Ypsilanti, MI – University of Florida officials today announced the start time for Saturday's Eastern Michigan-Florida football game has been moved to 1 p.m. The game was originally scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
Gainesville suffered major power outages this past weekend when Hurricane Frances passed through. With some street lights and traffic signals still lacking power, officials feel fans will be safer driving to and from an afternoon game than a night game.
YPSILANTI – To win its opener against Buffalo last Thursday, the Eastern Michigan football team needed, and received, contributions from all three units.
"It was a great win from a unity perspective," head coach Jeff Genyk said Tuesday. "To have a game like that where the offense picked up the defense, and the defense picked up the offense, and the special teams created a long field (for Buffalo's offense), was very impressive and it was great for the kids. It's a tremendous building block."
