Back-to-back bruisers appear on Eastern Michigan's 2011 football schedule

By Staff

On back-to-back weekends, the Eastern Michigan football team faces its two toughest games of the season.

On Sept. 17, the Eagles will make the cross-county trip to the Big House and face Michigan. Seven days later, they will go on the road to face Penn State.

The pair of games against traditional Big Ten powers complete Eastern Michigan's non-conference slate. The school released its full schedule Monday.

Here's the link to Eastern Michigan's complete 2011 football schedule.

Coach English is taking a big bite by scheduling these BigTen powers. I'd love to see 2 winning programs in Washtenaw Co. Hopefully, the addition of the dome will provide better off-season training. Hurons, Hurons, hats off to you!

I like the inclusion of the MAC Championship game on the schedule. Nothing like a little bit of optimism...

Jim Pryce and all others who think EMU should drop out of the VERY exclusive club of FBS football are complete fools. How in hades does dropping TWO levels of NCAA play (do NOT forget FCS schools) to Division 2 to face opponents like Saginaw Valley, Ferris State, Findlay, Northwood, and Tiffin (GLIAC schools) compare financially and in other vital ways? Go Eastern!

I am glad to see that EMU has a few winnable games on the schedule. They should leave the MAC & join the GLIAC or another small conference so they can compete against Hillsdale, Albion, etc.
