What’s Going To Happen
Very, very quietly, Ball State has managed to take a firm grip of the MAC West race with the 52. 14 blowout win over Toledo last week. Now it has to try to screw up the East and take Ohio’s disappointing season to a whole other lower level.
The Bobcats haven’t been awful – they’re 2-1 in the MAC – but they’re struggling way too much to put games away. Lose this, and suddenly just getting to six wins and a bowl game will be a fight.
They’re moving the chains and they have just enough of a running game to be okay – the O line is playing well – but the pass defense hasn’t shown up and there aren’t enough takeaways to make up for the other problems.
Ball State is second in the nation in takeaways and lead the MAC in scoring. The offense has been more than fine without QB Riley Neal and RB James Gilbert, but this week it’ll be about the defense that will keep the Ohio backfield from taking any sort of control.
The Toledo showed that Ball State might just be the best team in the West. This win will show that it might just be the best team in the conference.
