OXFORD, OH(WKZO)-- The Western Michigan Broncos traveled to Miami of Ohio and played a well balance game en route to winning 24-21 and becoming bowl eligible. Alex Carder threw for 428 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a game that saw the Broncos play to their strengths offensively and dominate defensively.

For the first time in a while, the offense get in sync at the right time and the defensive line dominated for long enough to hold off the Redhawks long enough to get the victory. The nation's leading receiver, Jordan White had another 10 receptions for 127 yards and two touchdowns to add to his already extraordinary stats on the season.

The defensive line finally lived up to their 'Team Trainwreck' nickname by accounting for seven sacks on the night, and the defense held Miami to only 471 yards after giving up twice that many yards vs Toledo last week.

The team we saw tonight finally did what we asked and put it all together when it counted. John Potter made a crucial field goal instead of missing one, the defense buckled down when they needed to and the offense finally got things going again on the arm of Alex Carder and the hands of his receiving corps. After giving up over 200 rushing yards to Toledo's running back, the defense held Miami's rushing game to 54 yards and forced two turnovers.

After weeks of questioning the defense, they finally came out and let their play speak for itself. On a night where the Broncos had their backs against the wall, they responded at the right time and in the right way. Now all they have to do is take care of business next week versus Akron and they'll find themselves in a bowl game.
