Offensively, 24 points ain't great. But it's what Mr. Adler was hoping for in terms of a defensive performance for Eastern Michigan.
The scoring was a little scattered: BGSU had a halfback pass from Jordan Hopgood to Shaun Joplin and Chris Jones rumbled a fumble into the end zone. Andre Givens also ran a touchdown in from 27 yards out.
A scary moment: Givens was led off the field in an ambulance but reports indicate he never lost consciousness and has movement in all his extremities.
After an offensive explosion out of nowhere, EMU was held under 200 offensive yards, but three turnovers and 3-for-12 on third down will do that to you. Quietly BGSU has allowed just 33 points in their last five games and the last touchdown scored on them was 10 quarters ago (Miami). But in 11 days they travel to Athens to face the Ohio Bobcats.
Eastern Michigan gets the same Ohio team next Thursday in weeknight cation.
