Eastern Michigan Eagles College Football InfoThe Eagles are returning 13 starters this year under 5th year head coach Chris Creighton after finishing the season 5-7 SU and 10-3 ATS last year. They will start Iowa grad transfer Tyler Wiegers at quarterback, replacing a school record holder in Brogan Roback. Eastern Michigan had 9 games decided by 7 points or less last year as they look to compete for a bowl game this year.
Though they have won a total of ten conference titles, only one of those has been at the Division I level where they claimed the Mid-American Conference in 1987. Prior to that, Eastern Michigan had won nine additional conference championships across the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association, Michigan Collegiate Conference and Illinois Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
Eastern Michigan has played in a total of three bowl games - the 1971 Pioneer Bowl, 1987 California Bowl and the 2016 Bahamas Bowl. They are 1-2 SU overall in those games. George Allen, a former graduate who went on to have an illustrious career as a coach with the Los Angeles Rams and the Washington Redskins but never played for the Eagles themselves, is the school's only member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
