Eastern Michigan football team is No. 105 in top-to-bottom ranking
The Eastern Michigan football program moved up 15 spots and is No. 105 in the country, according to the annual preseason college football countdown compiled by the Orlando Sentinel.
Eastern, 2-10 overall last season, was ranked last of the 120 teams in 2010 after compiling a winless season in 2009. The Sentinel says the Eagles "should see a continued improvement this season if Alex Gillett continues his development at quarterback."
Eastern opens the season Sept. 3 with a home game against Howard.
