What’s Going To Happen
All of a sudden, Ball State can play a little bit.
Beating a bad Northern Illinois team isn’t anything to get too fired up about, but for a program that hasn’t had a whole lot of fun in the Mike Neu era, battling hard in losses to Indiana and NC State – and beating the defending MAC champs – is a big step forward.
Now the Cardinals have to get by an Eastern Michigan team that has to bounce back fast after getting roasted by Central Michigan.
The Eagles aren’t able to run the ball a lick, and last week QB Mike Glass wasn’t able to bail the team out. Even so, this is a good passing offense that doesn’t make a whole lot of mistakes, but it’s not getting into the backfield enough to be disruptive.
Ball State’s pass defense isn’t able to slow things down – even with a slew of picks – there’s no pass rush, and it’s having a hard time getting much out of the offense when the secondary isn’t making enough big plays.
Eastern Michigan bounced back from last week’s clunker with a sharp passing day and just enough takeaways from its defense to survive a close, surprisingly entertaining four quarter battle.
