MOUNT PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

Romello Ross scored four touchdowns and Central Michigan beat Eastern Michigan 35-28 on Friday.

Eastern Michigan (1-11, 0-8 Mid-American) led 21-7 at halftime on two touchdown passes by Brogan Roback and a 35-yard interception return by Kyle Rachwal.

But Central Michigan (7-5, 6-2) fired back after the break, scoring on a 63-yard touchdown pass from Cooper Rush to Ross on its first possession, and then Ross' 3-yard run -- his second of the game -- tied it at 21.

Ross' third rushing touchdown, a 17-yarder, came after an Eastern fumble. But Ross was called for unsportsmanlike conduct after the play, and Eastern took advantage of the short field -- Darius Jackson busted a 49-yard touchdown run on the next play to tie it at 28.

Central responded though, as Rush hooked up with Corey Willis for a 67-yard touchdown pass to cap a busy third quarter.

Martez Walker had 119 yards rushing for Central, while Rush finished 25 of 39 for 391 yards and two TD passes.
