Today’s UTR Game of the Day takes place in Ypsilanti, Michigan where the Eagles of Eastern Michigan will play host to the BU Terriers.

Through 4 games, Paul Jackson leads the Eagles with 15 points per game along with 5 assists per game. Boubacar Toure also averages 10.8 PPG and 9.0 RPG for EMU.
Boston University comes into the game with 2 road wins out of 2 attempts – they won their season opener at Northeastern (a favorite to win the Colonial this season) and Albany. Tyler Scanlon leads the Terriers with 14.7 points per game and 6.7 rebounds per game; Max Mahoney also averages 13.7 PPG for BU. This will be the first of 6 straight games that BU will be playing away from home.
