1. College Football News Preview 2020: Eastern Michigan Eagles Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
Yeah, yeah, yeah, there are more bowl games now and the bar has been lowered to get into one, but Eastern Michigan has gone to three of them under head coach Chris Creighton.
The program had gone to two before his arrival.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, EMU didn’t win any of those three bowls, and yeah, yeah, yeah, the program has yet to win more than seven games in any of his six seasons and haven’t played for a MAC title.
However, EMU has won six games or more in three of the last four seasons. Before this run, the program had three seasons with six wins or more from 1989 until 2015.
Eastern Michigan football was the free space date on the schedule for a long, long time, but those days are gone. Now it’s okay to set the expectations a bit higher, but it’s still going to be a fight – and a big deal – to get to six wins again and go bowling.
Set The Eastern Michigan Eagles Regular Season Win Total At … 5.5
The running game has to be better, the pass rush has to be better, the offense has to be better, the defense has to be better, and …
The team should still be good enough to get to six wins.
It has to take down Coastal Carolina, Northern Illinois and Bowling Green at home. Start with those three games, demand road victories over Ball State or Ohio, and then hope to sneak in another win before the regular season finale at Miami University.
Get to six wins for a fourth time in five years, and it’ll be the best run for Eastern Michigan football since coming up with four straight winning seasons from 1986 to 1989.
