The Eastern Michigan Eagles and the Old Dominion Monarchs will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Thomas Robinson Stadium.

ABOUT EASTERN MICHIGAN (7-5, 4-4 MAC): The Eagles may not have leading running back Ian Eriksen (741 yards rushing, nine touchdowns) who missed the team’s regular season finale with an undisclosed injury and remains listed as questionable. Pat O’Connor paced the Eastern Michigan defense, which allowed 30.3 points per game, with eight sacks to set the school’s career mark with 19.5. The Eagles finished fourth in the MAC’s West Division and were outscored by 27 points in conference play but cemented their bowl bid with a late come-from-behind victory over Central Michigan and won seven games for the first time since 1989.

ABOUT OLD DOMINION (9-3, 7-1 Conference USA): Coach Bobby Wilder guided the Monarchs since 2007 and is rumored to be on the Temple short list after Matt Rhule took the Baylor job. Ray Lawry powered the Old Dominion running game amassing 1,122 yards and 11 touchdowns and capped his junior campaign with a career-high 194 yards and three scores in a 42-28 victory over Florida International. Linebacker TJ Ricks became the first defensive player in school history to earn first-team All-Conference USA honors, leading the team with 93 tackles, and Zach Pascal and Jonathan Duhart both caught eight touchdown passes.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Monarchs listed as 6-point favorites versus the Eagles, while the game’s total is sitting at 63.5 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42.

1. A pair of postseason strangers face off when Eastern Michigan meets Old Dominion in the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl in Nassau, Bahamas, on Dec. 23. While the Monarchs have never played in a bowl game, the Eagles make their first appearance in 29 years. The two teams are no strangers to each other, however, as Old Dominion defeated Eastern Michigan in a shootout on the road last season 38-34, getting a 45-yard touchdown run with 1:57 to play for the winning margin.

2. Chris Creighton directed the turnaround for Eastern Michigan, which won a combined three games in his first two years with the program. Creighton took over for coach Ron English, who was fired after addressing his team with what the school’s administration deemed as “wholly inappropriate language” in 2013. Quarterback Brogan Roback fuels the offense, throwing for 2,394 yards with 16 touchdowns and he passed for 468 yards and three scores in the Eagles’ bowl-clinching win over Ball State earlier in the season.

3. Old Dominion’s only loss in Conference USA play came to Western Kentucky but it proved to spell the end of its title hopes as both teams finished 7-1 in conference play. The Monarchs averaged 36 points per game (27th in the FBS) led by David Washington, who is one of four FBS quarterbacks to have thrown for 25 touchdown passes with four or fewer interceptions. Washington threw for 2,648 yards overall while completing 59.7 percent of his passes for the Monarchs, who ride a five-game winning streak all of which came by double figures.

Old Dominion was a 42-28 winner in its last match at home against Golden Panthers. They earned a push of the -14-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 70 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Eastern Michigan, they were a 26-21 winner as they battled Chippewas at home. Eastern Michigan covered in the match as a +0-point underdog, while 47 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
