In their first 8 games, Ron English has led Eastern Michigan to a 5-3 record. Their only losses have come against Michigan, Penn State, and Toledo. Eastern hasn't won 5 games in a season since 1995. They only won 10 games total from 2006-2010 (5 seasons).
With four conference games yet to play, English has already led Eastern Michigan to their first 5 win season in 16 years, and has them in great shape to reach their first bowl game since 1987.
After their 14-10 against Western Michigan, the Eagles hoisted the MAC Michigan trophy, presented to the Michigan team that comes out on top during in state conference games.
Great job to English and the rest of the Eastern Michigan staff.
