WKU (0-3) vs. Ball State (1-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
This has to be when WKU gets its season started after a rough 0-3 start. Losses to Wisconsin and Louisville were fine, but Maine? With Marshall up next, lose this on the road, and it’ll probably be and 0-5 start.
Ball State stays in state after losing at Notre Dame and Indiana, but it’s been tough so far, showing promise to potentially be a factor in the MAC race.
WKU’s biggest issue so far has scoring when getting the chance. It went just 1-of-4 in the red zone against Wisconsin, didn’t even get inside the 20 against Maine, and came away without points once in the 20-17 fight against Louisville.
With no running game and a mediocre passing attack so far, there can’t be any whiffs.
But Ball State is too strong at moving the chains, it’s 15th in the nation in red zone D, and the ground game is just enough to keep the team in games.
The Cardinals will run for at least 250 yards as they get the home win in a good fight against a desperate team.
