Well, the second half went about like the first half...and then things got really bad.
If my count was correct, seven players -- two for EMU and five for Buffalo -- were ejected in the second half. Six of those came on a single play -- four during the play, and two dead-ball fouls immediately after.
With the backups in on both sides, Buffalo's scoring ground to a halt, and Ryan Brumfield ran 75 yards for a final EMU touchdown with 1:29 left.
But let's be honest, Buffalo was scoring a point a minute until they pulled their starters, and EMU was showing no sign of doing anything. This easily could have been more like 56-10.
Buffalo is now 3-2, their best start under Jeff Quinn (previous seasons were 2-3, 1-4, and 1-4), and heads to Kalamazoo to face another struggling opponent in the Broncos. Meanwhile in Ypsilanti the calls for athletic director Heather Lyke to fire Ron English just got a whole lot louder. Next week the Eagles will be back in New York to face Army...maybe.
