Ypsilanti, MI – Of all the outstanding performances in Saturday's four-overtime thriller between Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan, Eric Deslauriers' stood out.
EMU's sophomore wide receiver repeatedly broke away from double coverage to get open and make game-extending plays for the Eagles. He finished the marathon game with 14 catches for 207 yards, four touchdowns, and a two-point conversion. Deslauriers leads the nation, averaging 127.9 receiving yards per game.

Ypsilanti, MI – Prior to the season, Eastern Michigan's coaches and players broke from their ususal "one game at a time" mantra to highlight one game on the 2004 schedule: Saturday's Mid-American Conference matchup against Central Michigan at Ford Field in Detroit (4:15 p.m. on 89.1, WEMU).
Ypsilanti – As his team prepares to take on Bowling Green Saturday, Eastern Michigan head football coach Jeff Genyk knows it will take a great performance just to stay competitive with the 5-2 Falcons. However, he wants his players to avoid "pressing" too much.
"We have to execute. We don't have to play perfect. But we have to execute on offense, defense and special teams to give us a chance to be in the game in the fourth quarter," Genyk said Tuesday. "It's going to take our best effort just to get us to the fourth quarter."

Ypsilanti, MI – After seeing his team pull out two straight road wins, each requiring precise play and a bit of luck late, Eastern Michigan head coach Jeff Genyk has gently incorporated a new mission into the Eagles' preparation. Play smarter football.
Ypsilanti, MI – The unfortunate reality of Eastern Michigan's recent football history is that the Eagles have fallen into several noteworthy losing streaks.
Last week, EMU made a serious move toward erasing that negative history with a 31-24 win at Ball State--the Eagles' first road win since 1999. Saturday's game at Western Michigan (12:15 p.m. on 89.1, WEMU) offers EMU the chance to halt a seven-game skid against the Broncos.

Ypsilanti, MI – With Ball State tailback Adell Givens pounding away, and wide receiver Dante Ridgeway finding open seams, the Cardinals scored 14 third-quarter points and took a 24-21 lead into the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan. No one would have been surprised if the Eagles dropped their third straight heartbreaker.
Instead, EMU mounted a strong defensive fourth-quarter, and finished the Cardinals off.
Ypsilanti, MI – Eastern Michigan head coach Jeff Genyk expects his team to be involved in more close games this season--and soon.
"I would imagine that our game (this Saturday) against Ball State will come down to the last series," Genyk said, three days after EMU dropped its second-straight close game, a 45-41 decision to Idaho. "I'll be surprised if they blow us out or if we blow them out. I would imagine that in the fourth quarter, it's going to be a seven to ten (point) game either way, and we'll see who wants it the most."
