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.
