Poll: How will Virginia fare against Eastern Michigan?
Virginia and Eastern Michigan will square off for the first time on the gridiron on Saturday at Scott Stadium. The Cavaliers (2-4, 0-3 ACC) will look to regain some footing after having dropped three straight games. The Eagles (1-6, 1-3 MAC), on the other hand, will be aiming to start their first winning streak since the Reagan administration*. Eastern Michigan did, after all, defeat Ball State in overtime last week for its first victory in nearly 23 months.
* Just kidding. Kind of.
This game should be about confidence-building. It should provide opportunities for the offense to generate some sustained momentum and for the defense to get back on track. It should be nearly all positives for the Cavaliers.
Will it actually turn out that way? We won't know until tomorrow. But for now, take a moment to cast your vote in the following poll. As always, feel free to expand on your choice in the comments section below and/or email me your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
