AP - Sports

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -- Bronson Hill scored back-to-back touchdowns and sparked a 21-point scoring run for Eastern Michigan to secure a 34-24 victory against Howard in the season opener for both teams Saturday night.

The Eagles were trailing by 11 points when Hill scored a touchdown with a minute to go in the third quarter. Hill ran for another touchdown three minutes into the fourth after an interception by Sean Kurtz set up the Eagles at the Howard 15, giving Eastern Michigan a 27-24 lead. A touchdown by Darius Jackson capped off the scoring streak. The Eagles are trying to come back from a 2-10 season.
