YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -- Zach Johnson kicked two field goals and the Eastern Michigan defense forced six turnovers in a 19-2 victory over Western Michigan on Saturday.
The Eagles (3-6, 2-2 Mid-American Conference) took a 9-2 lead into the fourth quarter before Johnson connected on a 50-yard field goal with 12:56 remaining. Jacory Stone put the game out of reach 3 1/2 minutes later, scoring on a 19-yard pass from Kyle McMahon.
Eastern Michigan then controlled the clock behind Pierre Walker, who ran for a career-best 151 yards on 33 carries.
Western Michigan (3-6, 2-3) was hampered throughout the day by turnovers.

The Eagles also intercepted three passes, including two by redshirt freshman Ryan Downard.
With his team leading 3-2, Dontayo Gage gave Eastern Michigan a 9-2 lead with a 55-yard TD run with 7:16 left in the third quarter, fending off C.J. Wilson for the final 25 yards with a stiff-arm.
