Biggest Football Win in EMU History: 1987 Cal bowl or 2017 Rutgers?
I'm debating whether or not our victory to become 1987 MAC champs, 1987 Cal bowl champs or today's victory over Rutgers is the biggest win in program History.

I would have to say the win over Rutgers is our biggest win in EMU Football History.

Out of curiosity, what sayeth you??

Oh God no question, California Bowl. San Jose State was a really good team too. Rutgers most likely won't win a Big 10 game this season. Still both wins are great for completely different reasons.

I'll take the cal bowl. I'm loyal to that era of my life. This win is huge though in terms of getting attention. EMU fb needs that. Maybe even Mlive will show up (And I hope CC kicks them to the curb).

Cal Bowl, but hopefully this is just the start of a season that leads us to an even greater win.

Dear Luckeyone,
I would have to say the California Bowl because Eastern was a big underdog, and yet, was able to pull the upset over San Jose State.

Luckily Coach Creighton will take the high road and not ban the media from covering the team if they are so inclined. He already got the last laugh by erm...WINNING!!!

I dunno Bob, Illinois, Northwestern, Minnesota, and if Indiana or Purdue get bitten by the injury bug, Rutgers could win.

I believe Rutgers win at least two games in the B1G although I have not checked their schedule.

Actually I'd take the Michigan trophy indicating wins against WMU and CMU.

And we've beat B10 in men's basketball several times and it hasn't defined or improved the visibility of that program.

Still beating Rutgers hopefully is the start of regularly beating P5 schools.

Dear Luckeyone,
Rutgers plays Nebraska, Maryland, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, and can't remember the others, but I don't see many wins with the teams I listed.
