The Eastern Michigan Eagles football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Eastern Michigan Eagles football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Eagles represent Eastern Michigan University in the NCAA's Mid-American Conference.

Although Eastern Michigan began competing in intercollegiate football in 1891,[1] the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1951. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since 1951, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
  • The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • However, the effect isn't as extreme for Eastern Michigan as it is in many other schools. While the NCAA only recognizes bowl game statistics as part of single-season and career statistics in 2002 and later,[2] the Eagles have only played in one bowl game since then (the 2016 Bahamas Bowl). Similarly, the Eagles are the only MAC school not to have played in the MAC Football Championship Game.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season.
