What’s Going To Happen

Eastern Michigan just can’t catch a break.

It’s playing hard, and it’s playing well, but it lost five straight all by seven points or fewer – losing them by an average of four points a game.

There’s still time to get to a bowl game with a really, really easy November. But if it loses to NIU, it’ll have to run the table.

The Huskies are on a three game winning streak with a showdown at Toledo up next for – most likely – the MAC West title. But first, they have to survive a strong EMU team desperate for something positive.

So what is EMU doing wrong? It can’t convert a third down try in any way. Last in the MAC in third down tries, it’s hitting on fewer than 30% of its tries. That’s not a positive against one of the nation’s best pass rushes led by Sutton Smith and his 8.5 sacks, and a D ranking second in the country in tackles for loss.

The Eagles have a nasty D of their own, and they’re going to keep the score low, but it’ll be another day, another brutally painful close loss.
