Northern Illinois (2-3) vs. Ball State (2-3) Game Preview

Free daily ATS lock pick just released: ‘100% confidence release!’

What’s Going To Happen

Northern Illinois has the defense and the upside to be in the MAC title hunt, but it just can’t get its offense going. When it scores more than 20 points, it’s 2-0. When it scores fewer, it’s 0-3. 

Ball State has yet to give up fewer than 24 points to any FBS team. 

The Cardinals have been okay – pushing Notre Dame and blasting away on Kent Stat last week. Beat Northern Illinois, and all of a sudden they’re 2-0 in the MAC with winnable games against Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan to follow. 

Great at coming up with takeaways thanks to the pass rush and the playmaking ability in the backfield, the Huskies need to get into the Ball State backfield before the offense gets going. 

The Cardinals are second in the MAC in total O – averaging 472 yards per game – and they’ll be able to get up enough to force the Huskies to open up the offense. 

They won’t be able to do it. Ball State will come up with a big home win to show off how the program is moving forward after a rough 2017.
