YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Freshman Josh Grant got a shot at redemption and he kicked it through the goalposts in overtime as Western Michigan defeated Eastern Michigan 20-17 on Saturday.
Grant had missed wide to the right on a potential game-winning kick as time ran out in regulation.
The Broncos (5-3, 3-1 Mid-American) scored first in OT, then were called for a pair of penalties that helped Eastern Michigan (2-5, 0-3) reach the 2 before Caleb Bailey and Robert Spillane stuffed EMU in back-to-back tackles. Eagles' kicker Paulie Fricano's field goal try just shaved the outside of the right goalpost, cementing Western Michigan's win.
Jarvion Franklin had his third straight 100-yard rushing game -- 104 yards on 24 carries -- and a couple of records. He became Western Michigan's all-time career rusher with 4,281 yards and his third-quarter 7-yard touchdown ties him for the school's career best of 52.
EMU's Breck Turner capped a 92-yard drive with a TD run from the 3, tying the game at 17-17.
Western Michigan won a seven-overtime game earlier this season.
