Central Michigan Completes Comeback, Defeats Eastern Michigan

YPSILANTI — Central Michigan failed to score a touchdown in the first three quarters, relying on the leg of Marshall Meeder to keep them within 14 points entering the fourth. Central Michigan then scored three touchdowns in the fourth to defeat Eastern Michigan, 31-23.

The run game stepped up for the Chippewas, especially after losing their quarterback Daniel Richardson in the second quarter to injury. Lew Nichols rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns in the fourth, while Kobe Lewis added 106 rushing yards and a touchdown that put them up by eight.

Central Michigan improves to 3-1, and the Chippewas will play Ball State next Saturday. The kickoff time has not been announced yet.
