Halftime: Ohio 24, Eastern Michigan 14

It's a game that feels like Eastern should be in it. But "should" has been a very 2012ish word to describe the Eagles.

EMU was held to a field goal and touchdown through the first 14 minutes of the quarter and also forced an interception on a terrific diving grab by Devin Patterson, but they couldn't run any clock off trying to score, had to punt, and a broken tackle in the secondary resulted in another touchdown for the Bobcats.

Instead of Beau Blankenship, it's been Ryan Boykin getting the call, and OHIO has been running on third and long and converting with regularity. Boykin ran 57 yards on a 3rd and 13 up the middle. Yep. He has 12 carries for 97 yards and Tyler Tettleton has thrown two touchdowns. Wide receiver Landon Smith was helped off the field with a nasty ankle injury, and he didn't put any pressure on it.

Ryan Brumfeld is having a huge game as well, rushing for a touchdown, giving him two on the day. Alex Gillett leads the team with two receptions, which is an odd thing to say but here we are. Bronson HIll leads the Eagles with 13 carries for 66 yards.

Also, an Eastern Michigan punt bounced DIRECTLY OFF A PLAYER'S HEAD.
