Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eastern Michigan Eagles could have a huge upset game on their mind as they take on the Boilermakers who looked flat in the first week of the season. If the Boilermakers continue to look flat, the Eagles could have the potential to cover the spread or even take the game with their fast paced tempo offense.
In their win against the Monmouth Hawks, it was a 51-17 blowout win as the offensive stars continued to showcase why they deserve to keep it going underneath the lights. Let’s start with quarterback Tyler Wiegers who passed for 238 yards along with only missing four of his attempts. One of the reasons why Wiegers was able to open the passing game was due to a stellar running game that blew the game wide open.
On the ground for the Eagles, the team finished with a total of 160 rushing yards. It was led by running back Ian Eriksen who had a total of 44 rushing yards, but a total of nine running backs would line up in the game to help out the team. The Eagles must open up the playbook a bit more if they want to take down the Boilermakers.
The Purdue Boilermakers had everything lined up to open the season with a win against the Northwestern Wildcats, however it did not line up at the end as they would fall in the opening week by the final score of 31-27. A rebound game is necessary especially against a winnable game against the Eagles of Eastern Michigan.
One of the reasons why the Boilermakers were never able to get back into it was the performance by quarterback Elijah Sindelar. The veteran quarterback had a great spring and won the starting job, however was quickly replaced in the game. Sindelar finished the game with throwing for 196 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions
Backup quarterback David Blough tried to step in to calm down the fire however his 74 passing yards was not close for the comeback win.
