E. Michigan holds off Bowling Green 28-25
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) Breck Turner ran for 107 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries to help Eastern Michigan stave off Bowling Green 28-25 on Saturday.
Brogan Roback threw for 91 yards and three touchdowns for the Eagles (4-1, 2-0 Mid-American), who have won three straight.
Jake Suder drilled a 32-yard field goal for Bowling Green (1-4, 0-1) which broke a 7-7 tie midway through the third. However the Eagles seized control from there, scoring touchdowns on back-to-back drives to take a two-possession lead. Roback found Isaac Holder from 8-yards out for the first score, followed by a 7-yard TD pass to Nigel Kilby.
A Fred Coppet 2-yard touchdown run for the Falcons cut the deficit to 28-25 late, but a 10-play Eagles' drive killed the clock.
Coppet had 141 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
