Eastern Michigan (0-10, 0-6) scored first on Saturday on Alex Gillett's 4-yard run, set up by Chris May's interception and return to the Western Michigan 15. But Hiller came back with a pair of touchdown passes to Matt Stevens and another to Chad Baliko as the Broncos took a 28-7 lead late in the second quarter.
The Eagles, in their home finale, scored before the half on Gillett's 12-yard pass to Kinsman Thomas, making it 28-14.
Hiller and Robert Arnheim put the game out of reach when they connected on a 65-yard TD pass midway through the fourth quarter.
Gillett ran for 132 yards and threw for 186 for the Eagles.
