From EMUEagles.com: The Eastern Michigan University football team battled hard, but ultimately fell in a 24-20 defeat to the University of Kentucky Saturday evening, Sept. 30, at Kroger Field. EMU and UK were deadlocked at 14 going into the half, but the Eagles were unable to overcome second half miscues in the four-point loss. 

Eastern's (2-2, 0-1 MAC) defense carried the day for the fourth consecutive game, limiting UK's (4-1, 1-1 SEC) offense to 228 yards of total offense, including just 53 on the ground. The Eagles actually out-gained the Wildcats by a final tally of 312-228.
