- One of the most entertaining teams in college football, Eastern Michigan is one of just three FBS squads to have multiple wins by a one-point margin this season (Miami, 13-12; WMU, 22-21). Coincidentally, the other two teams that can make that claim also reside in the MidAmerican Conference (Northern Illinois 3, Buffalo 2).
- Eastern has won or tied (28 wins, 4 ties) the turnover battle in 32 of its last 34 victories under Creighton.
- Malik Willis needs one passing TD to join Stephen Calvert as the only Liberty QBs ever to throw for 25 TDs in a single season. Calvert posted a program-record 29 TD passes in 2017 and added 28 more TDs in 2019.
- As a team, Liberty needs one passing TD to break the program single-season record set in 1990 and 2019. 7: First-year LB Storey Jackson needs seven tackles to become Liberty’s first player with a 100-tackle season since 2014 (Jacob Hagen had 108 tackles in 14 games).
