Rumblings: The first thing you notice about Eastern Michigan is that it’s last in the FBS allowing 373.3 rushing yards a game, topped by the 556 yards the Eagles allowed Saturday in a loss to previously winless Army.
On offense, briefly: This isn’t the problem. Jackson has 407 rushing yards, a 6.9-yard average and seven TDs. Daugherty averages 19.6 yards per catch while hauling in two of Roback’s five TDs.
On defense, briefly: EMU should get ready to receive a heavy dose of Leonard Fournette. The Eagles allow 6.7 yards per carry, and Fournette averages 8.6 yards per attempt.
