YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Tim Hiller threw for 275 yards and four touchdowns Saturday as Western Michigan defeated Eastern Michigan 35-14 in Mid-American Conference play.
Brandon West ran 25 times for 140 yards and a score for Western Michigan (5-6, 4-3). West set an FBS record for career all-purpose yards, and has 7,626 yards with one game left in his career.

Eastern Michigan (0-10, 0-6) scored first on Saturday on Alex Gillett's 4-yard run, set up by Chris May's interception and return to the Western Michigan 15. But Hiller came back with a pair of touchdown passes to Matt Stevens and another to Chad Baliko as the Broncos took a 28-7 lead late in the second quarter.
The Eagles, in their home finale, scored before the half on Gillett's 12-yard pass to Kinsman Thomas, making it 28-14.
Hiller and Robert Arnheim put the game out of reach when they connected on a 65-yard TD pass midway through the fourth quarter.
