MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. -- Alex Gillett scored on a 30-yard run with 37 seconds left, and Eastern Michigan beat Central Michigan 35-28 on Saturday despite blowing a late 15-point lead.

Central Michigan (2-5, 1-2 Mid-American Conference) had tied the game at 28 when Ryan Radcliff hit Jerry Harris with a 2-yard touchdown pass with 1:09 remaining, then found Titus Davis on a two-point conversion. Davis and Radcliff had hooked up for an 11-yard score on the Chippewas' previous drive.

But Gillett needed only three plays to get the Eagles (4-3, 2-1) back on top, completing a 14-yard pass before a 20-yard run and the game-winning 30-yard score. Gillett had just 76 yards passing, but rushed for 93 more.

Eastern Michigan's vaunted running game produced all five touchdowns. Dominque White rushed for 161 yards and a score, and Javonti Greene had 96 yards and three TDs.

Radcliff threw for 351 yards and three touchdowns.
