The Eastern Michigan football team is 5-3 and two victories from being eligible to accept a bowl bid.
The college football prognosticators at Rivals.com believe it will happen. Eastern, it notes in its latest bowl projection article, has been to just one bowl in its history (1987).
For now, Rivals.com has the Eagles making it to the New Mexico Bowl against Wyoming. That's a 2 p.m. game on Dec. 17 (ESPN) if you're already setting up recorder.
The Eagles have won two consecutive games and are off this week before consecutive home games against Ball State and Buffalo. Eastern is 4-0 at home this season.
