Live it up, Eastern Michigan Eagles.

EMU has been one of the biggest surprises in college football this season. After winning just seven games in the past four seasons combined, the Eagles notched seven wins in 2016 alone. As a result, they’re bowl bound.

Understandably, this is an exciting time for Eastern Michigan football. Watch below as the Eagles find out they’re headed to the Popeye’s Bahamas Bowl:

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
