What you need to know
Given their significant shortfall in spread, the Eastern Michigan Eagles can expect to face the real test on Saturday. They will hit the road for the second week in a row, heading to Sun Devil Stadium, Frank Kush Field at 11:00 pm ET.
Things couldn’t get much worse for EMU as they lost 49-21 to the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns last week. The Eagles were leading 14 by the end of the half, but were unable to hold the lead. The losing side was reinforced by WR Tanner Knue, who caught nine passes for one TD and 97 yards.
Meanwhile, the Sun Devils of Arizona scored first, but ended up less than the Oklahoma Cowboys in their game last week. ASU suffered a hard fall 34-17 against Oklahoma State. The Arizona State loss came despite a quality play by RB Hazavian Valladai, who rushed for one touchdown and 118 yards on 21 carries.
Since both teams have had disappointing results in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to get a better result in this one. Having given up five passes, EMU had a hard time holding the ball. Let’s see if ASU can exploit this vulnerability.
