Eastern Michigan to face South Alabama in 2023 68 Ventures Bowl

The Eastern Michigan Eagles (6-6, 4-4 MAC West) managed to find their way to the postseason after some trials and tribulations, earning an opportunity to play the South Alabama Jaguars (6-6, 4-4 Sun Belt Conference) at the 2023 68 Ventures Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.

The Eagles did not play a lot of pretty football in 2023, finishing in the low 100’s in offense, while playing a lot of bad defense early in the season before clamping down in conference play to finish as a middling group. They did, however, manage to persevere throughout the season, keeping turnovers low (15 lost) while gaining enough takeaways (18) to generate a positive turnover margin.
