Ok, so we all know that Rutgers is probably one of the worst Power 5 teams in America, but so what! EASTERN MICHIGAN went on the road and beat a Big Ten team! It was also the team’s first win over any Power 5.
And that’s all that matters!
For the first time in program history, Eastern topped a B1G team. The Eagles are also 2-0 for the first time since 1995.
So how’d they do it? Defense.
The Eagles held the Scarlet Knights to 326 of total offense and also had two key interceptions.
Up next for Eastern is Ohio at home and then another winnable Power 5 game at Kentucky.
