull the upset over the Eagles.
Bowling Green Falcons
The Falcons were beat up pretty bad last week 77-3 by the Memphis Tigers. Both James Morgan and James Knapke struggled to find any success at the quarterback position for Bowling Green.
Between the two of them they threw four interceptions against the Memphis defense. The running game wasn’t much better, only gaining 91 yards on 28 carries.
The Falcons defense gave up 635 total yards to the Tigers and were unable to find an answer for quarterback Riley Ferguson.
Ferguson finished the game with a total of seven touchdowns.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eagles found a way to come out on top last week against the Wyoming Cowboys 27-24.
The Eastern Michigan defense was able to get an interception in both of Wyoming’s final two positions in order to put the game out of reach.
The Eagles offense ended up throwing a total of four interceptions and had to rely on their running game.
Ian Erickson rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries in the game.
He was able to find the endzone with just over a minute left in the game to put the Cowboys away. Eastern Michigan’s defense was stingy against the urn and only allowed Wyoming 79 yards on the ground off of 38 carries.
The win put them at 3-1 for the season which is the team’s best start since 1995.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction
The Falcons need their defense to come up big against an Eastern Michigan team that has a strong ground attack on offense.
If Bowling Green can play strong against the weak passing game of the Eagles, they may have a chance at building enough momentum to get the win at home.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Eastern Michigan +2
Eastern Michigan is clearly the stronger and more dominant team and should have no problem winning and covering the spread on the road.
Even with the struggles they have had in the passing game, the Eagles should have no problem putting points on the board and doing so quickly against Bowling Green’s defense.
