BOISE, Idaho (AP) Taylor Powell threw for 298 yards and two touchdowns, Samson Evans rushed for a pair of scores and Eastern Michigan defeated San Jose State 41-27 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Tuesday.

Eastern Michigan (9-4) won a bowl game for the second time in program history. The team last won a bowl game in 1987, beating San Jose State in the California Bowl.

"We're fortunate to get this one," a teary-eyed Eastern Michigan coach Chris Creighton said. "I'm super proud of our guys. . They just continue to fight and they believe and they love and care about each other. So, when it all comes together like that, it's a pretty special moment."
